I actually got this recipe from somewhere else but yours is exactly the same as the one I tried so I thought I would give my review here.
I'm a twinkie lover so I was kind of excited about making this and thought my grandchildren would love it.
One problem, putting the jello in the fridge for 15 minutes does not even begin to solidify it. It's just liquid. So I went ahead and poored the liquid over the Twinkies and then followed the rest of the instructions until completed.
BTW, this recipe makes a humungous batch of desert so I hope you all have a large family or a get-together with about 15 people.
Anyway, I cut the dessert into appropriate portions. It was ok but the Twinkies were extremely soggy. They absorbed every bit of jello liquid.
They were soggy and grainy. The rest was fine but to me it ruined the entire dessert. Maybe if the jello was actually set....I don't know. I just know that I'll probably never make this recipe again. I was very dissappointed.

This was wonderful! Very easy to put together. My family is pigging out on it! I think next time I'll make it in 2 8x8 pans so I can hide one. ;) Thanks so much for posting!
