sliced fresh strawberries
1 (18.75 ounce) can
ready-to-use strawberry glaze
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
Excellent! My guests and I agreed, though, that the ratio of cake to frosting was off (too much frosting - not enough cake). I would suggest using 16 Twinkies and keeping them whole- do not cut them in half. Further, I would reduce the frozen whipped topping from a 12 oz. to an 8 oz. container. Then I think it would reach perfection! Simple to make, yet impressive!Great spring/summer dessert!
While this recipe was good...the ingredients ran over. There was too much filling for the size of the dish.
Filling needs to be reduced by about 1/2
This went over big at a 4th of July BBQ. I did modify slightly. I used a trifle dish and the amount of cream cheese filling was just right. I did have to use 12 Twinkies though. The biggest change I made was to use Supreme Strawberry Topping, from this site, in place of ready made strawberry glaze. I took one look at the ingredients in that stuff and just could not bring myself to buy it. Besides Supreme Strawberry Topping is to die for and very easy to make. I also added a few blueberries for that red, white and blue look. The end result was great to look at and even better to eat. Just make sure you give it enough time to set in the fridge before serving.
Great, but way too thin with just one layer of twinkies! I used 20 twinkies and the double decker works perfect with the the amount of topping specified in the original recipe. I also used the perfect strawberry topping recipe and think it is a much tastier option!. Ummm ummm good!
My husband, son and grandkids helped prepare this and they were very happy with the flavors. a very good dish. Imagenie
not too bad, not my favorite but everyone else said they liked it and they asked for the recipe. A little to "prepared" tasting for me probably from the twinkies. Try it again but with a homemade sponge cake on bottom
This was delicious. I took it to work and everyone loved it! It was easy to prepare the night before. I used more strawberries than it called for, though. I think you need twice as many as it says so it will be completely covered on top.
This recipe was great!! I made it for our annual block party & there were hardly any leftovers. The only change that I made was I made it in a triffle bowl & cut the twinkies into thirds instead of half so that it was easier to scoop out & serve. I also layered all of the ingredients so that it looked pretty =). I will def. make this again, it was super easy!!! You just can't go wrong with Twinkies!!
