How to do a Tim Tam Slam.
What are Tim Tams? They are a chocolate cookie that (I’m told) originated in Australia. In America they are made by Pepperidge Farm and they are a wafer/mousse cookie covered in chocolate.
To do a Slam: Bite off the corners on two opposite sides (diagonal from each other). Place one bitten off corner in a hot chocolate or mocha and drink up some of the hot beverage through the other bitten off corner– pulling the hot beverage up through the cookie like a straw. Pop the WHOLE cookie in your mouth and it EXPLODES in warm gooey chocolate happiness! (If you don’t pop the whole thing in your mouth you will have chocolate running all over you…just FYI). In our area, Tim Tams are only available near Christmas, so Tim Tam Slams have become a fun Christmas tradition!
My thoughts: Thanks to my cousin-in-law Eden for the yummy mocha recipe and to my friend Andreya for showing us all how to do Tim Tam Slams….I am forever indebted for the hours of fun and laughter!!!
