I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Twinkies. I received samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

A week or so ago I was walking through the store and passed a Hostess Cakes display. I love all of the cakes and am so glad they are in stores to snack on. But as I stared at the Twinkies, I wanted to see if I could use them to create something really yummy for the girls and I. Looking into my cart I saw my bunch of bananas and an idea came to me. How would Banana Pudding taste if I took out vanilla wafers and substituted them with Twinkies? Well, I had to try it. I have to say… it is Delicious! My Twinkies Banana Pudding is awesome!
Banana Pudding is a classic and a favorite in this house. Homemade Banana Puddings are my favorite. I do the very basics in and my kids love it!
- Box of Twinkies
- Container of Cool Whip
- 3 ripe bananas
- 2 boxes of 3.4 ounce vanilla pudding
- 4 cups of milk
- Make the pudding with the milk according to box instructions. Slice the Twinkies and layer the bottom of your bowl with them. Top the slices with the pudding. Add bananas on top and then spread a layer of Cool Whip. Start again and top with sliced Twinkies and serve!
Having Twinkies back on store shelves is a great thing. I grew up with Twinkies and all of the Hostess treats around. But it was not until I was a mom that I realized what a fun snack these are to have in the cabinet. My kids love the fluffy golden cakes and I always lick the cream filling out first. They bring back so many memories from childhood and I love that I can share them with my kids!
Twinkies can be used in so many ways to make fun recipes! How about chocolate dipped with colorful sprinkles on them? Or use them to be Minions on a cake! I have even seen them cut in two, ice cream added in the middle, to create ice cream sandwiches!
What could you create in your kitchen with Twinkies? I know my kids and I loved creating the Twinkies Banana Pudding Recipe!
I love this so much that I can’t even find the words to tell you how awesome this is. YUM!!
I can practically taste this through the screen. This is the perfect way to elevate a Twinkie!
What a quick and easy idea! I love banana pudding!
oooooooh yes. Such a delicious shortcut I can’t even stand it! Bring on the whipped cream!
This looks SOOOO good! I love homemade banana pudding and twinkies just tops the cake.
All these Twinkie recipes! Who knew?? I haven’t had one in years…. since childhood, at least 20.
Of this is great. Have a twinkie addict in the family.
I love banana pudding. Every time I make it my kiddo sings the Banana Pudding song. It’s cute.
I really like banana pudding. This looks like an awesome twist on it!
What a clever twist on banana pudding. I’d have never thought to use Twinkies.
I would have never thought to add Twinkies to banana pudding. I love it (and I’m totally suggesting this next time someone is making banana pudding.)
You could substitute Twinkies in any recipe and I would be happy! This looks great, I’ll take a slice to go!
What a great idea. We love banana pudding and this sounds like a fun way to change it up!
I can’t believe there is a Twinkie cookbook now! I would have never thought to use Twinkies in a recipe.
This looks so tasty – I usually use vanilla wafers in my banana pudding – this is a sweet twist!
Oh my, I never thought of using Twinkies in the place of Wafers. This looks amazing and I bet my kids would be in heaven with it.

I think its great Twinkie was able to make a comeback. A lot of great recipes floating around these days.
I LOVE this! I made something similar but with banana pudding and I was actually thinking that I would like it more with vanilla instead. YUM!!
This looks and sounds amazing. Now I have to run out and get some Twinkies so I can make this for my family.
Yummy!! I love Twinkies and try not to buy them because they are this tempting!!
Yes, yes yes! This is the perfect recipe for us. I haven’t had a twinkie in AGES!

Twinkies are my weakness! Keep them away! ;)
That’s a fun way to use Twinkies. I haven’t bought any since they came back on the market, but this post is making me want to get a box when we go out tonight.
This looks really yummy. I would have never thought to use Twinkies for this.

Attended a church Christmas party and this was served. I couldn’t wait to discover who brought it so I could get the recipe. I was amazed how simple it was to be so different, and so definitely delicious! Now I’m trying to find that Hostess cookbook!
