Love the S’more Poptarts that you buy at the store? If you love those, you’re going to fall head over heels for these Homemade S’mores Poptarts! Plus they have so much more filling than the store bought ones!
When I think of breakfast as a kid I don’t picture peaceful weekend mornings helping my mom or grandmother in the kitchen. I don’t have memories of anyone teaching my how to make the perfect buttermilk biscuit or how to make the amazing pancakes from scratch.
I have memories of cereal, poptarts and Saturday morning cartoons before running outside to play and ride bikes.
I am 100% fine with that haha.
I had two favorite flavors of poptarts when I was growing up. I loved the chocolate fudge poptarts and the strawberry ones. I could have lived off of those when I was little. Later on in life I fell in love with S’mores Poptarts!
Oh sweet heavens, S’mores Poptarts are amazing y’all.
I mean you already know that I have a love affair with s’mores.
I haven’t bought boxed poptarts in forever but oh how I miss them. I mean I’m not 100% against boxed poptarts at all! I love them, I just can’t control myself around them so I kind of have to keep them out of the house as much as I can.
I don’t trust myself around them.
Frankly I don’t trust myself around these Homemade S’mores Poptarts either! haha They’re so good and I dare say that I might love them even more than my beloved boxed s’more poptarts.
Thankfully Thomas loves them just as much as I do (or more) so he’s working on eating them all up for me before I can snack on them. 😉
Want to make these completely from scratch? You can do that too!
You’d just have to make your own marshmallow fluff and chocolate spread.
You could totally make your own pie dough if you wanted to but I’m ok with store bought! They’re easy to make but not as easy as opening a box of poptarts so at least I don’t have to worry about them being in the house toooo often.
Homemade S’mores Poptarts
FOR THE POPTARTS
- 2 rolls refrigerated rolled pie crust (found near the biscuits and cinnamon rolls in the store)
- 1 -2 cups Chocolate Spread or Nutella
- 1 -2 cups Marshmallow Fluff
- FOR THE GLAZE
4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons coco powder
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons hot water
- 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers (optional for top)
- Pre-heat oven to 400F.
- Roll each pie dough sheet out into a large rectangle. (There are normally 2 rolls of dough in each package).
- Using a sharp knife or a pizza roller, cut out 16 rectangles. You may need to gather the scraps and re- roll the pie dough for the last 4 rectangles.
- Fill a plastic sandwich bag (or a piping bag) with the marshmallow fluff and fill another bag with the chocolate spread.
- Leaving about a 1/4 inch or 1/2 an inch border around the edges, cut the tip of each bag and pipe stripes of marshmallow fluff and chocolate down the center of the dough. I alternated stripes of chocolate, marshmallow, chocolate, marshmallow and chocolate.
- Wet your finger with a little water and run it around the bare edges of the dough.
- Add a top layer of pie dough and press the edges down to seal in the chocolate and marshmallow fluff.
- Take a fork and press the edges sealed all the the way around the poptart.
- Bake at 400F for about 10 minutes. (Don't over bake them or you won't have any chocolate or marshmallow left in the center)
- Remove from oven and place on a wire tray to cool.
- Once they're cool, start making the glaze.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter and coco powder.
- Add in the powdered sugar and hot water. Mix until smooth.
- Use a spoon and scoop the glaze out onto the poptarts. Use the back off the spoon to smooth it over the top of the poptarts.
- If it starts to get too thick in the bowl while you're glazing the poptarts just pop the bowl into the microwave for about 5-10 seconds.
- Glaze will harden as it cools.
- While the glaze is still wet, sprinkle a little crushed graham crackers over the glaze.
- Let poptarts sit for just a bit until glaze dries.
- (PS. if you want to heat these, heat them in the oven or the microwave, DON'T put them in the toaster....the glaze will melt into your toaster)
