Chocolate Salami

by Kris Pitcher

If you're looking to break out of the rabbit rut for Easter, try the 'chocolate salami'. This is an Italian treat, disguised as a salami. Cut in cross sections the dark chocolate looks like meat, and the cookie bits resemble the fat, all rolled in powdered sugar looking like the "skin" of the salami. Who doesn't love a meat look-a-like?

Chocolate Salami
1/2 c honey
1/2 c butter, melted, plus extra
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 c cocoa owder
7 ounces sweet, dry cookies (vanilla wafers), crushed
1/2 c powdered sugar

Mix together the honey, butter, granulated sugar and cocoa powder. Stir in the crushed cookies. Coat a sheet of parchment paper with the extra butter. Transfer the mixture to the center of the paper. Shape into a log about 14" long and about 1 1/2 to 2 inches around. Wrap the log with the paper. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Unwrap the log, then roll it in the powdered sugar. Slice and serve!
