From my brother:

Tim Tam Recipes.

NAKED
Eat an icy-cold Tim Tam all on its lonesome.

TIM TAM HEAVEN
Crush 3 Tim Tams up into a dessert bowl, pour 1 shot glass of Port or
Muskat over them, top with sweetened cream and chocolate sprinkles.

TIM TAMS WITH BERRIES & ICECREAM
Tim Tams served with strawberry and vanilla icecream sprinkled with some
fresh berries.

TIM TAM CHEESECAKE
Make your favourite cheese cake however use crushed Tim Tam biscuits and
butter to make the crust.

TIM TAM SLAM
Also known as the TIM TAM Suck or TIM TAM Bomb. Grab a Tim Tam and a
warm drink (coffee, milo or tea). Nibble both ends off the biscuit and
use it as a straw for your drink. When its saturated, quickly SLAM it in
your gob before it falls apart. It can get kinda messy, but who cares
when it tastes that GOOD!

TIM TAM CHOCOLATE SUNDAE
Twiggy at www.geocities.com recommends the "Tim Tam Sundae". Get 4 Tim
Tam Chocolate Biscuits (roughly chopped), add extra creamy Ice Cream,
then 2 tablespoons Hot Fudge Chocolate and sprinkle on some Toppings to
taste. Look at their photo of the final product
(www.geocities.com/SoHo/Atrium/2436/timtams/recipies.html):


TIM TAM CHEWY CARAMEL EXPLOSION
At Arnotts (www.arnotts.com) they suggest the Chewy Tim Tam Caramel
Explosion. Get 1 pack Chewy Caramel Tim Tams roughly chopped, 8 generous
scoops Vanilla Ice-cream & 8 tbs Caramel Topping with Chocolate
sprinkles to garnish.


TIM TAM THICKSHAKE
The Editors at www.coffeebreak.com.au recommend the "Tim Tam
Thickshake". Mix a packet of Tim Tams, 8 scoops of vanilla icecream &
400ml milk in a blender. Rich, thick and full of chocolate. Hmmm. They
even photographed their yummy creation


TIM TAM CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
At www.coffeebreak.com.au they also have this awesome recipe for "Tim
Tam Chocolate Mousse". Get 2 packets Instant Chocolate Mousse (Mocha
flavour works well), 1 packet Arnott's Tim Tam biscuits and 2 tbs
Baileys. Method: Make up Chocolate Mousse according to packet details.
Place the Tim Tams into a food processor and process into fine crumbs.
Stir into mousse mix, and add Baileys. Stir gently. Allow to chill (as
per mousse packet details). Then serve!

TIM TAM FONDUE
I haven't been able to find a Tim Tam Fondue recipe yet, but I'm sure it
must exist. Hmmm, just imagine dipping fresh strawberries, pineapple
pieces, berries, banana and mango into a warm thick Tim Tam sauce.


TIM TAM MARTINI
Make the Tim Tam Thickshake (above) but add nip of Baileys (Irish Cream
Liquor), Frangelico (Hazelnut Liquor), Kahlua (Coffee Liquor) or Creme
de Menth (Mint Liquor) to it.

STOP!!
It's bad enough they don't sell Tim Tams in the UK... never mind all

I've tried them once, bought from an Aussie shop in London but distance and
arm-&-a-leg-job prices preclude further indugence.

They are fantastic *sigh*

Heaven in a biscuit would be a fair description (if you're a chocolate
lover <g>).

They're a chocolate covered, filled biscuit - there are a whole lot of
varieties available now, including Tia Maria ones. I don't buy them for
myself as they have a bad habit of going very quickly. I don't know if
it's actually possible to open a packet of Tim Tams and only eat one or
two. I've sent them to a few people from RFC - some are hopefully on
their way to Japan at the moment.

You can see them here
http://www.arnotts.com/Biscuits/OurBiscuitsP.asp?BID=79

where you can also read a bit of Tim Tam trivia. They've been around for
quite some time - came out in 1963.

I believe I've seen them compared to Penguins, which you get in the UK,
but I don't know that they taste anything alike, as I've never had
Penguins.

They're actually going to Hag. But if you have Rona's address I'll send
her some too!

Similar... but that's all. Penguins are a very poor substitute.

Imagine a larger Penguin. Imagine it with real chocolate coating on it *as
thick* as one biscuit-&-choc Penguin layer. Imagine choc cream filling the
same thickness.

Maybe Australians would call our Penguins "Honey, I shrunk the Tim Tams".

Really??? How peculiar.
Mind you they are thick enough to hide a file in....who needs a cake.
Is it because they is brown? Might be made of meat. Or the filling might
actually not be chocolate cream but illegally harvested & pressed dried
vegetable resin :;

I can only imagine it's an Australian thing, "Keep Tim Tams for the
Country!"

(I first thought of "Tim Tams for the Tassies!" and "Tim Tams for the
Territories!" but reckoned that wouldn't work.)

or maybe a strange conspiracy by the makers of Penguins to never allow
anyone to know there's better out there.

Hmmmmmmm.

I've spent the last 5 years trying to work out how to export something to
Aus and being rebuffed... didn't think it worked both ways??~!!

Verrry funny, missy.

So, what sort do you want? I can't remember them all, especially as they
sometimes have limited edition ones. There's Tia Maria ones still, I
think, Chewy Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Original (of course), Double
Coated, and probably a few more.

I'm very behind with everything - even more than usual for Christmas -
so Chrissy parcels to the US won't be getting posted till Monday, so
there's still time to slip in a packet of Tim Tams. And one or two packs
shouldn't blow the postage budget out of the water. The Aussie Post site
says 4-6 working days for airmail, so if I'm lucky the parcels will make
it for Christmas, if not they'll be there soon after.
