This actually turned out really well because I was keen to make these - they sounded delicious, it was an excuse to use my new mixer (more on that later), and most importantly, I wanted to make something to give my lovely friend Liz as part of her birthday present!
* Freeze the balls you're coating first
* Put the chocolate in a mug or something easy to dip into
* Make sure the chocolate isn't too hot
* Put the balls on skewers or something similar and dip into the chocolate
* Don't be concerned about the coating being too thin, just go back for a second coating
Some great tips to remember (and the same applies to cake pops as well!)
Overall I think these went really well - they're very rich so you can't eat many at a time but very delicious - and most importantly I think Liz liked them so a good birthday present :)
RECIPE - Yields about 20 balls
1 packet Tim Tams
250g packet Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
375g packet chocolate bits, for coating
1. Crush the Tim Tams; I pop them in the blender but you could also hand crush or use a mixer.
2. Mix the crushed Tim Tams and the softened philly in your mixer for a few minutes, until mixed well.
3. Roll mixture into balls. Freeze.
4. Melt the chocolate bits in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring thoroughly between. Once fully melted, allow to cool.
5. Once chocolate is cool, remove balls from the freezer and coat with chocolate.
6. Refrigerate until chocolate is set.
