Yesterday I was going through my recipes when I spied a recipe from 1991 for a Twinkie Dessert. Layers of Twinkies and whipped cream, I only made it once, in June of 1991 when we were having company. Although it was good, we never buy Twinkies so I never made it again, although the recipe sits in my files and makes me smile when I see it. This recipe is similar in that it uses store bought desserts to make a dish. This time it's "Ho Ho's" or "Swiss Cake Rolls" if you buy the Little Debbie version.
This one is from Taste of Home magazine - which I was a subscriber of for... years and years!
Ho Ho or Swiss Rolls Dessert
1 package (13 ounces) Swiss cake rolls
2-3/4 cups cold milk
2 packages (3.9 ounces each) instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
2 cups whipped topping
Cut each cake roll into eight slices; set aside any chocolate coating that falls apart or 'off' from rolls for garnish. Line a 9-in. springform pan with cake slices, completely covering the bottom and sides.
In a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Pour over cake. Spread with whipped topping; sprinkle with any reserved chocolate coating. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Yield: 12 servings.
*I just checked ToH to see if they still have this recipe and found it online plus an image! The image is from them.
