Chocodiles – chocolate covered twinkies


Today’s request from Rob – a chocodile. I had never heard of one before, but learned it is a chocolate covered twinkie. It gave me a chance to use my twinkie pan (one of many baking items I have that get little or no use. Hello – cherry maker, mini cake pop maker, mini pie maker, large cupcake pan, to name a few)

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 yolk
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Spray a canoe or twinkie pan with baking spray. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, yolk and vanilla. Blend in milk, then dry ingredients. Spoon batter into prepared pans 3/4 of the way full. Bake 15 to 18 minutes (a toothpick inserted in center of twinkie comes out clean) cool 10 minutes. Use a plastic knife to remove from pan. Cool completley.

Twinkie pan put to good use
  • Filling ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

In a bowl, beat ingredients together. Use the bottom of a wooden spoon to poke 3 holes in the bottom of a cooled twinkie.

Then using a pasty bag or decorating apparatus, carefully fill the three holes. Do not overfill.

Topping – in a microwave safe bowl, heat 1/2 cup cream for 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Let set 5 minutes. Stir smooth. Spread over top of filled twinkies. Store in covered container

I was a little messy with the topping 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you a wonderful day. Remember to be kind. Life can be so hard, try to make someone’s day a little brighter. And, Go Bills!!!
