Spicy chocolate "salami"

The chocolate salami, even though may sounds gross, is the most delicious dessert ever! In fact, we are not talking about the same salami that you put in sandwich or pizza, but an Italian traditional dessert that look alike it (that's why it's called "salami"), made of chocolate sugar and cookies. How gross can it be? Actually it sounds delightful!!!
This is the first recipe I've posted on my Italian blog few months ago. And there is a precise reason why I choose just this recipe: it has been my first esperiment in the kitchen!
I was 10 and I saw this recipe on tv, in a show for kids. I decided to try it and I invited over few friends to share it with.
How was it? A disaster!!!
But don't worry, the recipe I'm giving you now is bulletproof and deliciuos!!!! I made few change to the traditional recipe, eliminating the raw eggs and using mexican chocolate. And I've added a little kick...

Ingredients for 1 salami:

180 gram mexican chocolate

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon grounded cinnamon

75 ml heavy cream

75 ml milk

50 gr dark cocoa powder

350 gr wafer cookies or sugar cookies (grounded, not perfectly fine)

1 tablespoon rhum liquor (optional)

almond flour (or very finely grounded almonds)

powdered sugar

Chop the chocolate and put it in a bow with cayenne pepepr and cinnamon.Bring to a boil cream and milk and pour it on top of the chocolate e let rest few minutes. Then stir well.Stir in the cocoa (sifted) and the grounded cookies and mix well.Take a large piece of foil. Sprinkle with almond flour and put the chocolate mixture on top and shape it in a long roll, helping it with the foil. Refrigerate for few hours.Remove from the foil, sprinkle with powdered sugar and with the hands press the sugar onto the salmi. Slice it (thin) on bias and serve it.
