Nothin' says lovin' like a heart attack in a pan

I've done a few newsletters in my life, and some have required the use of "filler" material, which was readily available even in those rubber cement days. We got scads of little pasteup-ready magazines that were nothing but filler articles to be used in newsletters, etc.

I've kept this clipping through the years for its sheer awfulness. For some reason I recall this as being from the Red Cross or similar kind of health-centric organization. I say this because I recall being shocked by the ironic juxtaposition of the provider and the killer recipe. Text credits this to a WGN radio listener in Chicago, later "reviewed and adapted" by Twinkie bakers.

And don't worry that Twinkies are no longer being made. There are lots of lookalikes on the grocery shelves. Serve this to your Sugar Daddy... AFTER you make sure you're in the will!

Twinkies Toffee Temptation

1 package (3 3/4 oz) vanilla instant pudding
2 cups milk
1 multi-pak (10) Hostess Twinkies cakes
1 package (8 oz) chocolate-covered toffee candy bars (they're trying not to specify Heath bars), crushed
1 container (4 oz.) non-dairy whipped topping (Cool Whip!)

Prepare pudding with milk as directed on package. Set aside. Slice Twinkies in half lengthwise. Line a 13x9x2-inch casserole dish with bottom halves of Twinkies, creamed filling side up. Sprinkle on 1/2 cup crushed candy. Pour on pudding. Arrange top halves of Twinkies on pudding. Spread on whipped topping. Top with remaining candy. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Makes 10-12 servings.

And yet...I still can't help wondering what it would taste like. I won't be rushing to find out, so it will forever remain a mystery. I definitely couldn't handle the Cool Whip, though.
