I saw a mention of Tim Tam Truffles on Cafe Chick's blog and couldn't resist clicking through to the recipe on Mrs Cake's blog. When I saw how short the list of ingredients was and how easy the truffles looked to make I knew I had to give it a go.
So while my lovely husband spent quality time with the bubby on Sunday I very happily bashed a pack of Tim Tams up with a rolling pin and made me some truffles!
I love Tim Tams and actually have a confession to make. There was a pack of Tim Tams in my hospital bag and they were the first thing I ate after the baby was born!
Into the freezer they went and half an hour later I melted some chocolate and made a complete mess trying to coat them in chocolate. It was lots of fun.
Given how tasty these truffles are and how easy they are to make I am definetly planning to box some of these up for Christmas presents. Possibly in origami gift boxes (if I do it - I'll be sure to post some pictures and instructions for folding the boxes - I made them for my wedding favours last year so hopefully I can still remember how to do it!)
So if you like truffles and you like Tim Tams I suggest heading over to Mrs Cake's blog to find the recipe :-)
For those of you in the UK I would suggest that Penguins are probably the closest things to Tim Tams if you want to give this recipe a try.
If I'm giving these as presents I think I need to get a lot more practice in to make them look pretty!
