With the impending demise of Hostess, tens of thousands of people are rushing to the fast-emptying Hostess stores to stock up on the last few remaining boxes of Twinkies, Cupcakes and Sno-Balls.
(See my earlier posts on the ongoing snack cake Armageddon: Let the Twinkie eBay frenzy begin!, Sad photos of the day..., and Ding Dong, the brand is dead.)
But how about an easier, more fun solution? Learn to make your favorite Hostess treat at home! Thanks to the good folks over at Mother Nature Network, I've found recipes that very closely match Twinkies, Cupcakes and Sno-Balls.
By the way, to make Twinkies, you will need to buy a Twinkie pan. Amazon sells a "Cream Canoe Pan" that will work well. Click "read more" for all three recipes. And if you try one (or more) of them, let me know how they turned out.
