Yes you read that right. Today I'm posting about gourmet Twinkies. Say what you want, but Twinkies have always been one of my fav snacks. I have had every flavor offered, I've had them deep fried, dipped in chocolate, roasted over a camp fire *this is one of my favorite ways.* Twinkies ice cream, dipped in marshmallow whip. You name it *something that is actually real and Twinkies related.* and chances are I've had it. This recipe is next on my list.
*Actual Gourmet Twinkies recipe starts at 8:59.*
Prep Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 35 minutes
*Ensure there is NO trace of egg yolks in your whites and that your mixer bowl and whisk is completely grease free or your meringue won't stiffen.
** The buttercream may look like it's curdled at some point. Keep mixing until it is completely smooth.
*** You will likely have some leftover ganache.
