Nutella S’mores Puff Pastry Pop Tarts
By Jenny Pham
Six words – Nutella S’mores Puff Pastry Pop Tarts. These ingredients alone are to LIVE for, let alone when they’re all combined together. These simple treats are like an elevated chocolate croissant (and we mean ELEVATED). Think small pockets of flaky pastry stuffed with ooey gooey chocolate and marshmallow and drenched in nutella and crunchy graham crackers. When we say this is the type of the treat that could turn any bad day into the best day of your life, we truly mean it.
So what’s the catch? There really is none. In fact, these are so easy to make, you might even want to start a business selling these. Most of the ingredients are store-bought so it’s as simple as compiling the ingredients and baking them to perfection.
First, you lay out store-bought puff pastry and top a square with a dab of nutella, followed by marshmallow fluff and a piece of chocolate of your choice (could be Hershey’s Kiss, Dove Chocolate, or even mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cup for a smudge of salty peanut butter). This recipe calls for homemade marshmallow fluff, but if you don’t feel like going the extra mile (we get it), then feel free to use store-bought marshmallow fluff straight from a jar, it’ll still be equally as good! The only real “heavy lifting” involved in this recipe is making the nutella sauce, which entails melting the nutella with heavy cream until it is smooth and velvety. An alternative to this is to simply spread straight nutella onto your baked pop tart!
All in all, indulge however which way you want because with these ingredients, you can’t have too much or too little of any of them. The key, however, is to enjoy these fresh out of the oven as they won’t be as good once they cool off (similar to a s’more). Don’t worry, it’ll be hard to have any leftovers once you have that first bite!
