Can you believe are about to enter December? Holiday entertaining and dining are two of the best things that the season has to offer. We entertain guests throughout the year, but find ourselves almost overbooked with events, dinner parties and gatherings prior to Christmas. I never want to stress during the holiday season and while I prefer baking I also don’t have time to bake for hours on end.
This year I have a new cake I will be serving guests and bringing to holiday parties- a simple Tim Tam chocolate cake! I’m unbelievably proud of this simple cake. I’ve enjoyed Tim Tams for awhile now and adding them to a double chocolate cake was one of my better ideas. Grab the recipe details below and don’t let the photos fool you, this recipe is easy peasy!
Simple Tim Tam Chocolate Cake
Tim Tam (I used original and caramel, use any combination of your liking)
Chocolate cake mix
Bake cake as directed in 2 round pans
Allow cakes to cool to room temperature
Place 1 round cake on a cake plate or serving dish
Coat cake with chocolate icing (one entire container of icing is suggested)
Place Tim Tams across the entire cake
Crumble the second round cake and sprinkle it over the top making a small cake mound
Add additional Tim Tams across the entire cake
Drizzle chocolate syrup over the entire cake
Serve and enjoy
Not only are these chocolaty treats great to add to recipes they’re perfect for gift giving too! This year I plan to hand out a few packs to my favorites. You can find the Original Chocolate Creme, Caramel, Dark Chocolate and Dark Mint currently at Target. I think everyone would appreciate one of these boxes in their stockings this year.
Some awesome news, friends: when you use Cartwheel you get 10% off!
So what recipe will you be adding Tim Tams to and which flavor option will you choose this holiday season? They pair with coffee perfectly! If you go with my simple cake recipe you’ll make your friends and family happy, promise.
