250g Tim Tams
250g cream cheese
2 tbs Nutella
150g dark chocolate, melted
Roast the hazelnuts in a 180C oven for about 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
Cool them, then blitz in a food processor till they become fine meal. Make sure you don't turn them into paste!
Put aside till you do the rolling.
Throw the biscuits into the processor and blitz till you have fine crumbs
Add the cream cheese and Nutella and blitz till combined
Spoon it into a bowl and place in the freezer for 20 minutes
Take it out and form into balls of whatever size you desire
Place back in the freezer for 15 minutes
Roll them in the hazelnut meal
Into the fridge they go
Melt the chocolate and cool for 5-10 minutes so it is still melted but not too warm
Spoon the chocolate over the tops of the balls
Back in the fridge to chill
Wrap in cellophane for gifting
I actually roasted and blitzed 200g of nuts so I have some ready for my next batch! I had bought one packet of biscuits not knowing they only come in 200 grams now so I had to rush off to the corner store to get more. But disaster, they had none. I bought some other sort of chocolate cream biscuits to make up the other 50 grams and it was fine. I certainly picked a crazy day to make these, as it was 31C and super humid. But it all worked out fine, and they are sitting happily in the fridge ready to be wrapped up and given to friends. I saw a recipe the other day for a Tim Tam layer cake; someone had made the comment that it looked great but what was a Tim Tam? I feel sad for those other countries that don't have Tim Tams on their shelves:)
