Chocolate Crescents

Chocolate Crescents, Farmers Wife Original Recipe.
Hey y'all!! I'm so sorry I've been gone so much the last week. It's been a long week, and even longer weekend. I'm going to keep this short as I'm not feeling well still, turns out all those migraines I was having were a symptom of a nasty middle ear infection with a bad blockage, which landed me in the ER early Saturday morning. I'm still on some heavy drugs and in some pain so let's get to the recipe!

Saturday night we were just exhausted, the Hubby and I had been up since 2:30 am and the little sous chef from about 4:00 am, with just some short naps in the afternoon. I wasn't really feeling up to cooking, but we were all hungry. So I used up the last of the hot dogs I had on hand, split them in the middle and put cheese inside and rolled them up in crescent rolls, not fancy, super easy and totally delicious. But I was left with 4 leftover pieces of crescent dough. Now I debated a few things to do with these, but in the end I decided I wanted chocolate. And after the day we'd had I knew we all deserved a little chocolate, and Voila! These were incredible! Super duper easy, totally hit the spot and I can't wait to try these again!

Ingredients: 1 tube makes 8 rolls
A Tube of Crescent Dough (I used the reduced fat kind)
8 Tablespoons Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Butter
Sugar

Directions:
Heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with cookie spray. Separate out each section of dough, and place one tablespoon of chocolate on the the widest part. Roll them up, and pinch together the ends to keep any chocolate from escaping. Brush the tops with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake about 15-20 minutes, until golden. Serve Warm.

Review:
These were so easy, and incredibly delicious! Next time I will try drizzling the tops with melted chocolate! 4 stars.

    Sinus/Ear infections are no fun, but your chocolate crescents must have made you feel a little better for the moment.
