Chocolate Crescent Roll

"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."

  1. Not the worst, but certainly not the best. Hard to keep together while rolling up, and impossible to transfer from working surface to baking pan. I would suggest making it on parchment paper to solve that issue. Very dry, although I didn't smother it with melted chocolate, since there is so much inside. I much prefer a recipe with cream cheese. I won't be making this again. BTW, it was done in about 15 minutes, so I can only imagine the charred brick it would have been at 30 to 45 that the recipe calls for.
  2. 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!
  3. This came out really rich and chocolatey. It was a bit too rich for me, but my kids (teens) scarfed it down and ooohed and aaaahed over it. If I make it again, I'll add even more nuts to the inside.
  4. This is my boyfriend's favorite thing that I make. I make it the way Pillsbury suggests, but nuts would be a great touch.
  5. FANTASTIC! Very easy. Mine took 40 minutes. I used Nestle chocolate and caramel swirl chips. YUMMY!
