Chocolate Twinkies With Homemade Filling

"This recipe came with the canoe pan I purshased on-line and though they call them "Chocolate Canoes" to me they are twinkies (chocolate version of my recipe#414937 ) You could also make them as cupcakes if you've no canoe pan. Using the box mix with this makes it easy and the DGSs love them. Hope you do too."
