Did you know that, on average, Hostess has produced 500 million Twinkies per year? Of course, since returning to the shelves last year, he demand has pushed that milestone faster than ever, according to William Toler, President and CEO of Hostess Brands, LLC. For families everywhere, Twinkies might mean a forbidden snack, a lunch box treat, or an after-school reward. For our household, it means adding a few extra ingredients to make our favorite dessert, Twinkie Tiramisu!

Tiramisu can be a difficult dessert to make, but we’ve found a way to simplify this coffee-flavored Italian decadence. Actually, our friends at Hostess are looking for recipes just like ours for the new edition of The Twinkies Cookbook! To submit your recipe idea, Hostess fans can visit their site and submit their recipe until July 31st, 2014. From the recipes received, a collection will be chosen for the comeback edition of The Twinkies Cookbook!

Twinkie Tiramisu
In a heat safe bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of Espresso powder (found in the coffee aisle) and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar. Pour in 1+1/4 cup of boiling water and whisk. Make sure that you whisk really well to ensure that the Espresso powder and sugar are completely dissolved. Leave out so that the Espresso cools to room temperature, whisking occasionally.

Once the Espresso mixture has cooled to room temperature, whip 1+1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream until you get stiff peaks. Add one pound (16oz) of Mascarpone cheese to a bowl and gently fold in the whipped cream until well blended.

Now, the star of our dish comes in! Get a 10-count box of Hostess Twinkies and get ready for the fun part. Take each out of the packages and cut them in half lengthwise. You’ll need the whole box for an 8×8 pan (or you can double for a larger pan for a party – or a hefty sweet tooth). Dip each half in the Espresso mixture just long enough to absorb the coffee and be soaked, but not so long that it breaks apart – about 10 seconds.

Lay them in a single layer in your dish and cover with half of your whipped cream/Mascarpone cheese mixture. Sprinkle with semi-sweet chocolate shavings and repeat for a second layer of deliciousness.
