The fancy Twinkie molds
are nice if you're going to be making them a lot, and they sure cut down on waste. But for my first time out, I decided to make them out of what I already had on hand: aluminum foil.
The trick for making a Twinkie mold from is quite simple, and easy to get the hang of. And if you're making Twinkies for the legions, I recommend making the half-sized molds that I used. In fact, just do it that way.
You don't need to be eating that much Twinkie!
Then you can have two.
Cut twenty four 9" sheets of aluminum foil
Fold each piece of aluminum foil in half twice.
Wrap the folded foil around a small spice bottle to create a mold.
Leave the top of the mold open for pouring in the batter.
Arrange on a cookie sheet or in a shallow pan. Spray molds with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 325F (160C)
