Tim Tam Slam Ice Cream

A few months ago, I heard about the existence of a bike ride called the Tam Slam. For obvious reasons, this got me thinking of Tim Tam Slams. If you’re not familiar, a Tim Tam Slam is when you take a Tim Tam (rectangular, chocolate covered Australian cookie), bite off opposite corners, and then use it like a straw to drink hot chocolate until the heat of the hot chocolate melts the cookie. It’s delightful! By the time I got some Tim Tams and was ready to do something with them, however, it was a bit warm for hot chocolate, so I’ve tried to recreate the experience in a more summer-appropriate form. It turns out quite nicely!

Combine the marshmallows and half-and-half in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the marshmallows completely dissolve.

This was the last thing my hand mixer will ever mix. RIP

Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker, freezing according to its directions. When the mixture is just about frozen, add the chocolate syrup and Tim Tam pieces, and let churn until well mixed.
