No bake biscuit salami

No bake biscuit salami

No bake biscuit salami is an appetizing dessert which is very popular in Romania, many of us would talk about it as being a childhood favourite. It is the kind of dessert that once you have a bite, you cannot stop eating it. No wonder this is so popular, anyone can make it from really cheap ingredients, no bake, no fuss. But what you get is a whole range of flavours and textures. Why salami? Because of its shape of a salami, but no, it has no meat in it whatsoever. Swap milk for water and butter for margarine, and you get a delightful vegan dessert. So simple!

Making it is great fun, especially for kids, those little hands would love getting all messy. Why not try it for this Easter Sunday? Everybody will be more than pleased with your biscuit roll. My mum still makes it every now and then. We have always had this tradition that on a Sunday we get to have the best meal of the week, and dessert can never ever miss from the table. After a full week, there is nothing like putting your feet up and enjoying your doing nothing. Sundays are definitely my favourite!

No bake biscuit salami

Ingredients:

  • 200 g rich tea biscuits
  • 50 g pistachios
  • 50 g mini marshmallows
  • 100 g Turkish delight
  • 90 ml milk
  • 40 g butter
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Method:

  • Break the biscuits into small(ish) pieces. I used rich tea biscuits, but any other plain biscuits should do.

  • Cut the Turkish delight into small pieces. I used chocolate covered rose flavoured turkish delight, but any flavour can be used.  Or even better, a combination of flavours, this will make the biscuit salami flavourful and colourful.

  • Add the biscuits and the Turkish delight pieces into a large bowl together with the marshmallows, pistachios, vanilla extract and mix well. Pistachios can be swapped for walnuts, if you like.
  • In a small saucepan, add the milk, butter, cocoa powder and sugar and bring to a boil, so that the butter can be melted completely, you will get a thick chocolate sauce. This takes no more than 2 minutes, so do keep an eye on it.
  • Add the chocolate sauce to the dry ingredients and mix everything really well. Set aside for about 5 minutes so the biscuits can soften.
  • Place some clingfilm or kitchen foil on the work surface and use your hands to shape the biscuit mixture into a salami or a roll.

  • Slice and serve chilled.

    The marshmallows and pistachios seem like a great addition to biscuit salami, I’m sure it’s yummy πŸ™‚ I always make it with raisins and Turkish delight, but I’ll also add some pistachios next time!
