Posted on

Friday is a HIGHLY anticipated day for many; I, personally, have been counting down the days since September.

What is this big event, you ask? Well, no, it’s not Black Friday (even though I cannot wait to shop my heart out).

This Friday, Netflix will release the “Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life” revival episodes!

Yes, get the champagne!

Fans across the world are thrilled to welcome back all of their favorite characters for a four-part revival of the classic, feel-good show.

Countless sugar-filled watch parties and TV-binge sessions will occur this weekend, so, naturally, I wanted to share with you friends a snack that is obviously Gilmore-approved. Where better to gain inspiration than Lorelei herself?

I present to you today: easy, no-bake Pop-Tart truffles!

This recipe was adapted and tweaked from a few similar to it, with an added flair that can only be attributed to the great Sookie! It is not for the weak-at-heart… or the diabetic; you’ve been warned!!

Here is what you will need:

  • 8 strawberry Pop-Tarts
  • 1 (16 oz) container of vanilla frosting
  • 1 (16 oz) container of white frosting
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Sugar sprinkles
  • Cookie dough scooper
  • Parchment paper
  • Toothpicks

Let’s Get Started:

  1. Crush your Pop-Tarts in a Ziplock baggie, or chop them in a food processor, and throw them in a large bowl.gilmore girls revival dessert
  2. Add 3/4 of a cup of white frosting to the bowl, and combine ingredients with a hand mixer until evenly dispersed.
  3. Using a cookie dough scooper, measure out teaspoon-sized “balls” of the mixture, rolling them between your hands if necessary. Drop them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.2
  4. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to let the truffles solidify.
  5. Microwave about three-quarters of your vanilla frosting (set the remaining frosting aside). As usual, when melting something down, you want to heat in thirty-second intervals, stirring in between until the consistency is just right (times will vary depending on the strength and power of your microwave).
  6. Add 4-6 drops of yellow food coloring to your melted frosting and stir. This gives you the base color for your truffles, resembling the “crust” of an actual Pop-Tart.
  7. Using 2 toothpicks, fully dunk each truffle into the melted, tinted frosting, and set back on the parchment paper.
  8. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator again, this time for 25-35 minutes, until the frosting is set.
  9. Microwave the remaining vanilla frosting using the same method as before, and dip the top of each truffle in, or spread the frosting on top with a knife. Place back onto the parchment paper, and top with sprinkles.5
  10. Eat immediately, or refrigerate again until ready to serve.gilmore girls revival dessert

    These Gilmore Girls Pop Tart Truffles are something Lorelei would definitely have whipped up for one of Rory #39;s Bake Sales, and you should whip them up for your A Year In The Life Revival party!
