The ultimate guy dessert: Twinkies, coffee, and booze. Plus, the ladies love how it looks . . .

Twinkie-Misu

1 box (containing 10) Hostess Twinkies
¼ cup strongly brewed coffee or espresso, cooled
¼ cup Kahlua (may substitute additional strong coffee or espresso)
½ gallon coffee (or coffee and chocolate) ice cream, softened slightly
½ cup bittersweet chocolate, coarsely grated chocolate shavings or sprinkles
Slice each Twinkie in half lengthwise. Line a 8½- by 4½-inch loaf pan lengthwise with two 18-inch-long sheets of plastic wrap, overlapping the sheets slightly in the center of the pan and letting the excess plastic wrap hang over all sides.

Place 5 Twinkie halves, cream side up, crosswise in the pan. Mix together coffee and Kahlua. Using a pastry brush, generously apply some of the coffee mixture to the cut side of each Twinkie. Spoon about a ½-inch layer of softened ice cream over the Twinkies. Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of grated chocolate. Arrange another 5 Twinkie halves on top of the chocolate, cream side up, brush with coffee and top with another ½-inch layer of ice cream and another 2 tablespoons of chocolate. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, finishing with a layer of ice cream. Smooth the top, pressing down firmly. Pan should be filled to just above the rim. Fold plastic wrap over top of cake. Freeze for at least 8 hours.

To serve, carefully unfold the plastic wrap from the top of the cake and use it to lift the cake out of the pan and carefully invert the Twinkie-misu onto a platter. Remove and discard the plastic wrap. Sprinkle top with chocolate shavings and serve with mocha fudge sauce.

My town is having a Summerfest this weekend. Thursday night, I went to see the band and had a deep fat fried Twinkie. :shock: I don't recommend them.

:wave: IALU! All of those Hostess treats tasted like rubber? Spongy, I think that is the best way to describe it... not like a good sponge cake... just spongy. I never liked any of them.

Peanut Butter-Banana Semifreddo
Recipe courtesy of Megan Farquharson for Food Network Magazine
Prep Time: 45 min Inactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time: -- Level: Easy
Serves: 6 servings

Ingredients
For the Crust:
Cooking spray
1/4 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
5 graham cracker sheets, roughly broken
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Ice Cream:
8 large egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1 ripe banana, pureed
2 tablespoons hazelnut liqueur
Pinch of salt
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Directions
Prepare the crust: Spray a 9-by-5-inch metal loaf pan with cooking spray and line with plastic wrap, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all sides; spray the plastic wrap. Finely grind the peanuts and graham crackers in a food processor. Add the melted butter and pulse until combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan and refrigerate.

Make the ice cream: Bring 2 inches of water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Fill a bowl with ice water. Whisk the egg yolks, 1/2 cup sugar, the banana puree, hazelnut liqueur and salt in a large metal bowl. Place the bowl over the pot of simmering water (do not let the bowl touch the water) and whisk until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the bowl from the pot and put in the ice water to cool.

Beat the heavy cream and the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with a mixer until the cream just holds stiff peaks (do not overbeat). Gently fold the cream into the banana custard.

Heat the peanut butter in the microwave until soft, about 20 seconds; let cool slightly.

Drop spoonfuls of the peanut butter into the banana cream and fold until swirled.

Spread the mixture over the crust in the pan, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, at least 9 hours. Lift out of the pan using the plastic wrap and cut into 1-inch slices.

I knew it was you, Semifreddo.

I loved the scene where the big guy shows how he cooks the tomato sauce.

In the 80's most of the guido's wore a lot of gold jewelry, and flashy clothes. A lot are Italian, but not all, most are in the NYC and NJ area.

Some of this stuff is funny, especially the one with George Lopez. :lol:

Now this really looks good with an interesting twist. I guess I'd have to try it, copnsidering the adversion I have to Twinkies.

The 1st time I made Tiramisu, I decided to mske my own Lady Fingers. Boy was that a mistake, took forever. I resorted to buying them.
