My favourite thing…

My favourite thing about this tart is just how easy to make and delicious it is! I love Tim Tams and this tart puts them in the spotlight!

What are Tim Tams?

Tim Tams are an Australian biscuit. We call them biscuits here. Cookies that is… It’s covered in a thin layer of chocolate, a chocolate cookie, I mean biscuit and filled with chocolate cream. The beauty is, these come in loads of flavours. In this recipe I’ll be using Dark Chocolate Tim Tams and White Chocolate Mango Tim Tams.

What does this tart taste like?

Chocolate! This tart is perfect for Chocolate lovers. Can I make a confession? Years ago, when I made my first cookie recipe I read the ingredients and saw that it had salt in it. I was like, salt? UGH! YUK! But adding salt to desserts adds a really yummy depth of flavour. Like in savoury dishes, it elevates flavours in deserts too. Chocolate desserts are no exception. And the salt in the milk chocolate ganache makes this dessert so much tastier.

What you need for the tart

Crust

Tim Tams – I used dark chocolate Tim Tams for the crust.

 Unsalted butter – make sure your butter is cooled when it’s melted.

Milk Chocolate Ganache

Milk chocolate – I used cooking chocolate.

Heavy cream – This is the type of cream you use for whipping. It must have at least 30% fat content.

Unsalted butter – you can use salted butter but leave the salt out.

Vanilla extract – Use pure vanilla extract.

Salt – Any fine salt will work.

Dark Chocolate Ganache

Dark chocolate – I used dark cooking chocolate.

Heavy cream – Make sure this is the type of cream you use for whipping.

Unsalted butter – You can use salted butter if you wish.

Whipped Cream

Heavy cream – Use cream with at least 30% fat content.

Vanilla extract – Make sure you use pure vanilla extract. No imitation vanilla. It makes all the difference.

Decorations

Dark chocolate and mango tim tams – You can use any flavour you can find here!
