Cooking Corner: Deep Fried Twinkies: Interesting, to say the Least

The third food to be fried this month is the Hostess Twinkie. This almost completely unnatural food could only be made more unhealthy by the simple art of deep frying. The Twinkie itself is shrouded in mystery. Rumors have speculated that it can even survive a nuclear holocaust, as long as it is not within the direct blast radius of the bomb’s impact. The oldest rumor of all that follows the Twinkie is the fact they never expire. The only ingredients required to make this dish are a Hostess Twinkie and a large vat of heated oil.

The steps to deep frying the Twinkie are as follows:
Step 1: Unwrap the Twinkies and heat the oil to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Step 2: Place the Twinkies inside the heated oil.
Step 3: Cook the Twinkies for 4-8 minutes.
Step 4: Delicately remove the Twinkies from the deep fryer.
Step 5: Place onto a paper towel to dry for at least 5 minutes.

Once the Twinkies have cooled and mostly dried out, it is time to eat them. Because of their sponge cake consistency, they absorb a very large amount of oil. This makes every bite into the Deep Fried Twinkie very “juicy.” By no means is the Deep Fried Twinkie soggy, however. It is actually lightly crunchy, but is undeniably very oily and juicy. Of all the deep fried foods made so far, the deep fried Twinkie is the food that is most like to induce a heart attack.
