Over half a billion Twinkies are baked every year — that's one thousand golden cakes a minute! And it all started back in 1930, when an enterprising Hostess baking manager in Chicago created a tasty golden rollup and filled it with creme. Now, three quarters of a century later, we're still enjoying the sweet 150 calorie treat.

In honor of the milestone, Hostess has created “The Twinkies Cookbook.” Theresa Cogswell, vice president of research and development for Interstate Bakeries Corporation, and Peter Sheridan, Twinkie enthusiast, visited TODAY share some of these inventive recipes.
