Tim Tam truffles. Tim Tam truffles. Sounds good, doesn't it? Kinda rolls off the tongue, don'tcha think? Kinda like Becca Bakes, one might say... Only in the UK, these chocolate, chocolate sandwiched and covered biscuits aren't called Tim Tams. Oh no, they're not as mighty, not as tasty (to me anyway) and not called Tim Tams. They're called Penguins. Yep, seriously. And Penguin truffles just sounds a little bit wrong to me.
I found the recipe on an Australian site called Best Recipes, along with the one I used for the first school bake class, for Anzac biscuits. It's here, and it's wrong. Mind you, that's rather blunt, and disrespectful. Most unlike me. I should be more polite, and say that I couldn't get it to work at the quantities specified. That may well be because Penguins aren't the same as Tim Tams. But either way, I had to modify the recipe along the way.
