Homemade Nutella PopTarts, So Easy and Delicious You Won't Believe It!

By Kelsey Banfield |

Nutella Pop TartsEver since I made my daughter strawberry pop tarts last month she’s been asking for them every morning. To have some fun I’ve been switching up fillings, using apricot jam, blueberry jam and grape jam. Then, last week, I took it over the top and filled them with nutella. Yes, nutella. I mean, nutella always seems to be the next step after peanut butter and jam anyway, right? I got the idea for these when I read that my friend Megan sells Nutella PopTarts at her bakery stand at the farmer’s market in San Francisco. Her recipe is top secret and, I’m sure, far more gourmet than this one. So, for those of us who can’t make it out there, here is a great one to try. Well, needless to say, she loved the new filling idea. In fact, I wonder if she’ll be able to ever go back to regular jam fillings again. I’ve created a nutella monster! Oh well, I can’t say I blame her. These easy breakfast treats are delicious, fun and just the thing!

Homemade Nutella Pop Tarts

1 package of refrigerated pie crust

Nutella

Glaze:

Nutella, melted

1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

2. Transfer the pie crusts to a lightly floured surface and cut it into 2×3 rectangles. It is easiest to measure the pieces with a ruler, score the crust with a knife and cut it with a pizza cutter.

3. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of nutella onto one of the rectangles, leaving about 1/4 inch of space before the edge. Use a cookie cutter or paring knife to cut out fun shapes in the second rectangle. Then place the cut out rectangle over the jam and seal the edges together with the tines of a fork. Baking on a cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes, then allow to cool.

4. Drizzle the melted nutella over the warm pop tarts and serve up.
