This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® Toaster Pastries.
Pop-Tarts are perfect for a busy mom like me. They’re so compact and easy to eat when you’re rushing out of the house with your arms full of whatever it is that you carry out in the morning. I don’t know about you but I’m always carrying my coffee cup, my giant purse and some other thing that makes maneuvering out the door and down our stairs nearly impossible. Don’t even get me started on my kid who begs me to carry her down the stairs when my arms are full of stuff and she hasn’t put her shoes on even though I’ve asked her 5000 times.
But you know what? I have no trouble getting my kid to eat Pop-Tarts in the morning. She might not like wearing shoes or wearing what I pick out for her but she never turns her nose up at Pop-Tarts. And why would she? Popt-Tarts are like dessert for breakfast! Not that I endorse serving desert for breakfast regularly but once in a while it’s a real treat!
So when Kelloggs asked me to make some ice-cream sandwiches with Frosted Strawberry Milkshake-flavored Pop-tarts following this recipe and then review them, I said, I think I can manage that. I know a few little people who will be more than willing to help me out.
First we cut out some shapes out of un-toasted Pop-Tarts with our favorite cookie cutters. The recipe says to cut the Pop-Tarts in fourths but we wanted to get creative.
Then we added some rainbow sherbet. This part was a bit messy. Not exactly kid-friendly but if you work quickly it can be done pretty easily.
Adding the sprinkles, however, was super kid-friendly. We could have sprinkled all day.
Then we covered them up in plastic wrap and stuck them in the freezer for two hours. Or nearly two hours. We sort of got impatient and pulled them out a little early.
Then we taste-tested them. I’m at a friend’s house right now so we set up the test with her daughter and my daughter. I’m happy to say both daughters took the job very seriously.
My friend’s daughter (who is 6) said, “The sherbet is perfectly tart to match the sweetness of strawberry milkshake. I find it delicious!”
My daughter said, “They’re scrumbilicious!”
I think that sums it up pretty well. We’ll make these again but probably not for breakfast. If you want to hear what other bloggers are saying, be sure you check out BlogHer.com special offers page.
