    MMMMM--------------------------TO SERVE-------------------------------
    Icing sugar

    Break the chocolate into pieces and add to a heatproof
    bowl with the butter. Place the bowl over a pan with
    boiling water on a low heat. Keep stirring until melted.
    Remove from the heat and whisk in the egg yolks. Add all
    the remaining ingredients and refrigerate until it’s
    firm enough to shape and not fall apart. This should
    take about an hour.

    Place half of the mixture on a piece of greaseproof
    paper or clingfilm and roll into a ‘salami’. Repeat with
    the other half of the mixture to make a second salami.
    Tie the ends with string and refrigerate overnight. To
    serve, roll in icing sugar then slice into discs.

    WAXED FRUIT If the fruit is waxed, either pour over hot
    water and rub the wax off with a paper towel or rub the
    fruit with half a lemon dipped in baking soda then rinse

    * ALMOND MEAL Simply add raw almonds (with skin on) to
    a blender and blitz in short bursts until it becomes a
    fine. Be careful not to grind too long as will end up as
    almond butter.
