My Favorite Cookie Giveaway

I went out yesterday to try to get some Christmas shopping off my list, and with wake up calls the past couple mornings of 4:15 am and 5:15 am I knew just where I was going to head first...

Yes, Target! But to be more specific, the Starbucks inside of Target!  Brilliant idea whoever thought of putting a Starbucks in Target stores! After grabbing myself an eggnog latte, I spent the next couple hours meandering around Target and TJMaxx scooping up gifts for various family members and my Foodie Pen Pal that I get to send some goodies to next week!

One of my better purchases of the day to bring home to my man and I were these bad boys...

I absolutely LOVE Tim Tams!  I was introduced to these on the beaches of Australia back in the summer of 2009.  Never again will I ever like a cookie more than these. This isn't the true Australia brand, but the Americanized version of them are pretty darn close. Now these cookies aren't meant to just be shoved in your mouth, there is a specific way you should eat these... As taught by a true Aussie, here is how to eat a Tim Tam :)

Step 1: Make a cup of hot cocoa.
Step 2: Bite two corners off of the cookie, they should be opposite corners.  

Step 3: Put one of the bitten off corners into your hot coca. 
Step 4:  Suck the hot cocoa up through the other bitten off corner (like a straw).  
Step 5: Once you feel it start to cave in and melt a little take it out and eat it, it will MELT IN YOUR MOUTH!!! 

You can also use milk if you're not a hot cocoa fan, but it doesn't quite have the melt in your mouth sensation  as it does with hot cocoa.  I seriously recommend running sprinting teleporting to the nearest Target to pick up some of your very own Tim Tams OOOOOOOOR leave me a comment below about anything for a chance to win some of your very own.  I love them so much that I am willing to go to the store for you and send them to you :)  

Note: To enter you must be a US resident.  The contest will end Wednesday Dec. 14th at midnight.  I will randomly pick a winner on Thursday! 


December is typically a busy month for everyone, but here are some of the great things I have to look forward to this month (or already enjoyed)...

Dec. 9th- Bridesmaid (the movie) night with old co-workers
Dec. 11th- Christmas caroling with my family
Dec. 18th- Saints game vs. Vikings in Minnesota... Don't worry I'm not a Vikings fan ;)
Dec. 24th- Christmas with my boyfriend's family
Dec. 25th- Christmas with my family

I wasn't kidding when I said busy! What things are you looking forward to this month?


  1. this month i'm excited to see my sister! i haven't seen her since my wedding in august and i miss her so much. she's going to be home for over a week, so i'm planning to soak up lots of time with her. :)

  2. i'm looking forward to my son actually understanding christmas this year. the cookies look delicious! and i am very happy that you aren't going to the game as a Vikings fan :)

  3. Oh I love Tim Tams so much! They make a mint flavor that is just to die for. I like to put them in the freezer and then eat them, that's the tastiest!
