Vegan Chocolate Salami/ Gluten Free Desset/ Vera's Cooking/

Today, my blog has been featured and I have guest posted this recipe at Fae’s Twist & Tango!  I’m so excited to share this delicious vegan, gluten-free dessert with you. Chocolate Salami is a classic no-bake treat. It is named “Salami” because it really does look like one. I remember making it when I was a child, because it’s one of the easiest desserts to make.

I know how Fae loves to give a little twist to the recipes, and I’d like to do the same here. So here it is, healthier version of “classic”, no butter, no eggs, vegan and gluten-free chocolate salami!


  • 1 cup dates, pitted, chopped
  • 1/3 cup prunes, chopped
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 2 ounces coconut milk
  • 100 g  (vegan) dark chocolate

Chocolate Salami

Process dates and prunes together with coconut milk in a food processor until well blended.

      As much as I love traditional recipes, and nostalgic “flavors from childhood”, this Chocolate Salami is no less. It’s made healthy without sacrificing flavor. No cookies, no butter… you’re going to love it!
