In almost 24 hours I am going to be on live television. Seriously.

I have no idea what I am going to wear or say….and I’m pretty sure the producer over at Good Morning Jacksonville has no idea what she has gotten herself into. Sure, I’m great on the blog…but give me a big camera sending out a live feed, a sharp knife and my foot in mouth tendencies… well I am sure it’s going to go splendidly. I’m just kidding of course, I am sure it is going to go great! Show time is at 8:50 a.m. and I have planned to start off my morning with a mimosa and a xanax to get things good and rolling by the time I go on. ๐Ÿ˜€

While I may not have it all figured out just yet, I have decided that I will talk like Julia Child and only refer to myself in third person. Oh, and I have decided I am going to make Valentine’s Day treats. Considering VDay is on Tuesday, it seemed only fitting. So for the first segment (Saturday, 8:50 am, GMJ- be there) I am going to make these Strawberry Nutella Poptarts! Aren’t they adorable? And you will never guess how easy they are….

breakfast, homemade, poptart, kid, kids, valentine's day, vday, v-day, valentines day, heart, strawberry, jam, preserves, nutella, chocolate, pie dough, pie crust, pie

First, take some store bought pie dough. Sure you could make your own, if you wanna be an over achiever or whatever.

Roll out the pie dough till it’s pretty thin. Then cut it into 2.5 x 3.5 inch rectangles.

On one pie dough rectangle, spread a layer of Nutella. Then spread a layer of Strawberry Jelly.

Cut a strawberry slice into the shape of a heart (slice a strawberry lengthwise into slices and then curve out the stop with a paring knife to create the heart shape).

Using the strawberry heart as a pattern, cut out a heart shaped hole in the second piece of dough.

Place the strawberry in the center of the nutella/strawberry jam mixture. Top with the second piece of dough with the heart shaped whole.

Using a fork, seal the edges. Brush the pie dough with an egg wash (1 egg yolk + a splash of quality H2O –any Waterboy fans??) and then sprinkle the top with a heavy dose of coarse sugar.

Bake at 350ยฐF for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes and serve!

So now that you already know what I am going to make, are you still going to come watch me make a fool of myself? If they don’t throw me out after the first segment (at 8:50 a.m.), I will be making Red Velvet Cupcakes at 9:50 a.m. So if any of you are in Jacksonville, or the surrounding areas, make sure and DVR me (we both know you won’t be up that early on a Saturday).

If you aren’t, don’t worry! There will be clips posted online…and I promise to share them as long as you promise to laugh with me –not at me– when I drop everything, cut off a finger and get bleeped out on live tv.

breakfast, homemade, poptart, kid, kids, valentine's day, vday, v-day, valentines day, heart, strawberry, jam, preserves, nutella, chocolate, pie dough, pie crust, pie

Strawberry Nutella Poptarts are a sweet snack or breakfast that would be perfect for Valentine's Day. Give these homemade pastries filled with nutella and fresh strawberries a try--especially if you've got kiddos!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 42 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crust
  • 6 heaping teaspoons Nutella
  • 6 heaping teaspoons strawberry jelly
  • 2 large strawberries, sliced lengthwise and carved into hearts
  • coarse sugar (or granulated sugar)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water. Set aside.
  3. Roll out pie crust till it’s pretty thin (about 1/16th of an inch thick). Cut into 2.5 inch x 3.5 inch rectangles, re-rolling the dough as needed. You should end up with 12 rectangles.
  4. Take 6 of the rectangles and cut out a heart in the center, using the strawberries carved into hearts as a guide. Set aside.
  5. On each of the 6 remaining rectangles, spread 1 heaping teaspoon of Nutella, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edges. Then top the Nutella with a layer of strawberry jam, again making sure to leave a 1/2 inch border.
  6. Place a strawberry carved heart on top of the strawberry jam layer, in the center of the rectangle. Top with the pie dough with the heart carved out of the center.
  7. Seal the edges with the prongs of a fork and brush with egg wash mixture. Sprinkle heavily with coarse sugar.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool for 5 minutes and then serve!

    Dis-aster. The bottoms did not get baked all the way. Edges were not as clean and cute as the photos. Strawberries dry up and shrivel in the oven. The nutella drips down the front if they are not dried enough before placing in the cute little sugar bags I bought. And the egg wash eh. I used water and egg white, but it dis-solved the colored cute sugars.

  3. Megan | The DelightFULL Dash

    These are absolutely darling! Strawberry season is almost in full swing, and I’m definitely going to try these!

  4. Kara

    Thanks! I knew it was a long shot but I still had to ask ๐Ÿ™‚ Gonna bake ’em today. Cant wait to see how they turn out.

  5. Kara

    HI! I am making a bunch of my moms favorite sweets and sending them to her in a super cute care package for mothers day. Searching for strawberries and nutella, I came across this recipe. Im curious, will these last wrapped up carefully in a two day shipment?

  6. Nickie

    Happy Weekend!

  7. Abbe

    Ever thought of rolling the coarse sugar into the pie dough as opposed to sprinkling on top? Might offer a more cohesive sweetness.

    1. Jessica

      Sorry about that, but I’m sure you can understand that autocorrect gets the best of all of us and I have to be my own editor. Thanks.

  8. MJ

    Love this! I am having a tea party, combination proper and Mad Hatter. These will be the perfect representation for the Queen!

  9. Faith

    Thanks for a great recipe. I just made these for my hubby. He loved it. Mine was soft from the bottom. How to avoid that? I used foil on the bake sheet, 350 degree oven for 15 mins, and 5-10 min on cooling rack. Do suggest what I can do different so they are crunchy (light brown) on the bottom as well… otherwise these were heavenly.

    1. Jessica

      Because of the way they bake, there isn’t much we can do to give them a crispier bottom when laid flat on a pan. However, I think if you put a metal cookie rack in there and laid them on that, the air/heat would be able to flow above and below…creating a crispier bottom! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Ellen

    I made these this morning for my husband for Valentine’s Day & they were delicious!! They were also very pretty until they fell apart when I tried to pry the bottoms loose from the tin foil I cooked them on. Next time I’ll try parchment paper underneath like pictured in the recipe. But overall, they were a success!

  11. Abby

    I woke up early this morning (Valentine’s Day) in order to bake these for my sweetheart before his 9 am final exam. He gave me the hugest hug before he even tasted them! We even packed a second pop tart for him to bring as a snack during his test.
    Great quick & easy recipe, especially for Valentine’s Day morning! Thanks for all the wonderful recipe ideas!

  12. sheri grennille

    i reroll pillsbury pie dough all the time to make mushroom turnovers and just did it to make these as well – worked fine. i managed to only have to make two from rerolled dough as i sort of squared it off as i rolled it thinly.
    i didn’t add any jam or fruit, used a bit of leftover french toast egg mix as the wash and had turbinado sugar. they are delicious!!!

  13. Des

    All I seem to be able to find around here is Pilsbury pre-rolled pie crust…can I gather that up and reroll it, or is that going to mess with the consistency of the crust? ๐Ÿ™

  14. Abbey

    These are so cute and look SO delicious!!!!!! I can’t wait to make them for valentine’s day! Do you think that they reheat well? Also, would they be fine to sit overnight in an airtight container? Thanks! Again, this looks amazing. <3

    1. Jessica

      To be honest, they really are best fresh and warm out of the oven. They do not keep very well. However, you can put them together the night before and refrigerate them till the next morning. Then all you have to do is pop them in the oven!

  15. Gabe @ Modern Plants

    OMG these look absolutely amazing! I’ve always been a poptart fan, but wow these are like a dream. I can’t wait to surprise my wife and kids with these…it will blow them away. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Sheena

    Love these! Can they be frozen at all because I would love to bake them and then pop the into the microwave in the mornings for my girls!

  17. cookingrookie

    I just have to add this to my Nutella board not to forget about this recipe. I hope it’s ok with you ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Kara

    I made these for myself and my boyfriend over the weekend and they came out fantastic!! I did one batch with just strawberry and I think we prefered those the best. I can’t wait to try other flavors like blueberry and raspberry!!! Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!!!

  19. Hannah

    these look amazing!!! could you freeze them before baking?? my husband is a huge convenience food junkie and i am trying to find food to make that he can just pull out of the freezer and cook when he gets midnight munchies =p

    1. Jessica

      I am not sure they would go from the freezer to the oven well. I know you can freeze pie dough…but when it’s filled and brushed with egg wash…I’m just not sure it would taste right.

      You could always try it out though! You never know!

  20. Kim

    I’m not sure if I should be mad at you or be thanking you, because I have found a new food addiction! Thanks for posting (Grrr!) ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Olivia

    I would never have to thought to make home made poptarts….which i’m sure surpass the store bought ones ten fold. I’m super excited to try these.

  22. Mindy at Grateful for Grace

    Just served these to my six kiddos in celebration of Valentine’s Day and they were a HUGE hit! We are all smitten. Seriously.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Hope your t.v. segment went wonderfully!

  23. Kelly

    These are wonderful! I made them, but with nutella and banana and another with peanut butter and banana (with honey on top) because my friend doesn’t like strawberries and I only had banana’s on hand. There were fast, easy, and super tasty! A fantastic recipe!! I’m making the strawberry ones for myself next time!

  24. Heather S.

    Made these for the family this weekend and it was all we could do NOT to eat them all at once! =) Yummy and super cute! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

  25. Paula

    I wish I could get your local TV Station, I’d definitely be watching. Hoping the segments went well. Your pop tarts look delicious.

  26. raquel from Florida

    Oh Jessica! We just bake these tarts OMG!!! They are delicious! We used puff pastry sheets and the result was fantastic. My fellow chef at home (my 13 years old daughter) helped me and she used a heart cookie cutter to make the hearts in the tart and also to cut the strawberry hearts (her idea). Thank you again for the recipe, I’ll watch your video later.

  27. Ann

    Congratulations, Jessica! I also watched you and you were terrific! I think you did a GREAT job and your pop tarts are stunning! BRAVO, girlfriend!

  28. Crystal (chaoticlilshadow)

    I’m so sad I won’t get to see you on TV! I saw this recipe yesterday, and have been dreaming of it since! I can’t wait to get to try it!

  29. Foodiewife

    Congrats, Jessica! I just watched your video feed, and I think you did great. What great exposure for your lovely blog. If I was asked to do the same I think I’d freeze. I’m not comfortable with being photographed. You pulled it off like a pro. These are quite adorable, and certainly very easy to make. I’d love one…or two. Okay, three, of these.

  30. Windy

    These are so cute and easy! Definitely making some of these for the kiddos and hubs. Grats on the tv spot!! I’m thinking we won’t be able to see it out of your area though, so I’ll have to wait for the clips.

    Have a blast!

  31. Marsha @ The Harried Cook

    Congrats on the TV opportunity! I’m sure you’ll do great! ๐Ÿ™‚ How adorable and delicious are these pop tarts! My little girl would go crazy for them! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Joanne

    AHHH!!! This is SO major! You’re a rock star/celebrity. For sure.

    And you’re a POP TART with NUTELLA celebrity. That’s like…golden.

  33. Nicole, RD

    Just be yourself and you’ll be great…people will love you and you will be famous! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have fun! And Um….my husband would do just about anything for one of these. I thin I ought to consider how I can barter…assuming I could tackle this one.

  34. ErinsFoodFiles

    Girlfriend you have outdone yourself! These are adorable! Again, magazine worthy. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope your tv segment went well!!!

  35. Lauren at Keep It Sweet

    If you are even a fraction as awesome as you are on your blog you will be great! I hope you post the video for the rest of us to see:-)

  36. Julie

    Your pop-tarts look soooo good, its hard not to run to the kitchen and make some immediately.

    You are going to be great in your TV gig. Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths just before you go live, then open your eyes And SMILE~

  37. Amber | Bluebonnets & Brownies

    Wayyyyyyy cute! My sister banned poptarts from her house a while ago because of the HFCS. I’m going to make these for my niece and nephew, I think their heads might explode!

  38. DessertForTwo

    Lots of things to say!

    1. These are so ridiculously adorable, I might pee!
    2. Congrats on the TV debut! You’ll do soooo good! I just know it!
    3. Let’s drink mimosas and pop xanax afterwards to celebrate!

  39. Lisa [With Style and Grace]

    That’s so exciting!!! Good luck my dear, you’re doing to be amazing – no doubt about it! ps. omg those are the cutest things ever!!

  40. Emilia

    I have a pretty big obsession with both poptarts and nutella; perfect recipe for me! The addition of the strawberry is adorable. Good luck on tv! ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. thelittleloaf

    Congratulations on your TV debut! I doubt I’ll be able to watch it here in the UK but I’m definitely making this recipe. Yum! (maybe you could post a clip to YouTube?) ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. Alaina @ mommysmenu

    Goodluck on Saturday! You’ll do fab!!

  43. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

    I was JUST in my fridge looking at a roll of refrigerated pie dough wondering what to make with it. And I just so happen to have Nutella, strawberry jam AND fresh strawberries as well. It’s like these were meant to be in my kitchen right now. To turn on the oven at almost 10pm?? Tempting.
