Nuttier Than Charlie Sheen: Homemade Nutella Strawberry White Chocolate Pop Tarts

Oh my, you must forgive me for the title of this post. See the other day while my sweet little nuggets were at school, I was browsing through my morning blog visiting ritual and I ran across a droolicious post on nutella pop tarts. During this tasty excursion, the television was on in the background and was playing one of the many zany Charlie Sheen rants interviews.

In my head I had swirling images of nutella (hazelnuts) pop tarts and charlie sheen (crrrrr-a-zy talk) and then they combined into one thought: Sheen-nuttiness. And so I ran into the kitchen and began dreaming up all kinds of poptarty plans: maybe with strawberries and then with…..oh wait…..I can’t give it away now my salivating peeps. Maybe this is just the beginning of poptart-a-poolza!

Or shall we call it nutty-pa-looza? so-not-a-rock-star-pa-looza?

Homemade Nutella Strawberry White Chocolate Pop Tarts (yield 4-5 pop tarts)

1 package of refrigerated pie crust (preferably the non-hydrogenated oils and sludge kind or make your own)
6-7 teaspoons of Nutella
a few organic strawberries, thinly sliced

Topping:
white chocolate, melted

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

2. Bring the pie crust to room temperature and then roll out atop a lightly floured surface. I try to roll mine into a more rectangle-ish shape, then measure and score it into 3×4 rectangles. I then used my super sharp pizza cutter to cut out the rectangles.

3. Place the rectangles onto a cookie/baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spoon 1 teaspoon of nutella onto 4 (half the yield) of the rectangles, leaving about 1/4 inch of space at each edge. Place a few slices of strawberry on top of the nutella.

4. Place the 4 remaining rectangular pieces of pie crust on top of the nutella & strawberry covered pieces. Using a fork, seal the edges together gently, and bake for 13-15 minutes

5. Place 3 ‘pieces/chunks’ of a white chocolate bar into a microwave safe bowl and warm for 30 seconds on 50% power. Mix and repeat until the chocolate is melted. Transfer it to a small plastic baggy, cut a teeny tiny piece off the corner and then drizzle the chocolate over the pop tarts and serve. Listen for all the ‘Mmmmm’s’.

Is this not nutty enough? oh, you wait. I have all kinds of gooey nutty goodness on the way!

You are a riot love! I’m so with you on the so-not-a-rock-star front. I mean *yikes-o-roma* he’s very scary.

However these little gems look divine!

The title made me laugh! Is it possible to get any nuttier than Sheen at the moment? I’d much rather have a pop-tart than listen to anymore craziness.

Michelle | Bleeding Espresso March 5, 2011 at 6:30 am

These look great, and no apologies necessary for the title ;)

Ellen March 5, 2011 at 8:32 am

OH! you make me laugh!…..love the title…smiles.

They look delious , and thankfully no parts of Charlie Sheen touched them.
His father should go over with a doctor and knock him out and then place him in a santartium, padded room and all and kick those two leeches out of his house.

Those looks soooo good, and love the name of them too LOL I was wondering if you know of a nut free substitute for nutella? I’d love to try and make these with my kids but we have nut allergies in our house.

Nancy March 5, 2011 at 1:24 pm

OMG, I have to make these asap!!! I had bought some pop tarts for the boys for a snow day (they’re 6, 8, and 10 and those were the first they ever had) and they are good, but I swear I could taste the petroleum by products, shudder. I thought I could make something better, how…and here it is!!! I bow at your culinary feet!

Jennifer, I just made these for a mid day snack and not only are they delicious, they are a cinch to make! And quick too! I substituted the strawberries for thinly sliced apples, which with the nutella was a great combo :) Thanks for posting!
