Step 2: Making the Twinkie molds


The trick for making a Twinkie mold is quite simple, and easy to get the hang of.  Don't waste your  money on fancy Twinkie making kits (which I understand do exist).  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 a bunch of 9" sheets of aluminum foil (enough to suit the recipe you're using).
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. 
Repeat.

Arrange on a cookie sheet or in a shallow pan. 


Nice work! And have you tried testing in comparison to a real Twinkie? I'd like to see how they rank up among the ones you made.<br />
Pretty soon, that will be really hard.... to find a twinkie i mean.
Which recipe had the least amount of fat?
Probably the vegan, gluten free ones.
Tallahassee will be happy to make is own twinkie<br />
...With thanks to this challange the world will not run out of twinkies.
Now that Hostess is shutting down, it is our sworn duty as Instructables users to master this 'ible and share it with everyone in the WORLD.
LOL That is what brought me to this page, no more Twinkies!
Those Twinkie making kits are actually reasonably priced from what I understand, I'm all for custom making molds and all but sometimes it pays to buy something (if the product is worth it), and there's even a recipe and other tools in with the kit that can be repurposed!
wait wait, you have a knife made by kyocera? isn't that a phone company xD
what does that have to do with anything haha?

AWWWWWWW<br /> *blush*<br />
twinkie-party looks like fun, the fingerprints on your survey sheets tell another (less healthy) tale. But who counts calories when you're talking twinkie?<br /> <br /> I&nbsp;know twinkie's are classic, but any more non-perishable cellophane-wrapped goodies hiding up your sleeve? King Dons, Ho-Ho's, snoballs?<br />
Best Twinkie challenge that I've ever been too. Ever. <br />
The memory of it was so great that I used the wrong 'to'... too.<br />
