Recently I've had an opportunity to go back and improve the Hostess Twinkie recipe found on page 47 of the first book, Top Secret Recipes. 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 Hostess cream filling recipe, using fewer ingredients than the original clone, and with marshmallow cream as the new secret component.

This is the closest you can get to the original Twinkie filling. Thank you!

I've been searching and searching for the perfect cream filling for my chocolate cupcake fettish and while many of them tasted great the consistency was never cohesive with the Hostess style we've all come to love and this one is actually the closest :) I used pink salt, it has a bit less of the iodine flavor you get in salt, and I used about a quarter less than the recipe recommended. I've jazzed it up by adding different extracts or adding fresh citrus zest to it.
