Instructions
  1. Roughly chop the biscuits either using the pulse button in a food mixer or by placing them in a large freezer bag, sealing it and bashing them a couple of times with a rolling pin. Kids will have fun doing this ;)
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in a large bowl over a bain-marie over low heat (or in a microwave in 30″ increments). Once melted, remove from the heat and sift the cocoa powder, mixing well to remove any lumps.
  3. Meanwhile, combine your plant-based milk, vegetable oil, brown sugar, vanilla extract and liqueur (if using it) into a big bowl. Using a whisk, mix them well.
  4. Now fold in the dark chocolate + cocoa powder and stir with a spatula so that everything is well combined. Add the roughly crushed biscuits to the bowl, fold them in gently. You should have a dough that sticks together.
  5. Now lay some parchment paper (or plastic wrap) on your table. Pour the mixture in the center and start form a nice compact sausage shape (it can get messy here!). Then roll the parchment paper tightly and give it its final shape with your (clean) hands. You can roll it again on the table a few times, in order to create a smooth, rounded log. Close the ends like a giant candy by twisting them and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  6. Once the Vegan chocolate salami is firm, remove it from the fridge, carefully unwrap it and sprinkle some icing sugar. Cut into slices and serve fridge cold. Enjoy!
