Uruguayian salchichón de chocolate or chocolate salami is one of my favorite cookies from Uruguay. I decided to introduce this cookie during my cookie week. This is recipe number 2. You will find something similar in Italy, but since we are in Uruguay, of course we have to add the Latin American touch to it: dulce de leche. How to make dulce de leche from scratch I do explain in this blog post. And don’t you agree, doesn’t it look for real? If Uruguayans are good at something, it’s magically making something special out of the ordinary. Just like these salami cookies. You know, you basically throw together the ingredients, chill them, and then you cut off your salami slices. Well, OK, my version has you roast the hazelnuts, melt the chocolate and crush the cookies, but then you are actually good to go. Doesn’t this sound awesome?
I am so excited today to share this post with you as Nina from the blog Törtchen – Made in Berlin (cupcakes made in Berlin) is sharing a very German recipe with us here. As you can see from my very long blog title, it is close to impossible to translate this treat I ate so often as a child. Literally translated the dish is called “cold dog.” Why this is the case, I haven’t been able to find out other than it is done cold, so with no baking, but what I can assure you is that this is one of my favorite things to eat. I do distinctly remember licking my fingers after getting a piece and being very excited about the high amount of chocolate after each bite. Because, you know, chocolate is always great!
