A poster on the general board was craving the long-discontinued peanut butter and Jelly pop tarts. So I found this recipe on the web for the home-made version, if interested.
If you must have that 'manufactured' taste, you could make them out of frozen pie crust following the baking instructions in the link.
Then there is prying open one of the fruit-flavored pop tarts and adding a smear of peanut butter then using a toaster oven to heat.
There are actually recipes using pop tarts or hints for spiffing them up like
- after toasting spread with butter and eat with slices of cheese on the side and a glass of orange juice ... nibble pop tart, then a taste of cheese, followed by a OJ swig
- top with ice cream - yeah, they aren't sweet enough
- a variation is pop tart parfait ... ice cream layered with crumbled pop tart.
- pop tart ice cream sandwich
- someone unsucessfully deep-fried a pop tart
Here's a recipe for pop tart trifle
If you want gluten-free pop tarts
And maybe it isn't milk that is the best drink to pair with your pop tart, but the wild berry pop tart
I loved the guy who said that one of the signs you are a bad cook is if "You consider it a culinary success if the pop-tart stays in one piece"
