In a large bowl, beat egg yolks with sugar until foamy (you can use an electric mixer to facilitate the beating process).
Add butter and beat until thoroughly mixed. Coarsely crumble the cookies.
Once crumbled, add the figs, coarsely chopped.
Add sifted cocoa powder and crumbled cookies.
Mix well with a spoon, and should you wish to add the liquor, add a dash of rum or your preferred liquor.
When the mixture holds together, place on a sheet of wax paper, and with your hands, roll the chocolate mixture inside the paper into a salami shape.
Pack tightly into paper and refrigerate for a few hours. Slice as you would a salami and serve.
