Sweet Biscuits Salami | Salam de Biscuiti

 - 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.

 - 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.

 - 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.


  1. You are the best. You've brought me back to my childhood. I left Romania when I was barely a teenager. I completely forgot about the wonderful sweets I used to eat. Now I know how to make mucenici (I even forgot their name) and biscuits salami. I used to love the salami and I think I am going to make it soon since I have all the ingredients. Do you know of a quicker way to shape the mucenici. I am not a great cook so all the rolling might prove to be a challenge. Thank you for haring the recipes. Breanna

  2. Thank you very much for the note, Breanna.

    About shaping the mucenici: I frankly like to do them by hand, personally. But if you're looking for some help, some tools do exist (though they might be tough to find). Here's how they generally look like: https://www.google.com/search?q=aparat+mucenici&source=lnms&tbm=isch
