Tim Tam Brownies

Possibly one of the most wicked brownies in exsistence. The Tim Tam brownie.
What exactly is a tim tam? You may wonder what this chocolate coated goodness is that I speak of.
Tim Tams are possible one of the most wicked things that finds its way into my pantry. Trust me, a packet of those babies doesn't stay there long. They're compiled of two layers of chocolate biscuit wedged with a chocolate cream and then coated, or double coated in an outer layer of chocolate. Add brownie to that mix and you're in for a death by chocolate treat. 

Moist chocolate brownie, chocolate, chocolate malt biscuit, light chocolate cream, chocolate malt biscuit, chocolate, and moist chocolate brownie again. 

Add some ice cream for a quick dessert!
But wait, it gets better. Tim Tams come in all different flavours, as well as white, dark, milk and double coated varieties. Find yourself trying to decide between choc mint tim tams, caramel, rum and raisin, cookies and cream, black forest, (and the list goes on). It's a near impossible task to decide! So mix it up and make your choice of flavoured Tim tam Brownie! You wont regret it (but your waistline might)





TIM TAM BROWNIE

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 packet tim tam biscuits

Preheat your oven to 190C.
Melt butter and remove from heat. Stir through the cocoa and brown sugar until combined.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Next, blend in the flour and salt. Spoon a thin layer of batter into a lined dish. Arrange the tim tam biscuits on the top of this batter as desire. Cover the biscuits with the remainder of the mixture and smooth the top. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove, and  when cooled, cut into squares serve with ice cream.

  3. This is great! We just move to Australia from the States and I was looking for gifts to send back to friends, but wasn't sure if the Tim Tams would survive the heat/air travel - I think I'll make them a batch of these!

  9. I made these and they were good... but the tim tams were still quite crunchy, I kinda expected them to be a lot more 'mushy'

    1. if you want the biscuits to be "mushy", you'd have to cut off the ends and soak them quickly in something like milk before putting them into the batter. thanks for dropping by!
