Chocolate salami is a Portuguese and Italian dessert made from cocoa, broken biscuits, butter, eggs and a bit of port wine or rum. The dessert became popular across Europe and elsewhere, often losing alcohol as an ingredient along the way. One example of such equivalent dish is Lithuanian desert tinginys (Lithuanian: lazy), which is made out if cocoa, broken biscuits, condensed milk and butter, and sometimes nuts, however alternative recipes exist under the same name of the dish.
Chocolate salami is not a meat product. The appellation "salami" stems from physical resemblance. Like salami, chocolate salami is formed as a long cylinder and is sliced across into discs for serving. These discs are a brown, chocolaty matrix (like the red meat of salami) peppered with bright bits of cookie (like the white flecks of fat in salami). In Portugal, they are typically made using Marie biscuit.  Some varieties also contain chopped nuts, such as almonds or hazelnuts and may be shaped like truffles.
In Greece, chocolate salami is called Mosaiko.
In Turkey, it is called Mosaic Cake.
