Twinkie Tiramisu

Author: Mrs Happy Homemaker

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup strong coffee
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups of heavy cream beaten until stiff peaks form (making homemade whipped cream)
  • 10-12 Twinkies halved lengthwise

Instructions

  • Combine the water & the ½ sugar in a small saucepan & bring to a boil.
  • Add in the coffee once the sugar has been dissolved. Set aside to bring it to room temperature
  • Beat the cream cheese, ⅓ cup sugar, & vanilla extract until creamy. Gently fold in the fresh whipped cream.
  • Dip half of the twinkie halves into the coffee syrup & then lay them in a 2 quart dish, cream side up. Don’t over saturate them...just a quick dunk will do. Spread half of the cream on top - then dip the other half of the twinkies in the coffee syrup & put them on top of the cream. Finish with the rest of the cream & garnish with grated chocolate if desired.
