  • 4 Twinkies frozen for about an hour
  • 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar sifted
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • Food Coloring optional
  • Candy Decorations Optional


  1. In a small saucepan, combine confectioners' sugar, water and corn syrup. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches a temperature of 100 degrees F. Should be able to pour sauce over the Twinkies Stir in the almond extract and food coloring if desired.
  2. While fondant mixture is cooking, cut Twinkies into eighths, cutting off the ends to ensure that they are square shaped. Spread a little bit of the raspberry jam on one of the slices and cover it with another Twinkie slice, making little sandwiches. You should have 16 petit fours.
  3. When fondant mixture has reached 100 degrees, move petit fours onto a wire cooking rack with a layer of parchment underneath. Pour fondant mixture over the petit fours. Use a spatula to cover the sides of the cakes. Top with desired decoration and let sit for about 10 minutes to harden.
