If you love Twinkies, you'll LOVE these Twinkie Truffles! Tasty morsels of moist snack cakes coated in a creamy white chocolate.
Ingredients
  • 1 box Twinkies (about 10 snack cakes)
  • 1 pkg white Candiquik or almond bark
  • Yellow food coloring
Instructions
  1. First, line a cookie sheet with foil and set aside. Unwrap all of the Twinkies and place them in a large bowl. Using clean hands, begin crumbling/smashing the Twinkies into a fine crumb--the mixture will be moist and will come together in a ball. Incorporate any loose crumbs if needed.
  2. Using a cookie dough scoop, roll the truffles into Tablespoon-sized balls. Place on the cookie sheet and freeze for about 20 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, melt ¾ of the package of white chocolate bark until smooth. Stir in a drop of yellow food coloring and stir until the chocolate is pale yellow.
  4. Drop the truffles into the melted chocolate and coat completely; remove gently with a fork and return to the cookie sheet. Repeat until all truffles have been dipped. Once the yellow layer has set, microwave the remaining white chocolate until smooth and drizzle it evenly over the truffles. Let the drizzle set before serving.
  5. These truffles last about a week and can be stored in the fridge, freezer or room temperature when sealed airtight. Makes about 16 truffles.
