Peanut Butter and Mini Chocolate Bar Centered Crescents…

Tags: , ,

Desserts

Sometimes I think I’ve lost my mind with some of the things I end up making in the kitchen. As I was strolling through the grocery store yesterday, starving of course, I got the bright idea of rolling some crescents with mini Hershey’s Chocolate Bars and a dollop of Peanut Butter. This was even after my husband and I worked out together. I’ve got major sweet tooth issues, that’s for sure.

As crazy as these sound, the end result is pure sweet flaky fabulousness! I don’t encourage you to eat these babies everyday, but do try them sometime. They were even better than I imagined them to be. It only takes about 10 minutes of prep time and they are ready to bake. 15 minutes later, you’ve got these beautiful chocolate filled crescents that are truly to die for! Enjoy!!


Here’s what’s stuffed inside these bad boys. Hershey’s Miniatures on top of a dollop of peanut butter. Can I just tell you how much I love these treats!! Simple and so good! (Picture from here)


Peanut Butter and Mini Chocolate Bar Centered Crescents

1 can of Pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls, 8 count (do you love that I got a reduced fat for these treats!)
8 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
8 Hershey’s Mini Chocolate Bar variety
1 egg white whisked with 1 teaspoon water
3 Tablespoons turbinado sugar (or any granulated sugar will do)

1/2 Cup chocolate chips, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll crescent rolls and place a dollop of peanut butter onto center of widest end of triangle. Top each dollop of peanut butter with a mini chocolate bar then roll up each crescent starting at widest end. Brush each of the rolled crescents lightly with egg wash then sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 minutes or until crescents are golden brown and cooked through. Melt chocolate chips in microwave until smooth, place into a ziplock baggie, snip one small corner with scissors then drizzle melted chocolate over each crescent. Enjoy warm with milk!!

Here’s my little bugaboo enjoying Mommys crescents. He happily posed for some pics with these in hand! Have a great rest of the week and weekend!!! See you all soon.

    Mamawags says:

    Those definately look great… but think about this: While up at a girl's camp for our church some adult leaders in the kitchen were making scones for dinner. Then, one super smart lady came up with the idea of putting chocolate and a marshmallow inside of a scone. Then we deep fried them… and, oh man, a little piece of heaven– we all indulged in that sweet dessert! It was too die for :)

    Thanks for all the great recipes! We made these this past weekend and loved them. My 3 year old helped me, we love anything she can help make, mostly she loves to wear her apron. Then when they were done, we wrote everyone's name on top with the melted chocolate chips. Such a fun kids' treat. Keep the great ideas coming, some of us need other people to look at the ingredients and get the good ideas for us!

    Love this idea!! What a great quick and easy dessert. I usually always have these ingrediants on hand (not always mini bars but i usually have a full sized hershey bar around for smores…that would work well to break off pieces instead. I have to try this! Thanks!

    I’ve done a savory something like this with the garlic butter crescents and fresh mozzarella. A great lighter textured alternative to garlic cheesy bread.
