Chocolate Salami Version #1

Chocolate salami is a no-bake dessert, a combination of cookies and chocolate. It looks like salami, but is actually a dessert and is so easy to make.


  • 1 1/2 packages vanilla wafers ((about 11 oz each))
  • 2 sticks of butter (melted)
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Most boxes of vanilla wafers are approximately 11 oz each. For this recipe, you’ll need to use 1 and 1/2 packages of vanilla wafers.
  2. Crush the cookies so you have some coarse pieces and smaller. You can use your hands, or use a rolling pin or a mallet to crush the cookies right in the bag that they are packaged in.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter, cocoa, a can of condensed milk and salt.
  4. Add the crushed cookies to the bowl and mix to combine.
  5. Scoop out part of the mixture onto parchment paper or aluminum.
  6. Shape the cookie mixture into the shape of a log and wrap it tightly inside the parchment paper or aluminum foil. You should have 4-5 chocolate salamis. Chill in the refrigerator or the freezer.
  7. When you’re ready to serve, sift some powdered sugar over the Chocolate Salami and slice into pieces.


The Chocolate Salami can be stored in the refrigerator for a week or freeze them up to 6 months in advance in a freezer ziplock bag or an airtight container.
