Twinkie Recipes: Celebrate The July 15th Return With Dessert (PHOTOS)

Hugs & Cookies XOXO

We thought we'd lost you, Twinkie. Welcome back. That's right -- in case you had't already heard, on July 15, 2013, Twinkies will be back on America's shelves.

The Twinkie, while of dubious nutrition and composition, has always been one of our favorite snack cakes to indulge in, every once in a while. To celebrate the return of the Twinkie, you could of course just eat a few, but that doesn't seem like as much fun as Twinkie tiramisu, Twinkie cupcakes or -- the ultimate indulgence -- fried Twinkies. We pulled together some of the most incredible uses we've ever seen for Twinkies below, let us know if you give any of them a try.
