101RECIPES: Barley chocolate salami

It’s commonly called “barley coffee”, but the only things it has in common with coffee is the color, the pleasure of tasting it and the joy of the ritual of the cup. The barley drink can be offered to the whole family, as it is naturally caffeine free. Today it will be our ingredient for this recipe for chocolate salami with barley, a delight that will win over young and old. Are you ready?

Barley chocolate salami


  • 200 gr of dry cookies
  • 80 gr of bitter cocoa powder
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 100 gr of butter
  • 50 ml (1 espresso cup) of barley 
  • 80 gr of sugar
  • 30 gr of almonds



To make the barley chocolate salami, the first thing to do is to prepare the barley cup.
Set it aside and let it cool.
Melt the butter and let it cool.
Now you can crush the cookies and almonds coarsely with a meat pounder or mortar.
In another container, put the egg yolks and sugar and beat them with an electric whisk or a small whisk until you obtain a frothy and homogeneous cream. At this point, add the melted butter and barley, which will have cooled in the meantime, and the cocoa. Continue to mix and, when the mixture is creamy, add the cookies and chopped almonds.
The dough for your chocolate salami is almost ready: you just need to work it with a spatula for a couple of minutes, then you can roll it on a piece of baking paper, giving it the typical shape of a salami. Now put the barley chocolate salami in the refrigerator and leave it there for 3 hours, so that it solidifies well. If you prefer a firmer, more chilled consistency, put it in the freezer instead of the refrigerator and leave it for a couple of hours. Once removed from the fridge or freezer, put your chocolate barley salami on a tray and slice it before serving – just like a real salami!
