In case you don't know Tim Tam is possibly New Zealand most popular biscuit. I like the idea of a biscuit sandwich with chocolate, but I wanted a 'lighter' version, homemade. I set to work with my 10 years old Max, using as the base some plain water thin crackers (my favourites!). In the centre we just put some hazelnut chocolate spread (you can find Vegan chocolate spread in health food shops) and then we made little biscuit sandwiches. We placed the 'sandwiches' in the freezer for 30 minutes, then we dropped them in melted dark (72%) chocolate (once again, if you are vegan look for vegan dark chocolate). Max loves dark chocolate but found dipping the biscuits in the hot stuff a bit too hard, so he took the photos for this step. Let the chocolate set at room temperature and then, if it is a hot day, store the biscuits in the fridge.
The verdict? This is too easy, and too tasty to be allowed!!!!
