Is anyone else as obsessed with s'mores as I am?! Campfires and s'mores were one of my favorite things about fall in Tennessee. And this past weekend, I had a wee bit of a white girl craving for fall, and decided to do some baking, and something s'mores flavored just seemed like the perfect choice (a few of you even suggested it, so I guess I'm not the only one craving cooler weather!).
And ya girl loves her some poptarts. One of our first posts on A Whimsy Wonderland were our Valentine's Day Strawberry Poptarts! So basically, if I can make it into a poptart...I mean, why not? And these turned out so yummy! Like, I can almost smell the campfire. Tooting my own horn a little? Yeah, maybe. Move over Monica Gellar, I might de-throne you as best chef ever (except really, I worship her even though she's fictional, so whatever, it's fine.).
Ingredients for the actual pastries:
- Puff Pastry
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Graham Crackers
- Marshmallow Creme
- 1 egg
First, cut the puff pastry into equal squares like this:
Lay the pastry out on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Then, before you scoop your filling on, make an egg wash (literally just whisk together an egg and a splash of water) and brush the egg wash over the bottom half of the poptart!
After you've brushed the pastry with the egg wash, you can scoop on your filling! I just used one spoonful of marshmallow creme and a tablespoon of chocolate chips for each pastry!
Then lay the other half of the puff pastry on top of the half with the filling and press it together around the edges with a fork! Also, make sure to poke some holes in the top! Turns out the holes on the actual poptarts you get from the store aren't useless...it's so the filling doesn't explode out the sides while they're baking...I figured that out. ;)
Bake these babies at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until they're golden brown around the edges!
While they're baking you can make your glaze! I got this recipe for a super easy chocolate glaze from Something Swanky!
Ingredients for the glaze:
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup (I used honey instead because we don't use corn syrup!)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder
And just whisk all these ingredients together! You don't even have to heat it! So easy and I may or may not have eaten like seven spoonfuls before the poptarts were done. Who's judging though?! When the poptarts are done, drizzle the glaze over them, and then crush up some graham crackers to use as sprinkles!
Just a fair warning, they are super messy and crumbly and delicious and wonderful and if you eat one, you might just walk around in a chocolate-marshmallow trance and not realize you have chocolate sauce on your nose until you're walking your dog and a random stranger says something to you. But again, who's judging?
Peace & Poptarts, y'all.
