Pop-Tarts, Not Just For Breakfast
This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® Toaster Pastries.*
When my oldest son was about 5 years old he saw a commercial for Pop-Tarts on television. It was a commercial where the Pop-Tarts were toasting in a pop up toaster and when they were done the pop-tarts flew out of the top of the toaster and onto a plate or the children’s hands, I can’t remember the details now.
What I do remember with absolute clarity, however, is that from that moment on my son wanted a pop up toaster and Pop-Tarts for Christmas. We had a toaster oven, but that was wholly unacceptable for the toasting of Pop-Tarts.
That year as my son sat on Santa’s lap he loudly told him exactly what he wanted– a white pop-up toaster and a package of Pop-Tarts. Santa looked over at me with a quizzical look. I shrugged back at him. He probably thought the poor child was deprived.
My son is now 15 and he still tallks about how excited he was that Christmas morning.
I had never really thought about using Pop-Tarts for anything other than what they were. But BlogHer approached me with the opportunity to make a fun recipe which uses Pop-Tarts and then make up a recipe of my own. Always up for a challenge, I said sure why not. I mean, who doesn’t love Pop-Tarts?
And that is how I found myself making this recipe with a half gallon of Neopolitan ice cream, strawberry Pop-Tarts, and sprinkles.
Step One: Remove Pop-Tarts from packaging and set frosting side down.
Step Two: Spread softened ice cream onto the back of one Pop-Tart.
Step Three: Place second Pop-Tart on top.
Step Four: Roll the edges of the ice cream in the sprinkles.
Step Five: Place your newly created Pop-Tart ice cream sandwiches in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
You might be tempted to skip this step. I know I was. Or more accurately I was not up to listening to the whining of children who wanted to eat them riiiiiiiiiiighht noooooow. So I let them eat them without refreezing.
Learn from me, people. It was a melty mess. One they enjoyed, but still.
A delicious melty mess.
