Twinkie Stuffed Cookies
These Twinkie Stuffed Cookies are the talk of the party! Have everyone guess what's stuffed inside, such a fun dessert to serve for any occasion!
- 2 sticks salted butter softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3.4 ounce box instant Vanilla pudding mix
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups chocolate chunks I get the block of milk chocolate from Trader Joes and chop it myself
- 3-4 Twinkies cut in half
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place butter and sugars into a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Beat until well combined, a good minute or two. Stir in eggs and vanilla, mixing until creamy and smooth. Add flour, pudding mix, salt and baking soda. Slowly mix until dough forms them stir in chocolate chunks to combine. Use about 1/2 cup cookie dough, 1/4 cup on top of Twinkie and 1/4 cup on bottom and sides to wrap around Twinkie. Seal all edges and enclose Twinkie completely. Form a round ball, but then press it in hands so it's not so round. Place onto baking sheet, 4 stuffed cookies per baking sheet.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, until baked through, starting to turn golden around edges. Remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes before slicing in half. Cookies are large, so generally I serve 1/2 per serving.
