Chocolate Poptarts: Pure Valentine LoveBrooke 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.
- 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.
