homemade s’more pop tarts

by jenna on March 18, 2011

Yep, I went there. And it was probably the best idea I’ve had in the kitchen in a very, very long time.

The idea is pretty simple really—just stuffing marshmallow creme and chocolate chips inside a homemade toaster pastry—and I can’t believe it actually took me this long to do! They really do taste just like s’more pop tarts and are actually quite simple to make.

You need to get on the pop tart bandwagon…stat.

A couple weeks ago I actually went and bought a toaster pastry press from Williams-Sonoma. Adam’s mom had graciously given me a gift card and, naturally, it was burning a hole in my pocket email. When it arrived, I saw that although it was very pretty, you definitely don’t need one to make homemade pop tarts! The only thing this pastry press really does is give you scalloped edges. You could totally just cut your pastry dough into rectangles using a knife.

But you didn’t hear that from me.

Hello marshmallow creme, I love you. I like you on graham crackers with peanut butter, in these pop tarts and right off the spoon.

You complete me.

Do yourself a favor and make these this weekend.

Homemade S’more Pop Tarts

makes about 10 pop tarts

Print this recipe!

Ingredients:

1 recipe flaky pie dough

1 cup marshmallow cream

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 egg, lightly beaten with 2 tsp warm water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Roll out pie dough on a floured surface to 1/8th inch thick and using a toaster pastry cutter or a knife, cut into six inch rectangles. Place rectangles on a lined baking sheet.

Stuff marshmallow creme inside a small plastic bag, seal and snip off the tip. Pipe two inches of creme in the centers of half of the pastry squares, making sure you leave a half inch around so you can seal pop tarts. Next to the marshmallow creme blobs, place a line of five or six chocolate chips.

Brush egg wash around corners of rectangles and then place a plain pastry piece of top, pressing down gently to seal. Brush tops with more egg wash.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden.

Time:

30 minutes, not including time to make dough

You must have read our minds! We’ve been thinking about making homemade pop tarts for a while but couldn’t decide on a flavor! Fruit!? Chocolate?! And now…s’mores!! We’re sold.

soooooo…i don’t love marshmallows (!!!) but i can pack the s’mores away like a full-grown man. these are going to be trouble!

We must be on the same wavelength — I made blueberry “poptarts” last week. But I want smores! Yum!

I made a version of these a couple weeks ago and it didn’t turn out so great. I used graham crackers marshmallows and chocolate and wrapped them in puff pastry and the marshmallow literally melted out of the pastry. Any suggestions on what made mine turn out so different from yours?

Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope March 18, 2011 at 6:01 am

Now THIS is fantastic! I used to be such a pop tart fan when I was little. I was more of the apple cinnamon and strawberry pop tart kind of girl, but there’s nothing wrong with s’mores! What an awesome idea to make your own!

As a kid, pop-tarts were not a popular thing in our house. But I think I went through a long phase of eating those “toaster streudels”.

cathyb.@brightbakes March 18, 2011 at 6:32 am

awesome. My mom never let me have s’more poptarts growing up. We always had to choose strawberry because…well, strawberry is a fruit and therefore, “healthier”…oh the early 90s!!!! Needless to say her version of “healthy” has changed over the years :) And now…I get to have my OWN s’more poptarts…though probably for dessert instead of breakfast! :)
love,

Wow, these look absolutely sinful. But it’s always nice to know what is going into your food…it’s difficult to say that of an actually poptart brand poptart.

after reading Caitlin’s last post, I havent stopped thinking about smores!! This looks like heaven in a pastry

Meghan @ StruggleMuffins March 18, 2011 at 6:52 am

Umm…whoa. Not fair. I’d almost rather not know of a homemade version of smores pop tarts so I can carry on with my life thinking that only the high fructose corn syrup-laden – and easily avoidable- variety exists. Damn. I guess I’ll just have to welcome pop tarts back into my life.

Brilliant idea as usual! I don’t think you can ever go wrong when you pair marshmallow creme with chocolate, especially when it’s stuffed inside a pastry crust.
