It’s not an actual salami, although it sure looks like one. This is a traditional Croatian dessert made around Christmas time. It’s simple, tastes great and is decorative looking.

  1. I was served some chocolate salami by some dear Romanian friends of mine at Christmas this past year. What a wonderful treat, and as a gift, means so much, being homemade.
