Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Chocolate Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

Cream Cheese Chocolate Crescent Rolls

Next to wonton wrappers crescent rolls are probably my second favorite food item. Not only are they delicious by themselves but you can pretty much stuff them with anything your heart desires. I’ve experimented with savory crescent rolls  in the past so this time around I was in the mood to try something sweet.

The brown sugar glaze helps sweeten the rolls so there’s no need to add a bunch of sugar in the filling. Give these a shot! They turned out quite tasty!
