    paper, extending paper 2cm above edge of pan. Line side of pan with Tim Tams.
  2. Process remaining Tim Tams in a food processor until finely crushed. Add butter, process until
    combined. Press evenly over base of prepared pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.

    Beat in cooled melted white chocolate. Mixture may look curdled. Continue to beat until
    smooth. Fold in cream until just combined.
  4. Transfer one-third of the mixture into a separate bowl. Fold cooled melted dark chocolate
    into larger amount of mixture until just combined.
  5. Spoon white and dark chocolate mixtures alternately into prepared pan. Smooth over top.
