Refrigerated crescents are easy to pick up at the store, easy to store until needed and easy to throw in the oven when you want some bread to go along with your meal. They’re pretty fabulous that way. But what I love more are the “new” things I have found to do with them. I actually shared this particular recipe with you about six months ago but, because it’s so fabulous and I have made it several times since, I decided to share it again. And…this time, I took pictures to share with you.
So, let’s get started making an easy and quick sweet treat that you will be pleasantly surprised with. Here’s what you need:
- 1 package of refrigerated crescent rolls
- About 1/2-3/4 cup of milk chocolate chocolate chips
- About 40-50 mini marshmallows
Here’s what you need to do:
- Unroll the can of crescents onto your clean counter top, or a cutting board if you prefer. (I only take half off at a time.)
- Separate the triangles from each other as gently as you can. If there is a tear, it’s okay. You can try to stretch the dough to fill the hole or just leave it. (You will roll up the crescents in the end, so you can try to strategically roll them up to cover the hole so the contents don’t fall out.)
- Take a small handful of your chocolate chips and lay them out onto the large portion of the triangle, trying to keep it close to the center.
- Take 5-6 mini marshmallows and place them on top of your chocolate chips. (These sometimes have trouble staying on, so you may want to do this step in conjunction with the next one.)
- Roll each of the crescent rolls up, starting from the larger side of the triangle, and folding up the edges of the large side of the triangle (this will help keep the contents inside better) and lightly pinch it together.
- Place the rolled up crescents on a greased cookie sheet (trust me, you want to grease it — the marshmallow often leaks out and will be very difficult to remove if you don’t).
- (If you only did half of the crescents, do the other half repeating your steps.)
- Bake according to the package directions, both at the same heat and length of time.
And there you have your delectable treat! Your kids will love it, you will love it, your party guests will love it — the only thing that won’t is your diet. I certainly recommend eating these warm. They are best fresh from the oven. Don’t take my word for it, though. Try it yourself! And, please come back and let me know what you think.
