Berries or Bliss: You Decide

Hey, I’m being adventurous. I always thought a can of Pillsbury crescent dough was simply for that-crescent rolls. That is, until I started seeing these rather pricey dough treats that looked a lot like crescent rolls. Only these had oozing chocolate inside with chocolate drizzle outside. So, I turned on my tablet and typed in ‘chocolate filled pastry.’ Much to my surprise and craving, I found a two ingredient recipe that delighted all in my household, but especially my sweets and chocolate loving husband.

You can find the recipe on the Pillsbury site.

Simply put, unroll the dough from  1-8oz can of the refrigerated quick crescent dinner rolls. Place 1 Hershey Bliss chocolate in the center of the wide end. [Not much of a candy fan, I didn’t know what Hershey’s Bliss was but the store clerk did. I’m now a fan!] Starting at the wide end, roll the dough to the opposite end and pinch the edges to seal. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. While baking, cut 4 of the bliss squares into 4 pieces each and place in a microwave safe bowl. Heat them on 50% power in 15 second intervals until melted. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the warm crescents and allow them to cool a bit before serving.  [The Pillsbury recipe calls for milk chocolate. Next time I will try dark chocolate.] [I also mixed cinnamon and sugar and sprinkled over 3 of the crescents. They were equally as tasty.]rolls

I served these Crescent Rolls with a plate of fresh berries. Guess which plate emptied first? You’re right!
