Chocolate Crunch Salame

Such a pretty number to pull out for a party or dinner, and perfect to have in the fridge to slice up when you fancy a chocolate hit. Without using the old school crushed biscuits for the crunch. It's a simple melt and mix number - and even easier if you happen to have a Thermomix - I have been living on this over the holidays.
  • 300g Dark Chocolate (70% or higher) broken into pieces
  • 150g Coconut oil
  • 50g Sunflower seeds
  • 100g Hazelnuts
  • 50g Buckwheat Groats (these you can get online Buy Whole Foods Organic Buckwheat Raw 1 kg)
  • 1/2 cup soft dried figs, chopped
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 2-3 tbsp Cocoa Powder (or icing sugar if you want the white look)
In an bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, melt the chocolate and coconut oil then remove from heat. Place the nuts and seeds into a magimix or blender and blitz until chopped well. Do chop with a knife if you want. Tip all the ingredients into the molten chocolate mixture and stir well to combine. Line a baking tray and pour the mixture in, and leave in the fridge for 20-30 minutes until malleable but not runny. Cut two sheets of baking paper (about 10" x 14") and taking half the mixture, roll into a sausage in the paper, twisting the ends shut tightly. Place back in the fridge for 2 hours at least. Unroll and sprinkle with cocoa or icing sugar to serve. To go the extra mile you can tie with string like a salami. Slice onto a wooden chopping board and serve on the table.
