Tim Tam Truffles

tim tam 2

Recipes for Tim Tam Truffles do the rounds every Australia Day.

Some people dip their truffles in melted chocolate before rolling them in coconut, but I don’t think they really need the additional chocolate. Making the truffles without the chocolate is also more budget-friendly.

2 packets of Tim Tams, any flavour, crushed.

250gm cream cheese, softened

1/2 Cup coconut (approximately, you may need a little more).

Crush the Tim Tams finely, then mix in with the cream cheese. Refrigerate for half an hour.

Roll the mixture into teaspoon sized balls, then roll in coconut and refrigerate.

  1. What on earth is a Tim Tam?? And everything needs extra chocolate…

    • Tim Tams are an Australian icon! They are two layers of biscuits slathered in chocolate. A ‘Tim Tam Slam’ is when you bite off the diagonal cornets and suck a hot drink through your Tim Tam, which sounds disgusting but is one of the joys of life!
