Chocolate Salami

This is one of the first deserts I’ve learned to prepare. I know, it’s simple and I believe that most of you have their own version, but I like this one very much as I got it from my grandma. I usually remember this recipe at this time of year and today I’ve been thinking how it’s never been published on this blog even though photos have been sitting in a draft for years :) Anyway, it uses honey cereals, a local brand from Serbia, but you can use Kellogg’s Honey pops. Any cereal of this kind will work fine in this recipe. Even corn flakes, although, I think it’s crumblier when you make it with corn flakes.
