Chocolate Crescent Roll Dessert Recipe

My college friend, Dan Stanley posted a beautiful photo on Facebook earlier this week of a "treat" dessert that he made for his 8 year old son, Sam.  Dan graciously agreed to allow me to feature his treat on my blog.

1.  Take one can of Pillsbury crescent rolls and unroll them flat 
(do not tear them apart).

2.  Spread the dough with a little butter

3.  Sprinkle with brown sugar and some mini chocolate chips.

4.  Roll the dough back up and press the seam together gently

5.  Slice into 8 portions and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Dan said that Sam loved them.  he topped them with a bit of Nutella when they were warm and said they tasted very buttery.  I don't know about you, but I LOVE Nutella!


On step 3, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar instead of the brown sugar to make cinnamon rolls.  You may also want to sprinkle some raisins over the cinnamon sugar prior to rolling the dough back up.  You could also make a powdered sugar glaze to drizzle over the top by using 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/4 cup of water. 

Thanks for sharing with us, Dan!  I'm looking forward to your next post on The Narnian Chef!


  1. Thanks for the love, Kelly. It's difficult to cut the dough roll without squishing it flat, so I use unwaxed dental floss. I slide it under the bottom for the thickness I want, cross the ends over the top and then pull tight and it easily slices through the dough.

    1. What a great tip, Dan! I do that too and it really does make easier work of the slicing without tearing up or misshaping the dough in the process. Thanks again for sharing!
