Short And Sweet. Twinkie Tiramisu.

I saw this recipe the other day and knew I had to make it immediately.

Alas, Twinkie Trouble once again. When I made Minion Cupcakes I wrote about how difficult it was to find Twinkies in the area that I live in. Not any easier this time.

I was finally successful at a small gas station mini mart about 30 minutes away. No Twinkies, but Mrs. Freshley’s was close enough.

At least I know if Hostess goes out of business there will still be Minions and this very easy Twinkie Tiramisu (somehow, Mrs. Freshley’s Tiramisu does not conjure up quite as delicious an image).

And delicious this dessert is. It is very simple to put together with only a few ingredients. Chill to firm up and then dig in.

Sweet.

Twinkie Tiramisu

Ingredients:

10 Twinkies
Chocolate syrup (about a cup)
12 oz tub Whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar (Original recipe calls for 1/2 cup, but half the amount was sweet enough for me)
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 oz tub Cool Whip
Cocoa powder to garnish

Directions:

1. Line an 8×8 pan with plastic wrap and set aside.

2. Using a mixer, whip cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together until combined, about a minute. Gently fold in Cool Whip until combined.

3. Split Twinkies vertically and lay them across the bottom of the pan (with 5 whole Twinkies which is 10 halves), cream side up.

4. Pour chocolate sauce over the surface of the Twinkies to cover, but not too thick.

5. Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over the chocolate.

6. Repeat with another layer of Twinkies, chocolate, and cream. Dust the top with cocoa powder.

7. Chill for several hours. Use plastic wrap to remove Tiramisu from pan and transfer to a serving platter.

    So Price Chopper/Shaws/Hannafords do not carry Twinkies? Have you tried the Freihofer Bakery Outlet, too?

    • Price Chopper had Twinkies last time I needed them, but it is on the “wrong” side of West Leb (I have no patience). Now that Borders is gone I never go down there. I didn’t think of the others you recommended…Thanks! I will keep them in mind.

      I didn’t even know there was a Freihofer Bakery Outlet. Sounds good. Where is that located?

      • Deirdre says:

        Sorry for the delay…there is another Price Chopper at exit 19 in Leb–not as crowded as 12A and better traffic. The bakery outlet is also off exit 19, but head toward downtown Leb. It’s on the right just after Jakes Market and Vivo Day Spa. We eat a lot of sandwiches, so I go there a lot. Watch the expiration dates!
