Since 80% of the United States is struggling with freezing weather, warming up with a Hot Cocoa Bomb sounds like a great idea! Then, while you are at it, liven things up a bit by doing the Tim Tam Slam!
Have you ever had or heard of Tim Tams? They are a chocolate biscuit sandwiched with chocolate cream and covered with chocolate. They are a product of Australia and they are named after a winning Kentucky Derby Horse from 1958!
Not only are Tim Tams known for their unique texture and flavor, they are also known for the Tim Tam Slam, which the cookie company, Arnott's, developed and promoted themselves since 2002. My SIL, Adrian, introduced our family to this phenom a couple of years ago and it is so much fun, not to mention delicious! To show you how it is done, Alicia and Adrian graciously made a video to demonstrate it for you! Please like and share our videos! You will really be helping us out!
Target used to be the place that we could get Tim Tams, but I don't know if it is because of the pandemic or what, but they don't have them now and neither does Walmart. But, I did find big family sized packages at Cost Plus World Market! Or, you can order them on Amazon. I hope you can get hold of them, because we would love to challenge you to try the Tim Tam Slam and tell us what you think!
Doing the Tim Tam Slam with a Hot Cocoa Bomb is like a party in a mug!
So, here are the steps to follow once again:
Next, demonstrate how to suck up the hot cocoa and slam the Tim Tam into your mouth! Then, let everyone start to give it a try!
It is amazing how fast the biscuit gets soft when the cocoa hits it! It goes from being crunchy to a fudgy, deliciousness. You need to hurry and slam it into your mouth before it falls apart! You are going to love it.
The funny thing is this only seems to work with Tim Tams. There is just something about them that lends them to The Slam! I've tried it with a variety of other cookies without success.
Let us know if you give the Tim Tam Slam a try, (especially if you do it with a Hot Cocoa Bomb.) Did your family have fun with it?
