Chocolate Salami

Amira shows us how to make a delicious dessert, known throughout the Middle East as “Sukseh”. This rich treat is both moist and crumbly at the same time. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser – chocolate lovers beware!

Crush three packages of tea biscuits into bite-sized pieces. Add them into a bowl, along with 8 oz of unsweetened cocoa powder, one can of sweetened condensed milk, and 1 and 1/2 cups of melted butter. Mix until a moist dough.

Place a piece of wax paper onto a flat surface. Put half of the dough into the center of this paper, and shape it into a log. Roll the wax paper onto the log and twist both ends of the paper to seal it. Wrap this in a piece of aluminum foil. Place in a refrigerator overnight or for a few hours, and then it will be ready to serve.

After refrigerated, cut into slices. Serves well with one Tbsp. of ground pistachios, one Tbsp. of powdered sugar, and fruit on the side.
