Christmasy tim tam pops the super fast no bake way

I'm a bit behind on my Christmas cooking, I have so many great ideas and just not enough time.

If your a bit like me, check out this cheat's version of a tim tam pop, there's no mixing, it's really just a tim tam on a pop.

Ok well I did make the decorations from mini cookie cutters I bought from Little Betsy Baker.
But you could even buy the decorations ready made if you want, sooo cute and the kids could help stick them on too.

and to display them I bought this pop up RUSS Christmas Card, I picked it up from my local newsagent, just stick some clean styrofoam inside and maybe a little weight.

Or if your not into the whole cookies on a stick thing, they would be cute in a little box with a ribbon as a sweet little gift for someone.

Apologies to all those countries out there who don't get white Tim Tam's, you might be able to substitute a more local cookie.

Christmas Tim Tam pops

Equipment and Ingredients
8 inch cookie pop/ lollipop sticks (make sure you do not get the thick Wilton ones)
Metal skewer
packet of white tim tams
little melted chocolate or candy melts
microwave safe dish
fondant or royal icing decorations

Using the metal skewer make a hole in the center base of each tim tam as per picture.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave on short bursts at med low until smooth.

Dip the end of each cookie stick/ lollipop stick into the melted chocolate and then carefully push into the hole you have made in the Tim Tam.

Pop onto tray and repeat with remaining Tim Tam's. If you are adding decorations pop them onto the Tim Tams using the remaining melted chocolate.

If necessary refrigerate a few mins until chocolate is firm.
