Chocolate salami

A.k.a. Salame di cioccolato. This is the quick and (super) yummy treat I made Friday night (2a.m. more or lesszzzzz).

I used this recipe, from Giallo Zafferano. It's very simple so I made a quick translation:

Ingredients (for 8 people):
300gr. cookies
150gr. butter (softened)
200gr. dark chocolate
2 eggs
100gr. sugar
2 spoons of rum (or rum aroma)
1/2 mug of almonds (this recipe didn't require them but almonds are good!)

Weekend at the movies #1

Here I'm, ready to start a new series. As you may have noticed I'm trying to concentrate all the things I love in these little weekly appointments to share everything I enjoy. I really hope this'll be useful for you, to discover new favourites :)
Now! since it's Friday, let's talk about movies!

Months ago Max made me watch "[Rec]2". I won't comment on that one (the only words that pop in my mind when I think about it are: creepy, GROSS, ghoulish and believe me, after the end, you won't kiss anyone for days! UGH!) but I love horror movies and, despite this one is from the same director, when I red about it I got curious so I decided to give it a shot. I've not watched it yet, I'll do it this w/e so I can't guarantee anything..

Title: Sleep tight  (original: Mientras duermes)
Director: Jaume Balaguerò
Gender: Horror
Year: 2011
