    Redsie's Note:

    Taste like Twinkies... with less sugar! the secret is replacing some cream cheese by light Ricotta cheese.

      These are really yummy, especially for the low calories and low fat. The chocolate part was moist and dense...almost brownie-like. I did have integrity issues, though. The cream filling burst up through the top and sides of my muffins. I think maybe next time I will put only 1/3 of the batter into the tin before putting in the filling and cover them with 2/3 of the batter. Otherwise the muffins rise up really high and the filling gets pushed way up to the top.

      Delicious!! It's hard to believe that these are lower in fat. They go together quickly and easily and are loaded with flavor. Be sure to let them cool in the pan for about 10 mins. for easier removal. My family loved these. Thank you for sharing.

      Taking into account the previous review, I did not attempt any substitutes - made just as written. The muffins (to my taste, more cupcake in texture) were light and flavorful. The filling seemed more cheesecake-y than Twinkie-ish to me; good but not what I was expecting. My convection bake time was 18 minutes. The grandkids liked them as I filled them with snacks before sending them home. ;-) Thanks for posting!
