If you're a chocolate lover try dipping frozen Twinkies in chocolate candy coating and let the dry completely before dipping them into the batter. You can get as creative as you like with them. I like the just fried and nothing else on them. You can even make a glaze of powdered sugar and lemon juice for a fresh lemon taste!

    When the coating is golden brown on both sides remove and let drain on a paper towel. You can now sprinkle the with powdered sugar if you like or drizzle with chocolate or your choice of topping flavor. You can also use cinnamon and sugar to get a snickerdoodle like taste. Have fun and enjoy!
