I’m pretty sure this is a Tuscan recipe. It’s essentially a log of chocolate with crushed white cookies in it, sliced to look like salame. The white cookies in contrast to the chocolate looks just like the coarsely chopped white fat against the dark pink meat in a salame toscano. Buon Appetito!

side note: this recipe involves eating raw eggs, i feel better about this if i can get them right from the farm, if not right from the chicken
