This sweet dessert roll has taken inspiration from Italian and Portuguese cuisines. It is pretty easy to imagine what a salami roll would look like. You also might think it can’t be as easy to make as we’re claiming it to be. But trust us when we say that once you attempt to make this, you won’t be able to stop. This salami is so much better than all the other salamis because instead of any meat, it has chocolate as its base and is a delicious addition to hot beverages.

The colour of the chocolate log is a deep chocolatey brown, and it has biscuits or nut specks that resemble the white specks found in regular salami.
