I was really looking forward to the 85th anniversary cookbook edition of Twinkies. Hostess updated and expanded the Twinkies Cookbook. They ahve included some of the best recipes and some new recipes. I have to admit some of the recipes seemed rather bizarre to me, but may very well taste good.
I would have liked pictures for all of the recipes, instead of pictures for about 30% of the recipes. Some recipes included Twinkies with meat, which didn’t sound appetizing, Twinkie Corn Dogs don’t get me excited, but a Patriotic Twinkie Pie or Twinkie Strawberry Shortcake sounds great!
There were recipes covering ~
Twinkies and Cake
Twinkies and Pie
Twinkies and Fruit
Twinkies and Chocolate
Twinkies and Cream
Twinkies and Meat
Twinkies and Novelty
Twinkies in smores or with fruit kabobs sound great and will spice up a dinner party or make for some new snacks and desserts
I enjoyed reading a little about the history of the Twinkie in the introduction to the book. It included facts, ingredients, its inventor, and the celebration of eighty-five years in production.
Overall, this is a fun and easy book to read. It would make for a fun gift.
I received this book from Bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for an honest review.
