When I was in my early 20′s I worked in the deli of a fine foods store and that was where I had my first Tim Tam.  If you have never had one you are missing out.  They are a chocolate dipped sandwich cookie from Australia.

And because I couldn’t leave them alone I decided on frosting.
And then dark chocolate glaze.

Ingredients

Tim Tam Stuffed Brownies
    • 1/2 c butter
    • 1/2 c cocoa powder
    • 1 c packed light brown sugar
    • 1 tsp instant espresso powder
    • 2 eggs – room temp
    • 1/2 c all purpose flour
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 15 Tim Tam Cookies (about 1 1/2 packages)
Chocolate Malt Buttercream
    • 1/2 c butter
    • 1/2 c Chocolate Malt Powder (I used Carnation but Milo or Ovaltine would work)
    • 2 1/2 c confectioners sugar
    • 2 tbs milk
Chocolate Glaze
  • 3 oz dark chocolate chopped
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp light corn syrup

Instructions

Brownies
    1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Move oven rack to the middle position. Line a 8×8 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. In a medium saucepan melt butter, add in cocoa, espresso powder and brown sugar. Stir until smooth.
    3. Let cool a couple minutes. Then add in your eggs and vanilla. Stir until just combined.
    4. Add flour and salt and stir with a spatula until no flour streaks remain.
    5. Place a thin layer of batter on the bottom of your prepared pan. Then layer your cookies on top.
    6. Pour the remaining batter over top of the cookies. Smooth out making sure the batter gets in between the cookies.
    7. Bake for 15-17 minutes until a toothpick comes out slightly wet. You don’t want to over bake.
    8. Place on a wire rack in the pan to cool.
Chocolate Malt Buttercream.
    1. In the bowl of a standing mixer beat butter for 3-5 minutes on medium speed, until fluffy.
    2. Add in your chocolate malt powder and mix until uniform in color.
    3. Sift in your confectioners sugar and then pour in your milk.
    4. Mix on low until the confectioners sugar is incorporated and then increase speed and mix until light and fluffy.
Chocolate Glaze.
    1. In a small microwavable bowl add in your chocolate, butter and corn syrup. Microwave on 50% power stirring every 30 second until smooth.
Assembly.
  1. Carefully remove the brownies from the pan and then scoop all the frosting on top. Smooth out frosting and then pour the glaze over top. If your glaze is still warm pop your frosted brownies in the freezer for a couple minutes so the glaze doesn’t melt the frosting.
  2. The easiest way to make the design is to put the glaze in a squeeze bottle and pour over top.
  3. Cut into 2 inch squares and enjoy.
  4. Also freezes well.
