Ingredients (Serves 4-6)

  • 300 g biscuit cookies
  • 150 g butter (unsalted)
    Note

    Bring to room temperature to soften.

  • 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 140 g sugar
  • 35 ml marsala (2 1/3 tbsp)
    Note

    Can be substituted with sherry or rum.

  • 35 ml water (2 1/3 tbsp)
  • 50 g pine nuts

Directions

1

Place the biscuit cookies in a food processor and process until roughly crumbled.

Advice

If you don't have a food processor, you can put the biscuit cookies in a thick plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.

2

In a bowl, combine the butter, cocoa powder, crushed biscuit cookies, sugar, and marsala diluted with water, then mix together.

3

Roughly chop half of the pine nuts and add them to the mixture, and add the remaining whole pine nuts as well. Mix together until moist throughout.

4

Divide the mixture into 4 to 6 equal portions, place on a clean cutting board or other work surface, and roll each into a "salami" shape. Wrap each in aluminum foil and tie with kitchen twine. If possible, let rest for about a day. Serve sliced as desired.
