Tim Tam Slam
My dad and mom have had a wonderful sister in their mission, Sister Utupo, from New Zealand. She's a wonderful, sweet, exuberant girl and she's going home this week. While we were visiting Mom and Dad, Sister Utupo taught us how to do a traditional "Tim Tam Slam". Tim Tams are delicious little cookies from the Kiwis and Sister Utupo was kind enough to give us some and impart her wisdom with us. The cookies are filled with chocolatey goodness and you dip them in a hot drink, like cocoa, and enjoy the yumminess that follows. Yes, it may be a little decadent, a little fattening (okay, more than a little), but goodness, it sure can turn a bad day around, I'm sure.
Here are her directions:
And our own demonstration:
Of course, just eating the cookies is enough to make anyone happy.
We are now converts to the wonder that is slamming Tim Tams...Yum!
