Calling all you Twinkie lovers.

Now that Twinkies have firmly found a place on store shelves following the great Twinkie scare of 2012 when Hostess Brands filed for bankruptcy and halted the production of the icon treat, it's time to get baking. 

Hostess Brands, L.L.C. is encouraging people to submit their own Twinkies-inspired recipes for a chance to be included in the new edition of The Twinkies Cookbook.

“On average, Hostess has produced 500 million Twinkies annually, but since returning to shelves last July, demand has been tremendous, pushing us past that milestone faster than ever,” said William Toler, president and chief executive officer at Hostess Brands, L.L.C. “This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate America’s renewed love affair with Twinkies by creating a comeback edition of ‘The Twinkie Cookbook’ and inviting fans to be part of the next chapter of Twinkies history.”

The coolest part is that you may have your recipe in the cookbook --billed as the comeback edition.  All you have to do is visit the website and submit your recipe by July 31.   

Now that she's got no show, Paula Deen may have some time to submit her Twinkie Pie recipe--then again, she's working on her comeback too.
