Tim Tam Slam

I am just between here and there-

getting ready to leave,

hoping to get lots done when I arrive-

going back to the east coast to get the house

ready for the season.

So I donโ€™t have a lot of time to write-


I found this series of pictures that my son

took on my camera over the holidays

and thought I would share my own

version of this Australian method of eating

Tim Tams.


First you bite off the corners on two sides.


Get your coffee ready and hold the Tim Tam carefully so you donโ€™t drop it into the cup!


Warn your son that he should not take any more pictures because this could get messy!


Apparently they missed the whole suck the liquid gently up into the biscuit –

and jumped to the have your mouth wide open so you can stick it into your

mouth without delay!


Iโ€™m not quite sure what this one is supposed to show- except that I took

two bites to eat it and didnโ€™t end up with a dripping chocolate mess!

    • Since you have never even tried it- you can’t be sure you wouldn’t like it this way. I like the crunch too, but there is still some crunch- Oh hey- I don’t care- eat them the way you want to.

  1. We love Tin Tams. Unfortunately they are very expensive here. Hoping the family from Australia bring some when they visit next year. I like the idea of using port instead of tea.

  2. HI Susan-
    My family in Australia sends an occasional package of TimTams our way- so we can indulge pretty often.
    I like the port suggestion. too, especially with a package of double dark chocolate
    biscuits I have stashed in the cupboard! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Our test of a good biscuit/cookie whatever you like to call it is whether you can dunk it without it falling into the mug. Those tim tams look like they pass the test!

  4. haha! love the tim tam slam…when I manage to find tim tams here in Canada.

    Aren’t kids great! Though I’m sure you have several compromising pictures of them as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I have some pictures- but my son has been on his own for the last 15 years so mine are mostly dated. I take pictures of his children now!
