Chocolate Poptarts: Pure Valentine Love

By Brooke McLay |

Stevie Wonder has sung about it.  The Black Eyed Peas have belted it during half time.  Beiber has prompted you to get the fever.  It’s time to celebrate the season as love and there’s no better way to show someone you adore them than with these simple homemade chocolate poptarts. 

Two ingredients is all you need to make these glorious confections, reminiscent of the chocolate-filled croissants you find in many a French bakery.  They are simple, flaky, and perfectly divine.  A great way to serve up a bit of lovin’ to your hottie this year.

Chocolate Poptarts

  • 2 prepared pie crusts
  • 2 dark chocolate bars (I used Lindt with a hint of Sea Salt)

 Step 1.  Break the chocolate into 2-square pieces.  Place three pieces of chocolate on one half of the pie crust.   

 Step 2. Place the second half of pie crust over the top of the chocolate.  Use a pizza cutter or crimped-edge knife to slice around the chocolate, leaving a 1/4″ space around each edge of the chocolate.  Crimp the edges with a fork and transfer to a baking sheet. 

 Step 3.  Bake poptarts in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 9-11 minutes, or just until the edges are golden brown.  Transfer to a cooling rack.  Melt the extra pieces of chocolate in a small ziploc bag, snip off the corner of the bag, and drizzle over the poptarts. 

 Serve poptarts hot or cold, with a glass of cold milk.  Makes 6 small poptarts.

    My goodness! 2 ingredients and you have such a heavenly dessert!

  3. Tessa says:

    Now, why do you need 2 pie crusts? it looks like you only use one?

    wow – yum yum!

  5. Evil Timmy says:

    Tessa: Because the author of this recipe understands human nature, and having to make a second trip to the grocery store after making your first batch of these is wasted time that you could spend eating the next batch.

    Yumm, I’m sure they taste even better with soy milk :) Delicious! You get your iron from the dark chocolate too. What a wonderful, simple, yet decadent recipe!!

    Just finished making (and eating!) these delicious confections. So decadent that I made them for dessert! I’ve never made an easier treat. Literally took five minutes to put together and throw them in the oven! 5 stars!

    You have just made my son’s day! He loves the pastries sold in the box. I would rather make my own than feed him the processed ones.
    But there is one thing….I hate to be a party-pooper, but I work with patents, trademarks, and copyrights. Pop-Tart™ is a trademarked name. It would be too bad if you got in trouble with the owner of the trademark. You could change all references to that product to ‘toaster pastries’ or ‘toasted pastries’ and be okay. I’m not saying this to be nasty, and I don’t represent the trademark’s owner. I just thought you’d want to know and avoid any problems. I am posting this comment on a couple of other recipes that are using the trademark, too.
