Chocolate salami (Salame di cioccolato)

This dessert is very popular amongst the Italian families and it is usually eaten with coffee, after lunch. It is sometimes served as dessert in trattorias, especially in those rural trattorias you can find along the Po river at the border between Lombardy and Emilia Romagna regions of Italy. There are many variations of the theme, of course, and this is down to the local culinary customs, as always happens in Italy. It's a rustic dessert that probably would never find a place in those fancy restaurants, but it is very good to eat and this is what really matters!
