Easy Recipe: Chocolate Swirl Crescent Rolls


I tried making these Chocolate Swirl Crescent Rolls awhile ago because I bought this huge multi-pack of refrigerated Pillsbury Crescent Rolls from BJ's Wholesale Club and had some extra cans sitting idly in my refrigerator.  The reason I came to make these is because I personally love chocolate croissants, but my husband thinks that they are too rich and sweet.  So, I thought I would try to make Crescent Rolls with just a hint of chocolate in them to see if he would like those better.

Recipe:  Chocolate Swirl Crescent Rolls

INGREDIENTS:
1 8oz can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 
Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
Powdered Sugar

Step 1.  Preheat oven at 375 degrees.

Step 2.  Separate your refrigerated crescent roll dough into 8 triangles.

Step 3.  Drizzle Hershey's Chocolate Syrup onto an unrolled triangle of dough.  (How much is up to you, but if you use too much chocolate syrup, it will run out onto your baking pan.)


Step 4.  Loosely roll the triangle of dough starting at the widest point.  Then curve the rolled dough into a crescent shape and place on a baking sheet.  (I like to line my baking sheet with aluminum foil because any chocolate that runs out may burn.)

Step 5.  Repeat Steps #3 and #4 with the remaining 7 triangles of dough.

Step 6.  Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until the crescents start to brown.  (Remember not to over-bake, which may cause your crescents to come out hard and possibly dry.)


Step 7.  Allow crescents to cool for 2 minutes.  Then dust them with powdered sugar.

Serve these easy-to-make Chocolate Swirl Crescents warm.  They are perfect for anyone who does not like their treats to be too sweet.  I might try to make these with some of the other flavors of Hershey's Syrup in the future.
