When I received The Twinkies Cookbook I was a little surprised at how small it was (7.5? x 7.5? book with 114 including the index). Glancing through the pages many of the recipes are what I expected to see, while others have me curious to read further. This Twinkies 85th Anniversary Edition cookbook is divided into 7 chapters (Cake, Pie, Fruit, Chocolate, Cream, Meat, and Novelty).
There’s a decent amount of pictures, which had my mouth watering. My tongue could just taste that moist, spongy cake with the cream hidden inside. The Twinkie Toast Pie on p. 32-33, as well as the Frozen Yogurt Twinkie Pop on p. 84 sound interesting. The Chicken-Raspberry Twinkie Salad (p. 88-89) just doesn’t sound appetizing in the least, but I may just have to try it anyway. Deep_Fried Bacon_Wrapped Chocolate-Covered Twinkies (p. 96-97) sounds like a heart attack on a plate, but still has me curious. While the Twinkie Tunnel Bundt Cake (p. 20-21) looks super easy and quite tasty.
This cookbook that has mixed reviews, but I think it’s always interesting to see recipes that include ready-made items. I’m anxious to give some of these recipes a try and I’ll let you know how it turns out.
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
