A copycat Hostess cupcake recipe that you will fall madly in love with! Or that may cause someone to fall in love with you. It could go either way.
Hearts will pitter-patter a little faster with the first bite as teeth sink down through the chocolate ganache into the devil’s food cupcake and the sticky marshmallow fluff center. True love forever.
Most of their charm comes from the cupcake itself. Under the surface lies a dense, moist and tender crumb with a rich chocolate flavor that’s hard to forget. My new favorite devil’s food recipe, one I can’t wait to bake again.
Combine one of the best cupcakes in the world with a super-sweet, cream filling then seal it all in with an intense chocolate topping. . . if not true love than your new bff. Best friends forever.
I happen to know someone who eats a lot of Hostess cupcakes. This certain someone gave them rave reviews and now wonders how they will ever eat the originals again. I wonder how they ever ate them to begin with.
Bake them if you dare but be warned expectations will be higher. Like that certain someone the originals may no longer satisfy you the same way. Ever again. They might be immensely disappointing after eating these lusty bites of joy.
The good thing is they seem labor-intensive but come together pretty quickly.
And who knows? Their wily charms may work too well.
You may find yourself making them all the time for the demanding Hostess cupcake lovers in your life. You’ll become a pro who can recite the recipe on demand. Not that I would know anything about that.
