Pop Tart Eclair Cake


Have you seen the boxes of Red Velvet Pop Tarts in the store? I am a sucker for red velvet, so I bought several boxes. Since I had so many, I thought I should make something with them instead of just mindlessly eating them from the box. I eventually decided to try them with my eclair cake recipes.

I followed the same format as the other eclair cake, but I  swapped out the graham crackers with the Pop Tarts. I had my fingers crossed that the Pop Tarts would soften enough to make this like the other cakes. It was pure torture waiting on this cake to set up.

Well, it turned out DELICIOUS! I couldn't stop eating this. It is surprising light and easy to eat a ton of. We both gave this two thumbs up! We loved the red velvet and cheesecake flavor combination, but you can use any flavor of Pop Tarts and pudding for this dessert. I am already brainstorming other flavor combinations! What flavors would you use?





Pop Tart Eclair Cake
serves 10-12
(Printable Recipe)


  • 3 boxes Red Velvet Pop Tarts
  • 2 (3 1/4-ounce) boxes cheesecake instant pudding
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed

Spray the bottom of a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with 1 box of Pop Tarts. In bowl of an electric mixer, mix pudding with milk; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.

Fold in whipped topping. Pour half the pudding mixture over Pop Tarts. Place another layer of whole Pop Tarts on top of pudding layer. Pour remaining half of pudding mixture over Pop Tarts and cover pudding with another layer of Pop Tarts, frosting side up.

Refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.

  5. Did the pop tarts end up soft like the graham crackers do, and did you put the bottom layer of pop tarts frosting down or up?

  6. Yum! I put Red Velvet Pop Tarts into cheesecake bars (crushing the Pop Tarts like you would cookies to make a crust, then mixing chunks into the cheesecake), I'll need another box or two for this.
