Tim Tam Cheesecake

Who doesn’t like Tim Tams?  They are a wonderful biscuit and when used to make a cheesecake, you are simply in Tim Tam heaven!

With a base of crushed Tim Tams, a cream cheese filling combining white and dark chocolate, surrounded by a wall of Tim Tams, topped with crumbled flake, you really only need a small slice.….maybe?

It is an easy to make cake that produces a very special and stunning looking cheesecake. This is a very rich cake, so fortunately the Tim Tam wall helps to decide the size of your slice….unless you double up.  You know you want to!
