With this recipe from MyRecipes.com, Twinkies make quick work on this classic dessert. 

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoon instant espresso powder
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • 8 Ounce whipped cream cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 10 vanilla Twinkies, halved lengthwise
  • 4 Ounce finely chopped semisweet chocolate

Preparation

Step 1:

Place espresso powder and 1/2 cup sugar in a heatproof bowl. Pour 1 cup boiling water into bowl and whisk to dissolve. Let cool to room temperature.

Step 2:

Combine cream cheese, vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup 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.

Step 3:

One at a time, dip 10 Twinkie halves into coffee mixture just to moisten. Place them alongside each other in bottom of a shallow 11-by-7-inch baking dish. Spread half of cream cheese mixture over Twinkies, then sprinkle with 2 oz. chopped chocolate. 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.
