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. 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!

Rich tea biscuits, or any plains crackers are the best, as we want them to keeo their shape when soacked with the milk mixture. Digestives/graham crackers would be too crumbly, and a bit salty too. The Turkish delight can be of any flavour, from chocolate to roses, or any fruity flavour. They do stick to the knife when you cut them into pieces, that’t the bit boring bit.

Well, l must say, in Romania we don’t use marshmallows or pistachios for the chocolate salami, that’s my own take on the childhood dessert. But they pair well with the other ingredients, and most certainly work well in terms of flavour and texture.

We usually make it for the New Year’s Party, it’s a bit of a traditional for us, but of course can be enjoyed anytime, it’s not a seasonal dessert at all. Serve it chilled from the fridge, it’s a delish!

Chocolate salami recipe with marshmallows and pistachios, a delicious no-bake dessert full of flavour and colour.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Romanian
Servings: 10 slices
Calories: 169 kcal
Author: Daniela Anderson
Ingredients
  • 200 g rich tea biscuits /crackers (7 oz)
  • 50 g pistachios (1/2 cup)
  • 50 g mini marshmallows (1/2 cup)
  • 100 g Turkish delight (1 cup)
  • 90 ml milk (3 oz)
  • 40 g butter (1 1/2 oz)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
Instructions
  1. Break the biscuits into small(ish) pieces. I used rich tea biscuits, but any other plain biscuits should do.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Add the chocolate sauce to the dry ingredients and mix everything really well. Set aside for about 5 minutes so the biscuits can soften a bit, but still keep their shape a bit.

  6. 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.
  7. Once you have your roll, refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight.
  8. Slice and serve chilled.

    This look fantastic and by the sound of it I wouldn’t be able to have it at home because I would go and nibble of bits ALL the time 🙂

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