5-Ingredient S’mores Puff Pastry Pop-tarts - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

in #photography4 years ago

Yes, I’m bringing the puff pastry back!



Considering the fact that they’re s’mores flavored you can probably guess what at least 3 of those ingredients are. Yep, we’re taking the pieces that make up a great s’more and stuffing them into puff pastry for a really simple treat that will convince everyone you spent hours on them, when in reality they only take about 35 minutes. Score!



So my cousins are still staying with us and I love this because they’re a great source of inspiration when I need to make something new. A few days ago I was asking which things I needed to try making while they were here and one of their request were pop-tarts. I was totally on board with that idea because, not only has it been a while since the last time I made or shared a pop-tarts recipe, but I’ve been wanting to try them with puff pastry.



A few weeks ago I shared a savory recipe using puff pastry and it turned of to be delicious, but ever since then I knew I had to share a sweet recipe. I had this idea that seemed like it might work well and I’m so happy to say these turned out to be one of the best, minimal ingredient, recipes I’ve created for the blog. Not even joking, the first batch of these was devoured in a matter of moments and the fam couldn’t have been happier to help out with being my taste testers here.



I know it’s a bit like cheating to use factory made puff pastry and the other ingredients here, but honestly, sometimes it’s just really nice to take the short-cuts. Not gonna lie, I’ve made puff pastry in my own kitchen a handful of times and, while I really appreciate the craft and technique, well, it takes a looooooong time.



Besides, I can pretty much guarantee that when you’re serving these after a fraction of that time you’ll totally agree with me that quick and easy is pretty nice.



5-Ingredient S’mores Puff Pastry Pop-tarts

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 9 pop-tarts

Take you're favorite campfire treat to the next level with these quick and easy puff pastry pop-tarts that only need 5 ingredients!


1 (17.3-ounce) package Puff Pastry Sheets (2 sheets), thawed
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1 and 1/2 cups (150g) graham cracker crumbs (about 10 full sheet graham crackers)
6 tablespoons butter, divided
2 cups (300g) semi-sweet dark chocolate chips or chunks


Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour. Unfold one of the pastry sheets and roll into a rectangle that's about 18x9-inches.Place the sheet on a parchment lined baking tray and cut into 9 (or 12 for smaller ones) rectangles and prick the centers of the pastries with a fork. Repeat the process of rolling out and cutting rectangle with the other sheet of pastry.
Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a large glass bowl and mix the graham cracker crumbs in. Add the marshmallows and about half, 1 cup, of the chocolate. Place a scoop of the mixture in the center of each rectangle, leaving about 3/4 inch of space around the edge then brush edges with water.. Take the pieces you cut from the second sheet of pastry and place them on top then press down the edges to seal. (You should have about 1/3 of the filling mixture left).
Place the tray in the fridge or freezer to chill and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 C). Once the oven is hot, remove tray from chilling and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until puffed and deep golden brown.
Allow them to cool and while they cool, melt the remaining 1 cup of chocolate with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a double boiler, over low heat,until smooth. Spread the melted chocolate over each tart and immediately sprinkle with a bit of the remaining filling mixture. Allow the chocolate to set and serve!

Dear @gringalicious,
I, @olawalium wishes to apply for the role of a taste tester in your reputable company; "kitchenlicious".
I have been watching and learning about your reputable company and i have been really blown away by it.
I have been naturally gifted when it comes to tasting meals, and i have been known to always speak objectively when it comes to giving analysis.
I have the tongue of the learned and hyper sensitive, so I detect tastes and save lot of kitchen disasters, well, I know that won't be needed in your case, since you rarely have them, but then, it's not bad to have such person on the standby, don't you think so?
I don't intend taking the job from your adorable and inspiring cousins, but I intend to learn and also help, since the more the merrier sure help.
My C.V is available on request.
I would appreciate if my request could be favourably considered. Thank you.
NB: That is one delicious looking treat. That is good life.
Yours faithfully...

again, another display of future success. I will put your CV on top of the stack - LOL

Yaaaaaaay!. Thank you. adjusting my tie. This means a lot. You have such an adorable heart.


You made me hungry
It's easy to impress me. I don't need a fancy party to be happy. Just good friends, good food, and good laughs. I'm happy. I'm satisfied. I'm content.

I am so glad you liked it @munna123, thanks so much for commenting

AHHH! I have never even entertained the idea of a puff pastry Pop-tart, but then you went and added a smores element to it. SOLD! Those little morsels look so, so tasty. I think mini peanut butter cups would be awesome in that puff pastry land too. Uh oh Gringa, you got the idea machine part of my brain dropping beats, LOL! Lovely, lovely post, pictures, and recipe as always:o) Hope you are having a lovely evening!

Haha, omg YAAAS to the pb cups and any other ideas you might want to throw in @generikat! So great to hear from you.

Wow! looks like a very decadent snack. Definitely not poptart, much better. I'm going to try this.

Splendid idea, I've always want to do Pop-Tarts, they look so delicious! Really a lovely post! Sure will follow you. Keep on blogging!

Thanks @ vamosheader!

This looks so Yumi! I'm sure it's very tasty and unusual. And although you think the dough is ready, it's not scary. We all agree to buy it at the store. Although I do know how to do it myself, but it's really a lot of trouble! My kids love this marmalade. I think they'll like your recipe. I will keep this recipe in my blog, so as not to forget to cook this sweetness. Resteem.

thanks so much for the great commenting and for the resteem @anna-mi

That spam score keeps going up... You'll learn you are unnecessarily spamming the chain eventually. But since you don't have to actually pay for the servers you clog up, not your problem, right? Kill the chain, be a part of that problem. Yep, you're helping.
