Chocolate Crescent Roll

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by newspapergal

This is a delicious, simple dessert recipe that I adapted with Pillsbury crescent rolls. I whipped it up one weeknight, and it baked while we ate dinner. It's best served warm, and it's moist & chocolate-y. This could also be a nice sweet treat for a brunch.

Rich, ooey and gooey and a touch of cinnamon too. My 12 yr old daughter (Abbey) made this with just a bit of guidance from me. We thought it was very yummy. (It was done in 30 minutes, so watch carefully). Thanks for this simple, yummy treat!
