Recently I've had an opportunity to go back and improve the recipe for the Hostess Twinkie clone found on page 47 of the first book, Top Secret Recipes and here on the website. Specifically, I wanted to make the creme filling more stable, using non-dairy ingredients like the original product, so that it was shelf-stable and easier to make. Here now, is the much improved recipe, using fewer ingredients than the original clone, and with marshmallow creme as the new secret component. 

Get This

_main
  • 2 teaspoons very hot water
  • Rounded 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups marshmallow creme (1 7-ounce jar)
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Do This

1. Combine the salt with the hot water in a small bowl and stir until the salt is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.

2. Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy.

3. Add the salt solution to the filling mixture and combine.
