Homemade Nutella Pop Tarts Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy

After making the Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts a few weeks ago, the kids have been begging for a Nutella version. Nutella works with everything, right? Today, I’m introducing you to the magic that I call Homemade Nutella Pop Tarts. These are more like a dessert than a breakfast treat but they are so good that I am having a hard time deciding which are my favorite – the strawberry or Nutella version.

Ingredients

Nutella Pop Tart Ingredients

Step by Step Directions

Preheat the over to 350 degrees.

Roll out one pie dough on a floured surface. Roll into a rectangle as much as you can. Using a pizza cutter, cut the outsides of the circle to make a rectangle. Repeat with second pie dough.

Nutella Pop Tarts

Cut the dough into 8 even rectangles. Repeat with second pie dough roll so that you have 16 total rectangles.

Nutella Pop Tart Dough

Place 8 rectangles on a baking sheet (that is covered with parchment paper). Spread 1 to 2 tbsp Nutella in the center of each dough square leaving a border so that you can seal them.

Nutella Pop Tarts with Filling

Cover each rectangle with the remaining 8 dough rectangles.

Seal the edges by crimping all the way around the pastries with the end of a fork.

You can use your pie dough scraps to create other shapes. I rolled the remaining scraps of dough out and make some heart Pop Tarts with a heart cookie cutter.

Expert Tips & Tricks

Do you have to top the Pop Tarts with sprinkles (or “jimmies” if you are from the North)? Nope. You can can’t leave your Pop Tarts topping-less. You can leave off the chocolate icing and sprinkles and make ones just like the original Pop Tarts of 1964. Well, they didn’t have Nutella in 1964 but they had Pop Tarts. Or top the Pop Tarts with marshmallow and crushed graham crackers would be amazing on a Nutella Pop Tart to make a Nutella S’mores Pop Tart.

RECIPE FAQs

What kinds of fillings do Pop Tarts have?

While I’m showing you how to make Nutella Pop Tarts today, there are other fillings that you can try. Strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and s’mores are just a few great ideas that are perfect inside a flaky crust.

Are Pop Tarts always rectangular or square?

No. Homemade Pop Tarts can be whatever shape you like! Since we had scraps from cutting the pie crust into a rectangle, we rolled out the extra and cut them into hearts. You can put some cookie cutters to good use and make all kinds of shapes. I would stick to basic shapes though to ensure you can put enough filling inside.Heart Shaped Pop Tarts

Can I Make Homemade Pie Crust for these Pop Tarts?

Of course, you can make homemade pie crust. I didn’t but that doesn’t mean you can’t. If you have time and want to make MORE Pop Tarts than just 6, I would suggest making your own pie crust.
