For starters, let the butter warm to room temperature while you start crumbling the biscuits in a large bowl.

Once the butter is soft, work it with a spoon and add the chocolate, the sugar, the eggs and the rum. Once the mixture is ready and well-blended pour it in the bowl containing the biscuits. Work the mixture again until all the biscuit crumbs are completely coated with the chocolate mixture.
Take the dough you obtained and shape it like a salami. Then put it on a layer of cling film and wrap it.
Put the chocolate salami in the fridge for a couple of hours.
After a couple of hours, it’s time to slice your chocolate salami.
