Chocolate Filled Crescent Rolls

14 04 2012
I have a confession to make.  I have one of the biggest sweet tooth’s ever.  No, seriously.  I was inspired to create these after walking into a local bakery and seeing theirs.  Of course I am not going to spend the money to buy these delicious treats when I can go home and create them myself.  Okay, okay… so I bought five a few and ate them on the spot.  Regardless, I think my version of these are just as good, if not better, than any bakery, and they are a hell of a lot cheaper!  I hope you enjoy.  Even if you don’t, I did!  😉

Ingredients:

  • 1 tube of refrigerated crescent roll dough.
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chunks
  • 2 TBSP butter, melted
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 TBSP water
  • powdered sugar for topping

Directions:

  1. Open tube of crescent rolls, separated into individual triangles and lay them out flat onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  2. Brush crescent roll dough with melted butter.  Sprinkle chocolate chunks on top.  Personally I think I used too much, so I wouldn’t recommend a heavy sprinkle.
  3. Roll up as you would a plain crescent roll.  Mix water into egg white and whisk until bubbles start to form on top.  Brush crescent rolls with egg white.
  4. Bake in oven, preheated to 375 degrees, for 15 minutes or until crescent rolls are a golden brown color and slightly  crispy to the touch
  5. Take out of oven and sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
  6. Let crescent rolls cool slightly, but serve before the chocolate hardens.  I suppose you could microwave them or reheat them in the oven, but I didn’t try that so don’t quote me.
Enjoy!
