Valentine’s Treats! Nutella & strawberry frosted pop-tarts

IMG_5536

Happy belated Valentines Day! I know I’m a little late, but believe me, this recipe is worth the wait! I’m not usually huge on baking, but for holidays I can’t resist making adorable, cheesy, holiday color-themed treats. Plus, I mean, these pop-tarts are super delicious and super easy to make, so what’s not to love? My boyfriend and I have a weird obsession with Nutella. If you’re reading this I’ll go ahead and assume you’re thinking, “Oh, me too!”,  just to make myself feel a little better about my spoon-licking-eat-it-straight-from-the-jar-with-my-fingers obsession. BUT, the beauty about Nutella (besides everything) is that it pairs nicely with fruit flavors. So I decided to get a little craft in the kitchen and pair Nutella with strawberry preserves. This recipe is a little different from my pumpkin pop-tart recipe from Fall because I did not make a filling, per-say. But it turned out just as delicious!

Fill. I did not put a ton of filling in mine, but later I kind of wish I would’ve!

Place the top and bottom together, melt butter and brush it along the top, using fork prongs seal the 2 pieces together.
