DIY Recipe: How to Make Salchichón

The other day I had a sweet baking partner in my kitchen — EZEKIEL. His mom Vale gave me a great recipe for a traditional Uruguayan dessert called Salchichón (pronounced “sal-chee-ch-oh-n”). Ever since, I’ve had many people ask me how I made it. Many people have asked for the recipe, so I decided to post it in the style of Pioneer Woman — with steps and pictures. ENJOY!






Salchichón de chocolate

1 C. Nesquik cocoa
1 C. Maria Cookies (thin cracker-like sweet cookies)
7 T. butter
1 egg
2 T. dulce de leche or thick caramel sauce
+ another 1/2 C  dulce de leche or thick caramel sauce

1. Heat the butter until it’s completely melted (by stove or microwave)

2. Mix the Nesquik  in the butter stirring constantly. Do the same with the egg and the dulce de leche or caramel.

3. Take previously broken the maria cookies into little pieces and mix them into the chocolate mixture well.

4. Cut a piece of foil and stretch half of the dough on the paper until it’s about 2cm thick.

5. Fill with whatever you’d like (I do dulce de leche) and roll up the chocolate and close the paper.

Repeat with the other half of the dough.
6. Put in the freezer for at least an hour.
7. Slice into round pieces and serve!
Buen Provecho!
