I'm experiencing a wave of nostalgia when it comes to food and few snacks transport me back to my idyllic childhood that Hostess or Little Debbie snack cakes. Hmmm, here are some of my favorite:
- Zebra Cakes
- Suzy-Qs: I think I've had a Suzy-Q one time and it was just...amazing. You know, I just read that one of those cakes has only 290 calories, that isn't terrible. I may have to have another one sometime.
- Swiss Rolls
- Hostess Fruit Pies
I am having trouble believing that I am 47-years-old and have never had a Sno-Ball. I think it's because I really didn't become a coconut convert until later in life.
There is an Amish recipe I have that I always wanted to try but just hadn't gotten around to it because, well, if I make a Twinkie I'm going to eat the Twinkie and, yeah, for caloric reasons that never seems like the best idea. But I am having second-thoughts about it after seeing these photos. Milca from our Amish365 sponsor, Dutchcrafters, made this recipe for us, and it looks INCREDIBLE (she verified that, yes, it is very tasty).
Now, without further ado, let me share this super Amish recipe with you!
