When I was growing up, pop tarts were one of those things like Hamburger Helper that my brother and I always begged for when we went to the supermarket. My mom always resisted, but often caved in to our requests. I’m not exactly sure what I found so fantastic about them and I can tell you unequivocally that the recipe below kicks their butts! They were surprisingly easy to make, especially since I did a very simple filling. You could get creative with fruit, nut and/or chocolate fillings, but I wanted to do something as similar to original pop tarts as possible.
