I am inspired to make homemade Pop Tarts. I cannot bring myself to buy the commercially bought ones. I am almost just tempted to use the Chocolate Cookie Crust from the Pastry Bible; but I think it will not hold up to the concept of a Pop Tart. I checked out a few recipes and found this one listed. I wanted to check with the forum members to see if anyone had any experience in attempting to make it.

Crust:
3 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) cold butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup ice cold water
Fudge Filling:
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup milk (I used 2%) or heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoon unsalted butter, cup into small cubes
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Glaze/Frosting:
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons meringue powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3-6 tablespoons water
2 ounces dark or milk chocolate, melted
coarse salt or sugar, for sprinkling

Thank you.

Jack

Hi I’ve made the pop tarts from Joanne Chang’s book Flour and the crust is excellent.  I have never tried her chocolate filling rendition.  This one I have not tried.  I do find the tarts sometimes pop open.  I’ve only made them a few times so I’m still experimenting with my technique.

Thanks, Sherrie. Can you share the crust recipe with me? I think if you seal the edges and score the top of the pop tarts with a fork will minimize popping at the seams.
