Deep Fried Twinkies

Oh my goodness…I was watching TV this weekend and saw a show where they fried everything from Twinkies to Pizza. I had never heard of such a thing and had to try frying a Twinkie for myself. Now, I normally eat pretty healthy, but, my monthly visitor arrived and well, you know how that goes. It tastes a lot like funnel cakes but with that yummy creamy center…try it, but, beware, it is REALLY good.
