Backpacking Food: How to Make Twinkie Strawberry Shortcake

How to Make Twinkie Strawberry Shortcake

Dessert on the trail is often a couple of cookies or nuggets of chocolate.  But sometimes, you need to treat yourself!  Prior to testing this recipe, I hadn’t eaten a Twinkie in probably 5 years, and let me tell ya…they are still a classic. 

Whip this up for you and your trail buddy, and you’ll have a happy belly as you tuck on into your tent.  It also clocks in at a low 2.5 oz per serving, meaning it can go along on any trip.
