    Down and Decadent Devil Dogs


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     A few years ago, SarahRC set out to cook her way around the world in alphabetical order, but somewhere along the way, she took a 'detour' down the Hostess baking trail. 'Growing up as I did in a groovy Cambridge family, Hostess products were banned in favor of granola and oatmeal cookies. This was kind of like my childhood longing fulfilled,' she said. She's made Twinkies, cupcakes and even Devil Dogs.

    SarahRC submitted a video of her making homemade Devil Dogs, which was shot by Lynne Vierra. 'They're fresher, have more flavor and no chemicals, preservatives or stabilizers,' she said. 'But I do love the sound of cellophane as the package is ripped open -- sadly, I can't recreate that.' Check out the recipe here.

    Who doesn't dig a Devil Dog? Nobody I know! Morn not the demise of Hostess, this recipe for Devil Dogs promises to take you back to your carefree, childhood days with every bite.

    Several years ago, I set out to cook my way around the world in alphabetical order (www.whatscookinginyourworld.com), which I did. But along the way, I took a little detour down the Hostess trail and made, among other things, Devil Dogs, that I think far surpass the commercial brand.

    Aside from the great taste and knowing exactly what ingredients make up these yummy cakes, if you decide to make these, you'll amaze your friends and family alike, possibly achieving cake God/Goddess status.

    Easy to make, and even easier to eat, these snack cakes are prefect when you want to flaunt your retro-snack-cake-skills.

    Long live the divine Devil Dog!
