My Hubby said an RV Buddy sent him this recipe and he wants me to make it for him....OK.

Much to my amazement, this was good!

So I thought maybe some of you all would like to make it too.

I finally got my photos downloaded and posted on here...all pix are mine.

Method:

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

1 1/2 box
twinkies (about 15)
1 large
box strawberry jello
1 large
box instant vanilla pudding
2 c
whipped cream-or-cool whip (more if you like, and we do)

(IF USING COOL WHIP, I ADD A BIT OF SUGAR AND VANILLA WHIPPED INTO IT; MAKES IT TASTE MORE LIKE HOMEMADE)

''NOW START''

LINE 9"X13" CAKE PAN WITH THE TWINKIES

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix Jello with 2 cups hot water.
Stir until completely dissolved, then pour in 1 cup "very cold" water (or use strawberry soda).
Pour over Twinkies (already in pan) and put in the refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

NOTE:
Let me tell you here, I would let the Jell-O on the twinkies set up in the frig longer than the 30 min's suggested, before adding the other layers.

I was even thinking about letting the Jell-O set up some, then pushing the twinkies down into it, before starting to build the other layers.

It stayed just a little "wetter" than we liked.
2
Mix the vanilla pudding as directed (I use the shaker method).
Spread over the set Twinkie mixture.
3
Top with whipped cream or cool whip.
Put back in the refrigerate until set or until ready to serve.

NOTES: for alterations
Substitute pound cake or loaf style angel food cake for the Twinkies (cut into slices).

Spread 2 cups fresh or frozen (defrosted) sliced strawberries over the Twinkies/cake slices, then pour on the Jello.

Now finish with rest of the directions right above.

Also, you can cut this down by using less Twinkie cakes and make it in a 9"x9" square pan....just don't forget to ♥START WITH YOUR TWINKIE LAYER♥
