How to Make Twinkie Tiramisu

Step-by-Step

  1. Place espresso powder and 1/2 cup sugar in a heatproof bowl. Pour boiling water into bowl and whisk to dissolve. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine cream cheese, vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup of sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
    In another large bowl, beat heavy cream until it holds stiff peaks. Gently fold cream cheese mixture into whipped cream.
  3. One at a time, dip the Twinkies halves into coffee mixture just to moisten. Place them alongside each other in bottom of a shallow 11x 7-inch baking dish. Spread 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture over Twinkies, then sprinkle with 1/2 the chopped chocolate.
  4. Repeat with remaining Twinkies, cream cheese mixture and chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.
