This, my friends, is what a whole pack of Tim Tams combined with fudgy brownies looks like – my ultimate, fudgy Tim Tam Brownies. Don’t worry though. If you can’t get Tim Tams where you are, any filled biscuit / cookie, especially those covered in chocolate will work. Penguins, oreos – they all work.
So, who doesn’t love a Tim Tam? In Australia, they’re the ultimate biscuit to have with a cuppa. Even dunked in a cuppa, used as a straw to slurp it through – Tim Tam Slam, baby. Yeah! If you haven’t tried it, do it today! Ahem, moving on.
This recipe has been on the blog for a while now but needed an update, new photos, a more simplified recipe and a few tips so you can easily create these perfect fudgy, crunchy-topped brownies at home.
Why this Tim Tam Brownies recipe works
- The sugar is beaten really well with the eggs first until super light and fluffy. This step makes that perfect crisp top we all love on brownies.
- I only use ½ cup of flour in this recipe which helps them get nice and fudgy.
- Combination of melted butter and chocolate adds to the fudginess but also keeps them soft and tender.
Easy to make brownies
I specifically set myself a target with this recipe to make them even easier and here’s how I did it:
- Sugar / Flour: This recipe uses only white sugar (as opposed to the combo of white and brown I would normally use). While the brown sugar normally adds some moisture, it’s not needed in this recipe due to a lower amount of flour.
- Cocoa: I’ve also skipped my favourite dutch processed cocoa in favour of regular unsweetened cocoa. Most everyone has regular cocoa in the pantry but not always the dutched version. The two are interchangeable in this recipe so use whichever you have on hand.
Let the brownies cool completely to room temperature before cutting into them. Once they’re sliced, they’re best served at room temperature or warmed up with a dollop of ice cream on top.
Do I have to use Tim Tams?
If you can’t get Tim Tams, while I feel bad for you, you can still make these brownies. You could easily turn these into Oreo brownies or for that matter, use any filled cookie. If it’s chocolate coated, even better.
If you can get Tim Tams, rejoice and pick whichever flavour you love most. I’m a Double Coat person myself.
Half a pack of Tim Tams are used inside and another half on top. Chop them roughly but not too small.
How to store brownies
These brownies store well at room temperature or in the fridge, in an airtight container for 5-6 days.
You can freeze these brownies for up to 3 months as well. Wrap them in plastic wrap or bag them before placing them inside an airtight container.
