Today, we did something a little different for Game Time Tuesday – we made it all about Twinkies!

We gave you some different recipes involving Twinkies:

TWINKIE GRASSHOPPER (serves 3-4)

Things you’ll need:

  • 2 1/3 cups milk
  • 6 Twinkies
  • 4 chocolate-covered mint cookies
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream

In a blender, combine 2 cups of the milk and the Twinkies and blend for 5 to 10 seconds. Add the cookies and syrup and blend until smooth, then add the ice cream and blend until smooth once again. Pour in the remaining 1/3 cup milk and blend until thoroughly mixed. Serve immediately.

PINEAPPLE TWINKIE PUDDING (serves 8)

Things you’ll need:

  • 6 Twinkies
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup drained canned crushed pineapple in juice
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter a 9-inch pie pan and dust with flour. Tear each Twinkie into 6 pieces and place in a bowl. Add the beaten eggs and mix gently to coat. Blend in the pineapple and butter, then spoon into the prepared pan. Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.

TWINKIE BANANA SPLIT (serves 4)

Things you’ll need:

  • 4 Twinkies
  • 4 bananas, halved lenghtwise
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream
  • 1 jar strawberry topping
  • 1 jar pineapple topping
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 4 maraschino cherries

Place 1 Twinkie in each of 4 banana split dishes and arrange a banana half on either side of each Twinkie. Place 2 scoops of ice cream with each Twinkie. Top with the strawberry and pineapple toppings and a dollop of whipped topping. Sprinkle on the cashews and top with a cherry. Serve immediately.

(Recipes are from The Twinkies Cookbook)

Since we shared some recipes about Twinkies, we decided to play some games and give away a couple prize bags featuring banana flavored Twinkies!

We played song poetry with the lyrics I’m a brand new man in a foreign land / I’m a man who’s feelin’ that fire / And it’s all so clear when I’m standing here at the peak of my desire. Jane from Mount Vernon called in and correctly guessed that those lyrics belong to TobyMac’s song Burn For You.

Also, Rodney from Gambier won Name That Tune, which was Hope Is What We Crave by For King & Country.

Our Word of the Day was peccadillo, a noun meaning a slight offense. You can read more on that here.

Have a terrific Tuesday evening!
