Learn How To Make Homemade Twinkies – Recipe From The Chew

I may have stopped eating twinkies and Hostess made snacks quite some time ago, I sure do remember how delicious they were!  Today on “The Chew” Michael Symon shared a homemade twinkies recipe that just may have me back in the kitchen to try this mouth watering recipe.. For old times sake of course!

Before Michael shared his recipe he talked about his eating habits as a child.  He said that he actually ate very healthy each week, but once or twice a week he was allowed to enjoy a Twinkie, Little Debbie Nutty Bar, or similar treats like that.

Now, that the Hostess Factory is closing down Michael Symon’s homemade twinkie recipe may be in huge demand.. I must admit, this recipe will be put into action very soon.

How To Fold The Egg Yolks and Whites Together

Michael began beating the egg whites, cream of tarter, and sugar thoroughly.  He then started beating the egg yolks separately with more sugar. So, how do you fold them together?  Carla Hall said to take a portion of the egg whites and whisk them with the yolks.  After you have done this add the rest of the egg whites to the yolks.
