Cookie Crack Head

My lovely cousin Amy traveled all the way from Brisbane, Australia toting a suitcase full of danger.


 She skipped the gateway drugs of chocolate covered koala bits and krunchy kangaroo krisps and deliberately hooked me on

Tim Tams

Otherwise known as 
"cookie crack"


These chocolate covered chocolatey crispy chunks of creamy chocolate are, as they say in the outback  "Mighty good tucker mate and anyone but a dongo thinks they are fair dinkum".


This is how you mainline a Tim Tam Slam

 1.  Fill a shot glass with milk





2.  Nibble both ends off the cookie.  Whack yourself  on the noggin with a wooden spoon if you find yourself unable to stop.  It is perfectly acceptable to leave a glistening little drop of slobber on the end of the cookie




3.  Insert cookie in shot glass and suck milk through cookie/straw

 


4.  If you have done this correctly, Tim Tam will begin to collapse in an amalgam of  milk chocolatey deliciosity the likes of which will bring tears of gratitude to your eyes.




5.  Pour, nibble, slurp, repeat










You can find me hiding in the backyard mainlining at all hours of the day.

I'm getting a Tim Tam Tummy

That sounds awesome!

I'll put those little delicacies on the list for my culinary tour of the Antipodes.

our Australians have tried several times to get those to us and they never make it past post office or airport security! My theory is the people checking steal them for their own selfish pleasures! Not fair!

When I went to Australia, the Aussie's taught me this trick too! Except, they taught us to use hot chocolate rather than milk. It was SOOOOO yummy! I am always telling Ben that I want to figure out how to get some.

I find that candy from other countries makes me revert back to childhood. It was not pretty when I moved to Britain.

I want some. NOW. Although I don't know how you can sit in your backyard mainlining these chocolate treats. It was what... about 107 degrees every day this past week?!? I was quite damp and moist every minute of every day there, but had a great time. We're home tonight in a reasonable temp but I'm missing everyone mightily.

LOL. A tim tam tummy doesn't sound good, but the chocolate does.

Anita said...

OH my goodness those look good. We need something like that here!!

Hi. Thank you for stopping by my blog. You've already made me chuckle several times over here and I WANT A TIM TAM!! :)

I haven't seen these in my neck of the woods, which is a VERY GOOD thing. I don't need any more chocolate to add to my ADDICTIVE list! It looks so good my mouth is watering.
