Does the Imminent Collapse of Our Economy Have you Blue?

Then try one of Greazy and Inky's special Tim Tam Slam Sunday's and turn that look of terror and shock upside down! While enjoying our Tim Tams a few months back, I mentioned how much I'd like to take the Aussie cookie to Dairy Queen and have a Tim Tam Blizzard made. While that sounded delicious, it took Inky's inventiveness to take it to a whole new level.

She rightly pointed out that a Tim Tam is never as good as when a hot liquid is drawn succulently through it, into the mouth. When said cookie is "slammed" the cookie part collapses (like the housing market, but more delectably and with less ruination) and the chocolate coating gets all melty. The cookie tastes different when in this state, and it would not be a stretch to say that it is bordering on heavenly.

So Inky got her proverbial peanut butter in my chocolate and the result was this amazing sunday. After preparing a base of Hagan Dazs vanilla bean, we slammed three Tim Tams in succession, laying the melty cookie on the frozen foundation. The cold of the ice cream cause portions of the melty cookie to reconstitute, kind of like that Magic Shell crap that was so popular in the 80's. The gooey cookie insides also sucked up the liquid ice cream, much in the fashion of a brownie sunday.

Hot and cold working together. The stark white of the ice cream, the dark loveliness of the Tim Tams all coming together to make me feel better. All that was missing was a few dollops of whipped cream and a cherry which may have brought me to the brink of full body orgasm.

If you have the means, I highly recommend getting one. They're so choice!

They sound delicious but that picture looks like a turd on top of some ice cream. Maybe we can have that for desert when I come up for the Grand Final. I'll bring the Tim Tams if you bring the ice cream!
