This one might be the most evil dessert I’ve made yet. But who says evil has to be bad???

Twinkie Tiramisu (Serves 8)

Original Recipe: All You, September 2009

  • 3 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces whipped cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 10  Twinkies, halved lengthwise
  • 4 ounces finely chopped semisweet chocolate
  1. Place espresso powder and 1/2 cup sugar in a heatproof bowl. Pour 1 cup boiling water into bowl and whisk to dissolve. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine cream cheese, vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. In another large bowl, beat heavy cream until it holds stiff peaks. Gently fold cream cheese mixture into whipped cream.
  3. One at a time, dip 10 Twinkie halves into coffee mixture just to moisten. Place them alongside each other in bottom of a shallow 11-by-7-inch baking dish. Spread half of cream cheese mixture over Twinkies, then sprinkle with 2 oz. chopped chocolate. Repeat with remaining Twinkies, cream cheese mixture and chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.

Yes, it’s as wonderfully decadent as it looks. :)

Last night’s dinner was some leftover meatballs that my friend Tammy brought to my swap party that I added to some egg noodles. I made a salad to get some greens in.

Since I was so good about adding vegetables to my dinner, I felt it would be ok to have some Twinkie Tiramisu.

It was more than just ok. :)

Breakfast today was the return of the egg beater sandwich. This time I added some avocado to it.

I took the kids to school and went to Zumba.

For lunch I met some friends at Love Boat Sushi. I haven’t had sushi in way too long!

Normally you see pictures of me with wine. I thought I’d change things up and show you a picture of me with iced tea.

This roll is my personal favorite: the Wasabi Roll. It spicy and wonderful. I heart the plate they put it on. :)

We are off to my sister in law’s house for dinner tonight. Enjoy your evening!

When was the last time you ate a Twinkie?


  1. Seriously? Twinkie Tiramisu? Oh my gosh! I think I just gained 5 pounds from looking at it. BUt, it looks ooooohhh soooooo goooooood! YUM!

  2. Believe it or not, I grew up with the granddaughter of the inventor of the Twinkie - the first time I went over to her house and looked in her pantry and saw all those twinkies I nearly died and gone to heaven. She just said "yeah, my grandmpa keeps bringing those over."

    I am going out for sushi tonight!! It's only the fourth time since December that my husband and I have gone out to eat I am so excited!

  3. @Biz
    That's a good friend to have! :)
