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!

Ingredients Nutrition

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.

I was pretty disappointed w/ this recipe; I'm a huge tiramisu lover, & this wasn't even close.

This recipe got a 10 on the WOW-FACTOR scale. I made a 1 & 1/2 recipe - one for a 13x9 pan to take to a potluck and 1/2 recipe for a 9x9 pan for the kids. I *thought* I had enough ricotta cheese, but ran short. Had to add in some cream cheese and extra mascarpone to come up to the total needed. I used strong brewed coffee for the Kahlua (teetotalers & pregnant women at the potluck) and rum extract for the rum. I used more twinkies in he 13x9 because 10 just didn't cover the bottom - I probably should have cut them in half length-wise and put them cut side up. Overall this was a super sweet dessert. I will make it again with less twinkies and less than the amount of powdered sugar called for. Thanks for adding this recipe to the ZaaR!

I made this to take to a tailgating outing yesterday...everyone loved it. I made a receipe and a half....turned out well. The alcohol was not too strong at all. The creamy stuff was very good, but a different consistency than we're used to....but definitely a keeper!
