Directions

  1. Start by cutting the Twinkies into 1-inch slices and arranging them in a single layer in a deep dish.

  6. Top with the remaining mascarpone mixture, spreading it evenly over the top layer of Twinkies.
  7. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld together.
