Nutella Pop Tarts

Well.

I finally had a chance today to open up my site and see if anyone liked my easy-peasy pop tarts. Imagine the look on my face when I saw that not one person had even clicked on today’s post. It’s been “Live” for 12 hours!! Um…so I thought… The first words that came out of my mouth were, “Wow…nobody likes Nutella Pop Tarts?!?”.

After a few moments of confusion, I noticed that today’s recipe wasn’t even posted! I thought I had this blog post scheduled to go live at 5:00 this morning. I could have sworn that I hit that “schedule” button a couple of days ago.

Ana, our 3 year-old, has strep throat, and our almost 8-month old has the flu. Boooooo!

I am thinking about flu shots, now. I have always been against them, but I’m not sure anymore. I hate seeing my babies like this. Argh. Are you for or against flu shots?

Oh yeah, the Pop Tarts!

Do you have some pie crust sitting around? Store-bought is fine, too. How about a jar of Nutella? Or a jar of jam? You do?!? Well, then, go make these! They will take you all of, oh I don’t know, 20 minutes! 30 tops!

ENJOY!

  1. Awesome idea- minus the egg wash (allergic),. There must be a vegan wash by now! A touch of almond butter under the Nutella also sounds yum 🙂
    I’m all for flu shots.

    I know there are people that don’t “believe” in immunizations/flu shots – but let me tell you a story about my mother. It was before the polio vaccines and my older brother was about 4 years old. He had a play date with the little girl next door, and they had played ALL DAY, mostly in the sand box. That night an ambulance came and took the little girl away, my mother soon learned that she had come down with polio and died very quckly from complications. She was told the incubation period was 60-days. Can you imagine the terror my mother went thru for 60 days? She still talked about it until she passed away. Every sniffle, every cough, every tired face….she compulsively took his temperature. She would ever get up every couple of hours all night and check on him. Luckily he remained Polio free. So, she was a HUGE supporter of anything we can do to protect our children and ourselves. I myself didn’t get a whooping cough booster (didn’t even know about them) and about 4 years ago got a double whammy of H1N1 and whooping cough. I can’t imagine watching my child, or my granddaughter be as sick as I was — so please help keep yourself, your children, and your fellow human healthy. Keep up on flu shots, and immunizations. It’s a modern medicine miracle that saves lives.

      I agree. Vaccines, I believe, are a must. Flu shots is the only thing I’m not keen on… BUT this winter might have changed my mind. We all had the flu 3 times in a course of 5 months. Ugh. Thanks, Andrea, for weighing in! Have a great weekend!!

    2. I’m a health educator and I totally agree! Actually, my mother had Polio (before there was a vaccine) when she was young too. It cleared up, BUT now that she’s in her 80’s she has incurable neuropathy in both her legs and is agony every day, she also now drags one leg. It’s offal! So just because you think you may be “cured” from something – it may come back to haunt you later…get the shot!! For you, your kids, and everyone you may encounter.

  3. These look mouthwatering!! And my 7 year old will eat Nutella on just about anything, so I can’t wait to try these! Can you tell me if you’ve tried to freeze them? I was just thinking of making 10 or so up and then freezing them for a quick on the go breakfast for him! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Mandy! I have never tried freezing these because they go quite quickly around here… 😀 I think they will be fine. I’ve made other similar things with that crust and it was fine. I would just wait until they are completely cooled, at room temperature. Also, what works best for all things that I bake and freeze, is wrapping said-food in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil… it tastes like fresh out of the oven! 🙂

  4. So sorry for the babies…I hated when mine were sick and now that they are 22 and 19 I still don’t like it. I definitely get the flu shot. I work in the medical industry and see so much yuk without it. FACT: you don’t get sick from the flu shot….if you do you already had something brewing.

    PopTarts and Nutella……AWESOME> will be making these…
    Love your blog.
