These homemade melt-in-your-mouth Nutella Pop Tarts smothered with Cinnamon Glaze will be love at first bite!
The box variety of pop tarts have long been my guilty pleasure. For whatever reason, they call to me. Scream to me. So I have been wanting to make homemade pop tarts for a while because if boxed pop tarts can be that addicting, I could only imagine how much more intoxicatingly delicious homemade pop tarts would be. And then I made these Nutella Pop Tarts. Mind. blown. Buttery, flaky pastry glazed with cinnamon, vanilla icing, giving way to creamy, Nutella – AKA pastry paradise.
This Nutella Pop Tarts recipe has a few steps, but I promise its so worth it and much easier than you might think. I scaled down my favorite pie crust recipe for the pastry which you form into two discs, refrigerate then roll into 2 large rectangles that you then cut into 9 smaller rectangles. I filled my pop tarts with Nutella and a sprinkling of cinnamon and brown sugar but the filling possibilities are virtually endless, and so will be your cravings. I’m still craving them.
I hope you can enjoy these Homemade Nutella Pop Tarts soon so you can fall in love with them ASAP and start a lifetime tradition of better-than-store-bought homemade pop tarts. Your taste buds and your family will thank you.
