Nutella Pop Tarts

Nutella Pop Tarts sounds like an amazing combination, doesn’t it? I mean, who doesn’t love the creamy taste of nutella? And Pop Tarts are a tasty treat as well. Now picture biting into that creamy, chocolate, hazelnut taste inside of a crispy pastry. Yum!

Making home made pop tarts and combining those two things has to be incredible! The soft crust with warm nutella sounds like an incredibly yummy snack that you could have for dessert or possibly breakfast from time to time!

What Are Pop Tarts?

If you haven’t heard of pop tarts before, they are a flat rectangular toaster pastry with a sugary filling sealed inside two layers of rectangular, thin pastry crust. I loved pop tarts, when I was growing up. These weren’t something we ate often. So when my mom did buy pop tarts, I was SO EXCITED! My favorite flavor was the frosted raspberry ones. If you have read any of my blog posts, you will notice that I’m a huge fan of raspberry, in general! Especially raspberry martinis, aka French Martinis. Mmm, mmm! But I digress. Back to the pop tarts. They are typically considered a breakfast snack and come in a variety of flavors. You could put almost any flavor inside a homemade pop tart. For my first attempt, I went with a Nutella filling and, thus, the Nutella Pop Tart recipe was created.

What Is Nutella?

Nutella is a sweetened hazelnut cocoa spread. It’s basically a spreadable candy bar which is why it is so loved by everyone! You can add it to some bread and have a hazelnut sandwich – so good! Adding nutella to a home made pop tart just sounds like the right thing to do! When you bake the pop tarts, the nutella gets warm and gooey inside the fresh and crispy crust. Can’t you just taste it?

Making The Nutella Pop Tarts

These nutella pop tarts are super easy to make and is an awesome breakfast snack for you or your kids. I’ve made these for my entire family and everyone from age 46 down to age 2 loved them! You only need a few ingredients to bake these yummy snacks and are much tastier than the original, store bought treats. You will look like a professional baker, when you whip these up for your guests and you don’t have to have an extensive baking background. This is a very basic recipe that is easy to follow and difficult to screw up. Are you in?

There are two main ingredients, are you ready? Store bought refrigerated pie crusts and Nutella. Basically, you just put together easily accessible ingredients and bake. Then, you dress up the nutella pop tarts by adding icing to the top with some sprinkles or as we Bostonians call them, jimmies! That’s really it! And boy oh boy are these delicious. For such an easy recipe, you will be surprised at how tasty these are. Add some Pillsbury pie crusts and nutella to your shopping list (if you don’t have some on hand already) and get baking!
