Sweet Biscuits Salami | Salam de Biscuiti


Ingredients:
 - One pound of petit beurre biscuits
 - Half pound of Turkish delight
 - Four ounces of unsalted butter
 - Half pound of walnuts
 - Eight spoons of cocoa powder
 - Half pound of sugar
 - Rum or vanilla essence (to taste). Last time I made this recipe, I added a shot of rum as well.

Preparation:
 - Crush the biscuits by hand - don't ground them completely, but leave some larger chunks as well, if possible.
 - Cut the Turkish delight and the walnuts in small pieces.
 - Warm up about 5 ounces of water, and mix with the sugar until it is completely melted.
 - Mix with the cocoa powder and with the butter (which could be melted in a pan to speed things up). Make sure there are no lumps of cocoa in the mix.
 - Add the biscuits, Turkish delight, and walnuts, and stir.
 - Place a sheet of plastic wrap on a table, pour some mix over, and roll it like a salami. Seal both ends with plastic wrap.
 - Store in the fridge for about 24 hours. This will harden the mix, and allow you to cut it in slices. Serve cold.

Presentation:
 - Remove the biscuit salami from the fridge, and quickly cut a few slices and place them on a plate.
 - I think chocolate looks great next to rose petals or orchids, so you can use some petals or whole flowers for your arrangement.
