    I love the idea of combining nutella and marshmallows in a pop tart, not for breakfast (unless weekend), but could be nice though πŸ™‚

    I know this is silly, but I kind of wanted to see it split in half so we could see the line of filling inside. That was my favorite part, breaking it to see the mystery “fruit” flavor! Obviously this is before they put the matching sprinkles/frostings on the outside. Too sweet!

    I definitely still crave pop-tarts and though I’ll occasionally succumb and pick up a box of them, homemade is definitely my preference. The Nutella version is my fave!

    I used to get a Hot Fudge Pop Tart everyday during break in middle school…loved ’em! Way too sweet for me now though. Yours look amazing! Definitely something that is better homemade. Need to try these!

    These look so delicious! I can’t wait to try this… I think I’ll do it tonight! This may sound like a stupid question, but I’m assuming you keep these refrigerated right? Lol. I’m a noob!

    xoxo, Christine

    Just made these with whole wheat flour and I put homemade blueberry jam inside. The wide eyes I got from my friends were worth it! Served them warm, and they were just as good the next day right out of the fridge. I am going to make these again, and try to use less butter.

    I want to add vanilla… How much would you add?

      1 teaspoon should work.

    Thank you for posting a healthy alternative for pop tarts. My kids like pop tarts but I do not like all the processed things they add in the store bought ones. Yours is delicious and an easy to follow recipe with tons of other good recipes as well!
