I really love the way this dessert stand came out. The light blue color of the plates pairs so well with the navy blue tiny bows. I know this stand will make a few appearances on my dining table this year. During a recent trip to Target, I picked up two varieties of Tim Tams: Caramel and Dark Chocolate!

Before I loaded my dessert stand with Tim Tams, I had to try some of them. The Dark Chocolate variety features smooth cream, crunchy biscuits and a rich, dark chocolaty coating.

The Caramel variety is also a tasty treat! It features gooey caramel, crunchy biscuits and a milk chocolaty coating.

Did you know that Tim Tams have a pretty big fan base? Have you ever heard of the Tim Tam Slam, which is supposedly the best way to enjoy one of these biscuits? Simply bite off opposite corners of the biscuit, use it as a straw to drink a hot beverage (coffee, hot chocolate, etc.) and then pop the whole treat into your mouth! I have tried the Tim Tam Slam and I can personally confirm that this was the richest, most chocolaty bite I ever took! I am definitely a fan of the Tim Tam Slam!

Look for Tim Tams in the cookie aisle of your local Target store and experience for yourself the incredible taste of Australia’s favorite treat!
