There’s something about pop tarts that all kids just love! Their frosted crust with delicious fruit (or brown sugar or chocolate) filling is a scrumptious treat. Pop tarts are often thought of as a breakfast food, but they can be good any time of day.
This quick and easy pop tart recipe – with only four ingredients – is so simple that you and your kids can make them together! If your kids are anything like mine, they will be so excited about these Homemade Pop Tarts!
My kids love to snack – especially on things that are fruity. They also enjoy getting to help prepare food in the kitchen. I welcome their assistance because I want to nurture a love of making food for our family, and this recipe is simple enough that even my five-year-old son can help.
With only fifteen minutes of preparation and ten minutes of baking, this recipe is quick! (Be prepared: The homemade pop tarts will probably disappear faster than the time it took to make them!)
We love fruit flavors like strawberry, blueberry, and apple, but you could also make chocolate, brown sugar, or even s’mores homemade pop tarts!
