The Phantom of the Opera is there...*ooh, where?*

Well- heck it sure does taste good and is super easy.

Ingredients- one cup of tea/ coffee/ hot choccy (a hot drink)
                 one (or more) chocolate biscuits

This is a twist on the traditional dunking biscuits!

I suggest using a thick chocolate biscuit (like a penguin- no not the anmal!)
Bite off one corner, then turn the biscuit upside down and bite off another corner.
Place the biscuit into the drink- suck on the biscuit until you taste liquid (or feel it as warm) then take the biccy out and eat.
If you've done it right the middle of the biscuit will have melted and you'll have a biteful (or two) of melted choccy heaven. Enjoy!

Not really.  It's about the same as unscrewing an Oreo to lick the filling.  Anyway, I prefer a cold beverage to dunk chocolate covered cookies in.  The chocolate gets crisp and the cookie gets nice and mushy.

An Oreo is the most popular cookie in the US

biscotti? i think someone will have to fill me in.

They are dry, long shaped cookies that are twice baked (baked in a loaf, cut into slender slices, then baked again).  The specialty to these cookies is that they are scrumptuous dipped in coffee or tea.  I guess they're Italian coffee biscuits.

In America they are often dipped in chocolate on one side and the cookie batter can be flavored with all sorts of goodies!

These cookies are very popular in the US. I've got a basic recipe posted on my website.


Mmmmm you're right- I think its tea time!

Thats what you do with Tim Tams!  It works best with a chocolate covered, cream-filled biscuit so the insides melt.

when my friend from australia came to visit last year, we did this with tim-tams and milo. the most delicious thing EVER. now i just wish tim-tams and milo weren't outrageously expensive in oregon... sigh.
