Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts and a contest *contest closed*

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Pop-Tarts®.

IMG_0009We are having so much fun learning how to use our Pop-Tarts in creative ways. We again went with the dessert theme and decided to make S’mores using Pumpkin Pie flavored Pop-Tarts! Here’s what Ethan and I did to make our S’mores.

IMG_0012

First, with mom’s help, we cut two Pop-Tarts in half.


IMG_0015

Then put a big puffy marshmellow on two of the halves.

IMG_0020

Have Mom microwave the marshmellows on top of the Pop-Tarts for 20-30 seconds.

IMG_0022

Or until they get nice and puffy like this. (Watch out, the marshmellows and Pop-Tarts will be pretty warm!)


IMG_0024 Next, slather some cream cheese on top of the two remaining halves of Pop-Tarts.

IMG_0028 Then sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the cream cheese.

IMG_0031

Here you can see what the Pop-Tarts look like with cream cheese and cinnamon on them.


IMG_0033

Then smush the two halves together! (we later decided it was better to put cream cheese and cinnamon on both halves, then add and cook the marshmellow )

IMG_0038

Doesn’t it look good?

IMG_0040

Doncha want a bite?

IMG_0041

“Don’t mind if I do!”

IMG_0043

“It’s good, Mom!”

IMG_0046

“Wanna share?”

(He didn’t.)

Oh my goodness..thank goodness they only make them one time a year. My favorite holiday treat is Cashew Nougats, they are the only store bought cookies I can eat and sadly, I do eat all I can get!
Those Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts look great; I think they'd be a hit with a hot bowl of oatmeal for breakfast!

Well without even taking a breath I know the answer to this is OF COURSE peppermint ice cream WITH peppermint Jo Jo'c crumbled on top.

Now if Pop Tarts would come up with a peppermint mocha flavor I would swooooon.

I'm pretty sure I could put any flavor poptart in the microwave with a big marshmallow, and YUM! That's a cool idea, I never thought of it. Fave holiday treat would have to be pumpkin pie with whipped cream.
