Tim Tams are made up of a chocolate cream filling sandwiched by two chocolate malt biscuits and the whole thing is coated in chocolate. It’s hard to go wrong with three types of chocolate in one biscuit.
Tim Tams first came out in 1964 and was named after the winning horse in the 1958 Kentucky Derby which Mr Ross Arnott attended.
The original Tim Tams are mainly milk chocolate. But in recent years Arnott’s have come up with more imaginative varieties to include Chewy Caramel, Creamy Truffle Temptation, Tia Maria, Black Forest Fantasy, Classic Dark (my favourite) and a whole lot more.
Devotees have what they call Tim Tam Slam. It is supposed to be the best way to enjoy Tim Tams. You basically bite the opposite corners of the biscuit then use it as a ‘straw’ to suck up your favourite beverage. I’ve never tried this (as I do not like soggy, wet biscuits) but you can see Hugh Jackman demonstrating this on Oprah when he was promoting the movie Australia.
