The secret is to use [easyazon_link identifier=”B00A9YG42K” locale=”US”]Twinkies[/easyazon_link] as the layer of ladyfingers.

This recipe can be a little messy. Delicious, rich, but messy.

You should also know that although the recipe calls for a certain amount of Kahlua, feel free to change the amount to whatever you’re comfortable with. If you are going to be serving this dish to your children or you just don’t like alcohol, feel free to substitute the Kahlua with more strong coffee. Pinky swear it will still taste delicious!Twinkie Tiramisu. An easy to make, delicious version of the classic favorite!

By the way, this happened when we were trying to take photos…guess even the puppy can’t resist! Sigh. That’s what happens when I turn my back. Kids and dogs and husbands eat all the things! Before supper. Relate?

  1. It says to use an 8X8 pan but in the picture it looks lime a 9X13. So wanted to know if 8X8 does that use all the twinkies in the box or not. I want to make the larger size
    Pmease advise.

    1. This is actually an 8 by 8 inch loaf pan (all I had at the time) it’s trickery :). Try the larger size, you’lll just end up with thinner slices. For how sweet this is, that migh tbe good!

  2. Want to make this but I don’t understand in the 4th step where is says remaining ground coffee. Remaining from what? It seems the strong coffee all goes in with the Kahlua. Thanks!

    1. Oh boy. This recipe was updated to use strong coffee instead of instant coffee granules but that ground coffee wording still was in there. Thanks for letting me know! It simply should say coffee. I hope that helps!
