While I was researching for future projects last week, I noticed there was a SERIOUS lack in crazy pop tart recipes online. Other than strawberry pop tarts, the only recipes I could find were samoa cookie, s’mores, and dunkaroos pop tarts. Sooo we obviously had to add to the list of pop tart flavors, and after I saw the amazing cereal donuts my Instagram pals Violet Tinder and Sprinkles For Breakfast made, I was inspired to make some CEREAL MILK pop tarts! Both cereal and pop tarts are breakfast foods so they were destined to be combined, right?! Right! We used 5 different cereals to create our recipe, but the possibilities are endless as long as you have a little bit of milk and cereal.
2 packages of pie crust
Cereal of your choosing
1 large egg yolk
2 tablespoons cereal milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
Pink food coloring
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll out your pie crust and cut out rectangles that are 3″ x 5″
2. Place two teaspoons of marshmallow fluff in the middle of each rectangle.
3. Brush your egg yolk gently along the outer edges of the rectangle. Seal the filling in by placing another rectangle on top.
4. Press down along the edges of the pop tart with a fork to make sure that the top and bottom pieces stay sealed in the oven.
5. Place the pop tarts on a baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes or until crust starts to turn golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
6. To make the cereal milk for the icing, place cereal and milk in a bowl and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Strain the cereal out of the milk.
7. In a small bowl, combine cereal milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth to make the icing. Spread the icing over a cooled pop tart and top with cereal of your choosing.
8. Color your remaining icing pink with food coloring and place in a piping bag. Cut the tip off of the piping bag and drizzle the icing over the top of your pop tart. Allow everything to dry and enjoy!
What breakfast cereal would you put on your pop tarts? I’m definitely a HUGE fan of Cookie Crisp, so I’m going to be making some of these topped with little delicious cookie cereal very soon! P.S. We also have a recipe for rainbow marbled pop tarts that you should check out!
