Prawn bisque can be frozen

The chocolate salami it is a typical dessert of the Italian tradition, loved by adults and children for its intense flavor and its soft and crunchy consistency at the same time. But how can you make a chocolate salami in the shape of a number? And why should we do it? The answer is simple: to give a touch of originality and personalization to our desserts, especially on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or holidays. A chocolate salami in the shape of a number can in fact represent the age of the birthday boy, the year of an anniversary or any other significant number.

Chocolate salami in the shape of a number

To make a chocolate salami in the shape of a number, you will need a basic recipe for chocolate salami and a number-shaped mold. The basic recipe for chocolate salami involves the use of simple and easily available ingredients, such as dark chocolate, butter, sugar, eggs and dry biscuits. You can find a detailed recipe for chocolate salami here.

Once you have prepared the mixture for the chocolate salami, you will have to pour it into the number-shaped mold. Make sure the mold is well buttered and floured, to prevent the chocolate salami from sticking. Pour the mixture into the mold, level it with a spatula and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours, until it has firmed up.

Once the chocolate salami has hardened, you can turn it out and decorate it as you like. For example, you can dust it with icing sugar, to give the effect of “seasoned” salami, or decorate it with melted chocolate, for a more delicious effect.

In short, making a chocolate salami in the shape of a number is not at all complicated, but it requires a little patience and creativity. The final result, however, will be an original and personalized dessert, which will amaze your guests and delight the palate.
