chocolate saucisson

Sometimes I want to make something just because it amuses me. That was the case with this Chocolate Saucisson (or salami). I just love this…especially the powered sugar “mold” on the outside. It’s a confection that’s made all over Europe, but I think the chocolate salami is actually having a moment here in New York. This holiday season I’ve seen them for sale at several of the small “fancy food” shops around Brooklyn and Manhattan. TWD– so on trend!

This seems more like a candy than a cookie to me, although it does have cookies in it. It’s no-bake, with the crushed cookies and dried fruit and nuts bound into a log by a truffle-like chocolate mixture (containing raw eggs, btw). I used Thé Brun cookies that I had leftover from the Moka Dupont I made a couple months ago, apricots and pistachios, but I think you could certainly mix up the add-ins. A little slice of the saucisson is all you need, because it’s really rich. That said, I keep going into the fridge to cut off slivers, so I’m glad I only made a small one!

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and happy holidays!

  1. Looks great, How smart you were to use your leftover cookies in this recipe!

  2. This looks so cool!

  3. I wasn’t a fan of this, but my colleagues liked it. Glad you had fun with it. Merry Christmas.

  4. Truffle-like sounds delicious. Glad this was a hit for you. Happy Holidays.

  5. Amazing! I tried this for the first time this year in Portland (at Olympia Provisions) and loved it! Can’t wait to try to make my own 🙂

  6. There is a shop here in Nashville, Oliver and Sinclair, who makes these and sells them as “Chocuterie” which is pretty appropriate and cute. I love your recipe and will make this soon to add to my life’s work of fulfilling my chocolate craving. Happy Holidays. T
