Brûléed Twinkie Ice Cream Sundae


Recipe by: Willow Bird Baking
Yield: 2-3 servings depend on how much ice cream you use

Celebrate Twinkies’ comeback by setting them on fire and sticking them in ice cream.

Ingredients:
2-3 Twinkies (full disclosure: I couldn’t find Twinkies, so I used Cloud Cakes)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup coconut milk (or other liquid of your choice)
ice cream (I used Birthday Cake ice cream, but pick your favorite flavor)
white chocolate chips (or toppings of your choice)
sprinkles (or toppings of your choice)

Directions:
Pour coconut milk in one small, shallow bowl. Pour sugar in another. Set these up as an assembly line. Dip each Twinkie briefly in coconut milk to coat before rolling them in sugar to coat and placing them on a plate. Use a kitchen torch to “brûlée” the Twinkie until the sugar is bubbly and caramelizing.

Place a few servings of ice cream in a bowl and top with brûléed Twinkies (slicing one in half makes for a pretty presentation), white chocolate chips, and sprinkles. Put a few spoons into the bowl and serve!

    Congrats on married life! :) Love your list–after having lived with my boyfriend for more than two years now, I can attest to many of these great benefits as well.

    And WHAT?! Bruleed twinkies?! Craziness :)

    I will concentrate on the deliciousness of the Twinkies and try not to gag too much on the married stuff. Mine was a hound dog! :)

    Hmm. I’m really feeling like I chose wrong when I picked a partner. My husband has no idea how to set twinkies on fire and put them in ice cream, and that seems like a really important skill for a husband to have.

    Setting Twinkies on fire and sticking them in a bowl of ice cream sounds like a pretty spectacular talent to me. I’d say Mike’s got it made! :)

    Congratulations on your beautiful wedding and married bliss! I’ve been following this blog since I left home for university back in ’09. Your posts and recipes have inspired me through good times and bad, and I credit you with the idea for my annual cupcake/cupfake banquet (which now works as a handy reunion party for my uni friends).

    I check back here regularly, since reading through your old (and new) posts is a great source of comfort for me, in good times and bad.

    Thank you for providing me with countless delicious recipes and ideas, as well as a ‘happy place’ online.

    Best wishes,

      Wow, Frances, this is about the sweetest comment I think I’ve ever gotten! You really made my day (and made me a bit misty eyed to boot). I’m so glad I could be a happy place online for you and also to have been able to be a part of your banquets. Thank you so much for sharing!

    I never would have thought to take a torch to Twinkies, but it sounds like a brilliant idea. I love it when I discover smart people.
