Nigella's Chocolate Salame

The prefect gift at Christmas, chocolate Salame from Nigella.

I follow Nigella on Instagram and this was one of her Recipe of the day last week. The recipe is here and I can confidently say that this is not only delicious but it's the perfect gift at Christmas. I decided that this year I would make proper Italian chocolate salame as it has that extra special quality and richness that our chocolate biscuit cake misses out on and I think it's the creaminess from the eggs. It will slice straight from the fridge and goes perfectly with some after dinner espresso.

I watched this video on how to string the salame, made one and a half quantity of the recipe to produce one medium and two smaller salmae as gifts. If you are giving them as gifts and want a nut free version I think it would be acceptable to add digestive biscuits, dried fruit and some glace cherries as an alternative :)
