You guys have got to try this...it's unbelievable! I had heard about this a few years ago from a friend but could never find a recipe for it. Well, I finally found it on the internet. This recipe is by Chef Jonny of Kitsch'N on Roscoe in Chicago. I think my adult guests enjoyed this more than the kids!

Directions

  1. Line a 9x13x13 pan (or similar size) with Twinkies.
  2. Distribute for even coverage.
  3. Drizzle Twinkies with Kahlua and let them soak.
  4. Combine ricotta and mascarpone with a large spoon until smooth.
  5. Slowly begin to add powdered sugar (reserve 1/8th package of sugar for garnish) and whisk until mixture is smooth but heavy.
  6. Add dark rum and continue to whisk until fully combined and mixture is fuller and lighter.
  7. Taste mixture for desired sweetness (do not add more rum or tiramisu will not set properly).
  8. Pour cheese mixture evenly over twinkies in pan, use a soft spatula to smooth mixture and distribute in between twinkies and into corners.
  9. Cover and place pan in refrigerator for four hours to set.
  10. To finish, sprinkle cocoa powder liberally over top of tiramisu.
  11. Then grate chocolate bar and sprinkle shavings over the top as well.
  12. To serve, cut into pieces and dust with powdered sugar.
  13. Enjoy!
  14. For something different, try Frozen Twinkie Tiramisu by freezing overnight (just remember to cut pieces out with a hot, butter knife), it's decadent!
  15. Cooking time is refrigeration time.
