Chocolate Crescent Rolls and 100th post giveaway!





Wow! This is my 100th post! In honor of this momentous occasion I am going to share a yummy, chocolaty recipe. You must make these soon. They are so easy and so yummy! I got this recipe from a friend of mine. She also has a blog and here is her post about these yummy Chocolate Crescents! She thought of these herself one day when wanting to have something chocolaty. She's one smart cookie because these are delicious!

I used Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. They ran these on sale really cheap with coupon awhile back and I had been debating on what to make with them. Last night I needed some chocolate and made these!

Chocolate Crescents
1 can of crescent rolls
mini chocolate chips
powdered sugar

First I unrolled the crescents into their triangles. I think the container had 8 in there.



Then I sprinkled the mini chips over the triangles, leaving the tip uncovered. I also pressed these in a bit per Jena's advice. It helps them stay in place a bit more.



Just roll up as usual and bake as directed on the can.



When they are done, sprinkle with powdered sugar.





Aren't these so pretty? They look like an elegant pastry and they're so simple! I could almost see these sitting in a bakery!

I admit it, I actually had three of these last night. At least I used the reduced fat crescents. The kids finished them off this morning for breakfast. I think I have another can of crescents and now I know what I'll make. Probably today!

Also in honor of my 100th post, I am giving away three cookbooks. These all have some very yummy recipes in them! Just leave a comment to enter! I will use the random number generator to pick a winner. Winner will be announced on Monday, October 12th. Good luck!





Happy Eating!
