Twinkie Tiramisu

i'm gonna try this recipe this weekend. a dear friend is visiting from ireland this weekend, so i wanted to treat him to a good american meal, and figured on a cookout. we're gonna grill some shrimp, steaks, chicken, corn and pound a few bud and coors'.

but for dessert, i was trying to think of something new and tasty, that i could accomplish, and i remembered this recipe i saw once. what is more american than a twinkie?

TWINKIE TIRAMISU

Ingredients:

1 box of Twinkies (10)
16 oz of Ricotta cheese
8 oz of Mascarpone cheese
1 lb of Powdered Sugar
2 oz of Dark Rum
6 oz of Kahlua
1 Hershey's Chocolate Bar (milk or dark
chocolate)
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

Method:

Line a 9" x 13" x 3" pan (or similar size)
with Twinkies. Distribute for even coverage.
Drizzle Twinkies with Kahlua and let them
soak.

Next, combine Ricotta and Marscapone with a
large spoon until smooth. Slowly begin to
add Powdered Sugar (reserve 1/8th package of
sugar for garnish) and whisk until mixture
is smooth but heavy. Add Dark Rum and
continue to whisk until fully combined and
mixture is fuller and lighter. Taste mixture
for desired sweetness (do not add more rum
or Tiramisu will not set properly).

Pour cheese mixture evenly over Twinkies in
pan, use a soft spatula to smooth mixture
and distribute in-between Twinkies and into
corners. Cover and place pan in refrigerator
for four hours to set.

To finish, sprinkle Cocoa Powder liberally
over top of Tiramisu. Then grate Chocolate
Bar and drizzle shavings over the top as
well. To serve, cut into pieces and dust
with powdered sugar. Enjoy!

For something different, try Frozen Twinkie
Tiramisu by freezing overnight (just
remember to cut pieces out with a hot,
butter knife) it's decadent!
