Let’s see what we need for this no bake Romanian chocolate salami dessert.


🍪 Ingredients For This Chocolate Salami

Ingredients for this dessert are simple and some of them you probably already have it around.

used ingredients

We are going to use some:

  • Petit Beurre/digestive biscuits/butter cookies
  • Unsalted butter, milk, sugar
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Turkish delight, raisins
  • Vanilla and rum extract
  • Finely chopped/ground walnuts
  • Icing sugar to decorate


🎂 How To Make Chocolate Biscuit Salami

The process of making this chocolate salami is very simple. It takes longer to set, than to make it.

Step 1: make the cocoa syrup

We begin by putting a pot on the stove at medium heat. Pour the milk in, add the raisins, sugar, butter and cocoa. Stir occasionally until the sugar and butter dissolves and bring to a boiling point. Boil for 30 seconds. Turn off the heat.

Step 2: break the biscuits & add syrup

Break the biscuits with your hands in small pieces into a large bawl.

Add the extracts to the cocoa syrup and pour this hot liquid over the biscuits. Stir well with a spoon/wooden palette until the liquid is well absorbed and all the biscuit pieces are covered with the cocoa syrup.

Step 3: form the salami

Cut the Turkish delight into small pieces. Add them to the biscuit mixture along with the ground walnuts. Stir well to really blend all things together.

Place this mixture onto a parchment paper (or cling film) and using the paper mold it into a salami shape. Wrap it tight into this salami shape and secure the ends with strings/wooden clips.

Step 4: let it set in the fridge

Place the roll in the fridge to set for about 4-5 hours or better let it overnight. Take it out, unwrap the salami and coat it with icing sugar to give it the ‘real salami’ look. Use your hand to rub the icing sugar all over the chocolate salami.

Variate using with desiccated coconut some times. Or even cocoa powder. To complete decoration, use your imagination and top with nuts, almond flakes, pieces of dried fruits. As you feel at the moment.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Resting Time: 5 hours
Total Time: 5 hours 30 minutes
Servings: 10 slices


  • 4 cups (450g) Petite Beurre/digestive/butter biscuits
  • 1/2 cup (100g) butter
  • 1/2 cup (100g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (40g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (200ml) milk
  • 1 1/2 cups (150g) chopped & ground walnuts
  • 2/3 cup (100g) raisins
  • 1 cup (150g) Turkish delight
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp rum extract
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar to decorate


  • Bring to a boil on medium heat the milk, sugar, cocoa, raisins and butter together. Boil for 30 seconds. Turn off the heat and prepare the biscuits.
  • Break the biscuits into small pieces in large bawl. Add the flavored extracts to the cocoa syrup and pour the hot liquid over the biscuits. Mix well so they are all covered by the syrup and starting to absorb the liquid. Let aside until you take care of the Turkish delight.
  • Cut the Turkish delight in small pieces. Add it to the biscuit mixture. Add the chopped and ground walnuts too. Stir well to incorporate all things together.
  • Place this mixture onto a parchment paper (or cling film) and give it a 'salami' form. Wrap it very tight with the parchment paper into this salami form and secure the ends.
  • Place it into the fridge and let it rest until firm, about 4-5 hours. Overnight is better.
  • Unwrap and coat with icing sugar. Slice and serve with a cup of coffee or your favorite tea.


This is a relatively firm dessert when set overnight. If you prefer a bit moist texture, add 50-70 ml extra milk. Turkish delight has also a very strong, sweet flavor. Keep that in mind when replacing with other dried/candied fruits.
