Twinkie Cupcake Recipe!


Twinkie Cupcakes 
1 box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients on back of box
1 small box sugar free/fat free instant French vanilla pudding mix
1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow fluff
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 teaspoons very hot water
Marshmallow Buttercream (recipe & ingredients follow)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two muffin tins with about 20 paper liners. Set aside.
 
2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions, stirring the box of pudding mix into the cake batter to blend. Portion batter evenly among muffin cups, about 2/3 full, and bake for approx. 15-18 mins or until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely, the core out the cupcake’s middles with a sharp, small paring knife, careful not to cut through the entire cupcake. Eat or discard centers.
 
3. First, dissolve the salt into the hot water and allow to cool. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the marshmallow cream, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy. Beat in the salt water. Mixture should be light but not as stiff as frosting.

4. Scoop filling into a resealable plastic bag, seal tight, and snip off a corner of the bag. Pipe the filling into each cored cupcake, filling just to the top. Refrigerate cupcakes while you prepare the frosting.

Marshmallow Buttercream
 
1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow fluff
2 sticks butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
About 1 bag (32 oz) powdered sugar
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the fluff, butter and vanilla until combined & creamy, about 2 mins. Gradually begin adding powdered sugar in, about one cup at a time, until frosting is light and fluffy.
2. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes, careful to cover the filled center with frosting. Store frosted cupcakes airtight, preferably in the fridge. They’re super good cold! If desired, garnish with thin slices of Twinkies.

  3. I made these over the weekend, and I don't typically have problems with frosting, but I could not, for the life of me, get this frosting to be light and fluffy. Any tips? They turned out good, but were super sweet, and I am guessing that if the frosting had been lighter and fluffier they would have been perfect.

    1. I think it called for way to much powdered sugar. I had to add milk to thin mine out and make it a bit fluffier. Then had lots of frosting left over.

  4. Maybe reduce the amount of powdered sugar? Or less butter. Hope that works!

  6. Also, from the sound of this recipe, you will need two 7 oz jars of fluff. one for the filling and one for the frosting. Correct?

  7. I don't use anything with artificial sweetners, so how necessary is it to use the sugar-free pudding? Would it work with regular instant pudding?

    1. Sure it would, that's what I bought. I don't buy ANYthing with artificial sweetener. With all the information online, shame on those who do.

  8. Correct one jar of fluff for the filling and another for the frosting :)

  9. No you can use the regular instant pudding :)

  10. I'm a bit confused because the filling has a different recipe, mentioning marshmallow cream but then the frosting says to use marshmallow fluff. Do you fill the cupcake with the frosting?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I just made these and I don't think they taste anything like a Twinkie. I am so disappointed :( The filling tasted very buttery & my cupcakes shriveled up when I took them out of the oven.

  12. Recipe doesn't really make any sense.

  13. I found the filling and frosting to be "off" I added a container of coolwhip to the filling and another container of coolwhip to the frosting, it was amazing! My friends all said they were awesome! I also "overfilled" my cupcakes so they puffed up and looked like twinkies while baking (two cake mixes made 36 cupcakes not 48)...

    1. Okay, so you made the frosting and filling as the recipe stated and then added the whipped cream? Or did you put in in when you blended everything together?

  14. Try going to: kopykat.com they have some amazing duplicate recipes there.

  15. When I made them I didn't have enough filling to fill all of the cupcakes. You would have to double it in order to do all of the cupcakes.

  16. " core out the cupcake’s middles with a sharp, small paring knife, careful not to cut through the entire cupcake. Eat or discard centers."... ummmm.. EAT THE CENTERS of course :) LOL

  23. This recipe is totally off. A "7 minute frosting" would have sufficed. Light, flavorful and perfect for copycatting a "Twinkie".
    Also, a regular vox of instant pudding.

  27. One who has traveled to the Philippines and had tasted the Filipino comfort food called "adobo" will attest to the delectable taste of this main dish. You can use different main ingredients for this dish - pork, chicken, fish, beef, lamb, squid and vegetables. Cooking it is easy as you just have to put the main ingredient with the following spices and condiments - soy sauce, vinegar, black pepper, garlic and bay leaf together. Simmer until the main ingredient is cooked and tender.
