Ooooh! That sounds so fun AND yummy, Koralee! I don't think I've ever seen Tim Tams...I'll have to keep my eyes open!

You have such a knack for sharing the most wonderful, fun, joyful, beautiful things, dear friend...thank-you for the loveliness you bring to Blogland!

So you have Tim Tams in Canada as well? They are probably New Zealand's most favorite biscuits!

Ciao

a friend & I were talking about it the other day when my 3 year old was dunking tim tams into his hot chocolate.

happy day to you sweet Koralee ♥

Catherine said...

Koralee ~ if you only knew how much I am craving something yummy ~ this photo has done me in. I now have to go into the kitchen and find something of which nothing is going to taste as good as this looks!

Never had a Tim Tam but I wish I knew where I could get one!!!

I'm so glad tim tam slams have reached the US!! They are the best thing ever!!!

i.ikeda said...

That sounds just too good! I've never even heard of Arnott's TimTam... I've been missing out apparently. Oh, the deprivation I've been living with!

I've already given myself some fun by coming here today. But I'll be sure to add some more too. Hope you're having as much fun as these pictures suggest. Xoxo

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I've read about these before and they look so good...but they certainly aren't available anywhere that I've seen around here. Enjoy! I guess we have to stick to Oreos for our dunking:(

Rizzi said...

THEY DO LOOK DELICIOUS, NEVER SAW THEM IN NJ, WILL HAVE TO LOOK AROUND. YOUR POST TODAY IS ADORABLE, AND SOOOOOO YUMMY. RIZZI

Maria said...

MMmmmm Tim Tams... wonder if we have them here in NY? I do this with the spicy windmill cookies dunked in my tea!
Something to make us smile on rainy afternoons!
Heading over to my coffeemaker ~ I have some nice hazelnut coffee waiting for some milk froth :o)
I love that sweet tablecloth / place mat with the tiny roses.
Enjoy your afternoon, Koralee*

Yes! I've had that! I had visitors come from New Zealand and they brought the cookies and had me make hot cocoa and we did it and it was yummmMMmmmy!! I need some double dipped TimTams! :-) I hope you come see my flowers I just posted today! Hugs, Teresa :-)

bibbitybob said...

I've just stumbled across your blog and I love it! Your photography is so cute! I've never heard of a TimTam but they look like Penguin biscuits we have over here in the UK...yum x

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

YUMMALICIOUS!!!! Not only does this sound GOOD, the pictures with the PINK and the CHOCOLATE BROWN really make this a MUST-TASTE!

HOW was your day back to work dearest? Any sunshine? You know, for us teachers, I think it is GOOD that the time seems to fly so quickly, because we have NO TIME to get bored!!! I cannot believe that I only have 3 weeks left until FREEDOM!!! I am also taking ONE CHUNK OF WORK at a time and organizing my priorities and that is the only way to survive. Oh, how I long to just take a walk in the sun and go outside and just play....I hope you will be able to do more of that precious!

I wish you a beautiful and SMILE-FILLED DAY!!!!! Anita

Mademoiselle Poirot said...

This sounds like a great guilty pleasure - very yummy! I just haven't ever heard of those sweets which means I will have to do some serious (yeah right) research into it ;-) xo

Padgett Hoke said...

Thank you for stopping by my little site and saying hello! I am so glad you like the chandelier - I do hope you make it, and share - it was totally worth it in the end! And no, I haven't tried the tim tam slam, but when I studied abroad in Australia I ate so many tim tams, they were my favorite! Kindest, Padgett

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh sweet one,

I can smell those lovely LILAC you have sent over to me; they too are my favorite and the neighbor's lilac tree is hanging over our fence and I welcome the scent...it was another PRODUCTIVE DAY...I do well actually, under pressure because my OBJECTIVES become real clear! I just crave quiet, however! I hope that you day was lovely and that your back eased a bit on the pain. My students are learning SO much about writing this year. I hope they will continue in their academic careers to write and think and dream in order to use the tools of writing. Well my sweet, it is on 7:00pm here and I am feeling so relaxed after having worked hard today; I am sure you are feeling the calm now too. May you have a blessed evening of sweetness and happiness in your home, and yes, isn't that photo with the BREAD AND THE HONEY SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE??? Such a yummy treat!

BISES, Anita

Draffin Bears said...
