Feeling a little ‘extra’ and want an epic dessert without barely lifting a finger? We give you the ultimate air fryer Tim Tam dessert…

I like to think we’ve mastered the air frying basics. We’ve cooked delicious whole chickens and we’ve even nailed how to cook the perfect steak but I’m always keen to try something new. And if this Tim Tam dessert is being dubbed a viral sensation on social media, then I want to try that!

There’s practically NOTHING to this dessert. It essentially uses just two ingredients to make and is ready in next to no time. If you want to be fancy, use a fancier Tim Tam variety, add a scoop of ice cream and a Matt Preston sprinkle of icing sugar. Voila!

So without further ado, I give you the air fried Tim Tam pastry slam dessert. Yep. It’s EVERYTHING you think it will be and more.

How’s that for an easy peasy, no fuss, mighty delicious Tim Tam dessert?

TIP: You get 11 biscuits in the original and dark Tim Tam varieties – one more than in the ‘crafted’ flavourings. Just saying.
