Pop Tarts with Peanut Butter and Fluff

Is it just me, or does back-to-school still thrill me as an adult? When autumn arrives, I’m wanting lunchables, fruit snacks, and peanut butter and fluffs. So when we were brainstorming ideas for nostalgic meals, I knew we had to create a pop tart, and it had to be a peanut butter and fluff pop tart. In a buttery pop tart, these handmade pop tarts capture all of the taste of a salty-sweet peanut butter and fluff sandwich. They take a bit more effort, but if you’re looking for a fun baking activity to channel your inner second grader, this is it.

What is the difference between peanut butter and fluff?

First and foremost, if you’ve never had one, please accept my heartfelt sympathies. Every day while I was in primary school, I housed a fluffernutter. There isn’t any crust–duh. Two pieces of fluffy white bread, slathered in peanut butter and topped with a large helping of marshmallow fluff…oh my goodness, they were delicious.

And we can’t forget about pop tarts when we’re talking about nostalgic delicacies. One of my favorite things to cook is homemade pop tarts. Of course, as a youngster, I devoured store-bought pop tarts in all flavors: strawberry, s’mores, brown sugar cinnamon… pardon me while I wipe the drool from my forehead. In these handmade pop tarts, the salty-sweet combo of marshmallow and creamy pb is absolutely divine.

Make your own pop tarts with these helpful hints.

Last but not least, I’d like to share some of my techniques for producing handmade pop tarts. They’re a bit time consuming and demand some accuracy, but with these pointers, they’ll be a snap!

  • Make the dough in order to make pop tarts the night before. Allow it to rest in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake. This will assist the dough in really settling together while also saving time.
  • Cut out the pop tarts using a template. The most time-consuming component of creating homemade pop tarts is cutting out each square and assembling them. To make cutting out consistent rectangles simple, I prefer to use a rectangular spatula or construct a tiny cardboard cut out!
  • Allow the pop tarts to cool completely before frosting them. If you attempt to frost your pop tarts with homemade marshmallow fluff before they’ve completely cooled, the fluff will melt. Before frosting your pop tarts, make sure they’re entirely cool.

Ingredients

in order to make pop tarts

  • 2 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
  • 3 tbsp. sugar (granulated)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes, chilled
  • 4–5 tablespoons vodka or water, ice cold
  • 1 cup peanut butter, creamy
  • a single egg (for egg wash)

for the frosting made with marshmallows

  • 2 beaten egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
  • a sprinkle of salt
  • a quarter teaspoon of cream of tartar

Instructions

for the pop tarts

  1. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Pulse in the butter until it approaches corse meal in texture.
  2. Pour in the ice water (or vodka, if using), and pulse until everything is just blended. Add another tablespoon of water if the dough is too dry and won’t come together.
  3. Form the dough into two disks of similar size and cover each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour, but up to two days.

to put the pop tarts together

  1. Take one of the doughs out of the refrigerator. Flour a clean work surface generously. Roll out the dough into a 10′′x13′′ rectangle as fast as possible.
  2. Cut your dough into a precise 9′′x12′′ rectangle using a ruler and a long knife. Then, cut your rectangle into nine 3′′x4′′ pieces.
  3. Transfer the rectangles to a large, parchment-lined baking sheet with a spatula, leaving at least 1 inch between them. Place the baking sheet in the freezer after all 9 rectangles have been transferred onto it, and then repeat the rolling and cutting procedure with the other half of the dough.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350°F after all of your dough has been sliced.
  5. Taking the baking sheet out of the freezer is a good idea. Apply an egg wash to the edges of each of your 9 pop tart bases (this will help the dough to stick together).
  6. In the middle of each pop tart base, spread a spoonful of peanut butter. Spread it out a little, but not too far from the edges.
  7. Place the leftover dough on top of the pop tart’s contents. To bind the dough together, softly press down on the edges. Then, using a fork, make indentations all the way around the pop tart.
  8. Brush the remaining egg wash over the pop tarts, then poke a hole in the top with a fork. Allow to cool entirely after baking for 30 minutes.

for the frosting made with marshmallows

  1. Make the marshmallow frosting while the pop tarts are cooling. Fill a big sauce pan with a few inches of water to create a double boiler. In a heat-safe dish, combine the egg whites and sugar and whisk rapidly over a double boiler until foamy and the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Fill a stand mixer with the egg and sugar mixture and the whisk attachment. Combine the cream of tartar, salt, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk until the mixture is shiny and medium firm peaks form.
  4. Spread a generous dollop of marshmallow fluff over the top of each pop tart using an offset spatula. Toast the tops of your pop tarts using a blow torch if desired! Enjoy!
