i used a packet of original tim tams for the biscuit base (as suggested by kerryanne) which you simply whiz up then add 80grms of cream cheese and whiz again. roll into balls and chill for an hour or two before dipping in chocolate. the lovely kerryanne double dipped hers to look like christmas puddings and they look so cute. for now i have just coated mine in milk chocoate as i realised i had nothing red to adorn the top of them with so the white chocolate topping will have to wait until i do!

outcome: ok these looked too good not to be tasted, so we did ... and then we ALL went back for another! shame there is no longer enough for taking across the road on saturday. not to worry, they are so easy to make i will buy another packet of tim tams and make some more! if you are in need of something quick and easy to take to a christmas party, i can definitely recommend these, but maybe buy two packets and double the recipe so you can be sure to taste them ;)
many thanks to kerryanne at shabby art boutique for a very simple christmas recipe that really does help put the home made back into the holidays, as this recipe is neither time consuming or stressful and i so appreciate both those things at this time of the year :)
