Recipe: Chocolate "Salami"

chocolate "salami"When we saw a recipe for Karl Mace and Nick Gough's chocolate "salami" pop into our inboxes a couple weeks ago, we were a bit skeptical. Turns out the Maine chefs had created a rich, complex, and fruity chocolate fudge, and when our recipe tester brought it in for us to taste, it quickly vanished from the kitchen. We think this is a great treat to put out for your family to nibble on during Christmas Day.
