The holidays are a time to indulge. And yet, they can also be a very busy time. So treat yourself and your special loved ones to a delicious treat that won't leave you slaving away for hours in the kitchen. Two ingredients is all you need to make these glorious confections, reminiscent of the chocolate-filled croissants you find in many a French bakery. They are simple, flaky, and perfectly divine.
-2 prepared pie crusts
-2 dark chocolate bars (I used Lindt with a hint of Sea Salt)

Step 1. Break the chocolate into 2-square pieces. Place three pieces of chocolate on one half of the pie crust.
Place the second half of pie crust over the top of the chocolate. Use a pizza cutter or crimped-edge knife to slice around the chocolate, leaving a 1/4″ space around each edge of the chocolate. Crimp the edges with a fork and transfer to a baking sheet.

Step 3. Bake poptarts in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 9-11 minutes, or just until the edges are golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack. Melt the extra pieces of chocolate in a small ziploc bag, snip off the corner of the bag, and drizzle over the poptarts.
Serve poptarts hot or cold, with a glass of cold milk. Recipe makes 6 small Pop-Tarts.
