The Tim Tam Slam
This ritual treat was introduced to the mission by Elder Holman. Tim Tams are an imported cookie here in South Africa so they are hard to find and expensive. The missionaries love this but can't do this very often because of the cost.
You take a Tim Tam (a chocolate covered wafer cookie) and bite off opposite corners as shown in the picture. Put one corner in the hot chocolate and suck on the other corner like you were sucking on a straw. When you feel the hot chocolate coming through you quickly pop the entire cookie into your mouth. By now the cookies will have started to melt from the hot chocolate and form a gooey chocolaty yummy mess in your mouth. If you wait too long to pop it into your mouth it will fall apart and will fall into your cup of hot chocolate. The hot chocolate needs to be hot for this to work. If you let it cool off too much the interior of the cookies won't melt. You need to be careful that you don't burn your tongue so find the right temperature.
Elder Holman told me that you might be able to find Tim Tams at World Market in the United States. It may be possible to do this with other wafer cookies or candy bars. Some one told me that Twix will work but are not as good.
