I have an unpopular confession to make guys. I cannot stand Nutella. As wildly popular as it is I just can’t get into it. Now, I love me some chocolate hazelnut cookies from Ikea but there is just something about Nutella that doesn’t agree with me. In this house, though, that’s just blasphemy. I am surrounded by Nutella-holics. Give me peanut butter and chocolate any day, but you can keep the hazelnut.
That said, most of my cooking is more about my little counterparts anyway. So here I am with a super easy homemade Nutella Pop Tart recipe that is wildly popular in our house. It’s a great one for kids to help with as well because it is so easy and they are pretty fun to put together.
My two nerdlets are a tough audience when it comes to breakfast. One refuses to even look at oatmeal while the other is obsessed. The other isn’t much of a fan of cereal while the other is a connoisseur. When given the chance I like to make something unique and fun to eat in hopes it will be a crowd pleaser. These homemade Nutella Pop Tarts are always a safe bet. ( Even my 33-year-old adopted child, aka husband, is a fan!)
We have had two days off of school for a snowstorm, which is quite the oddity for Arkansas. I knew that there had to be something special to get everyone going in the morning so homemade Nutella Pop Tarts to the rescue. Even though I won’t be enjoying them I always have my homemade iced mocha coffee to brighten my morning.
If you aren’t a fan of the store-bought pie crusts you can make your own pie dough fairly easily. It will need to chill a while so be sure to make that ahead of time. I will be adding a recipe for my favorite in a later post, but I will often use it if I don’t want to use store-bought or I’m out and don’t feel like running to the store.
We do homemade pop tarts in a variety of flavors around here such as Strawberry, chocolate caramel, and even chocolate marshmallow on occasion so I’ve gotten pretty good at whipping up a batch of homemade pop tarts in a pinch. Making your own pop tarts is a great alternative if you are trying to avoid gluten, processed sugar, and other ingredients often found in the store-bought stuff.
