Your Hostess recipes

Hostess Brands -- the maker of popular baked goods such as Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread -- announced it is asking a bankruptcy court for permission to shut down, blaming a strike by bakers opposed to a new contract.


Even if Hostess does end up in liquidation, analysts say that some of its most iconic brand names will likely live on, getting scooped up at auction and attached to products from other companies.


Or ... you can just make your own!


We invite you to bake your own version of any Hostess treat, or share photos from past Hostess baking successes. Please send us a photo of your homemade creation along with the recipe and a link to the source, if it's not an original recipe. And of course, tell us how it tastes!


And if you're not the baking type, tell us about your fondest memories of the iconic snacks.
