  • In a medium sauce  on the stove heat the cream on a low heat or otherwise in a glass bowl in the microwave and add the chopped dark or milk chocolate and stir until melted.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except the icing sugar to the cream and chocolate mixture and put it in the fridge to cool down for about 15min.
  • Take  a piece of wax paper about 50cm long and scoop out the chocolate mixture lengthways onto the wax paper.  Fold the wax paper over the chocolate mixture and mould it into a long sausage form of about 30cm in length.   Tie up the ends and put the chocolate salami back into the fridge until firm.
