Are you tired of me making stuff with Twinkies yet?
If you said yes, we are not friends anymore.
(Just kidding, we still are)
I’ve been trying to figure out what this obsession is with me and Twinkies, and I think I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s because I was deprived as a child.
I mostly grew up on Little Debbie Fudge Rounds and Oatmeal Cream Pies, not that there is anything wrong with that, but Hostess stuff was on like, a whole other level.
I always thought that rich people probably had boxes and boxes of Snoballs and Cupcakes and Twinkies and just looked at them and admired their beautiful packaging whenever they wanted.
So now that I’m a full grown up in charge of my own life, I always have a box or two of Hostess in the pantry. And honestly, my son could care less, he lives for Cosmic Brownies and nothing else.
I’ve broken the cycle of Hostess Deprivement, obviously. And now he can grow up un-Hostess obsessed and be normal and not compulsively make desserts out of Twinkies.
It’s too late.
So here’s another Twinkie treat!!
Remember the Mummy Twinkie Pops I made last week?
Just follow the same method for inserting the sticks and coating the Twinkies in melted candy.
Once the green candy has set, dip the top part of your Twinkie in melted chocolate coating (candy melts or almond bark) using a toothpick to pull it into “points” like hair before it sets.
Add liquorice pieces for the mouth, candy “eyes”, mini marshmallow “bolts”, and a green mini M&M “nose”.
