As much as I love cooking, I cannot afford to spend hours in the kitchen! Between work, school, extracurricular activities and house cleaning, I need easy and fast recipes to bake! I usually manage to prepare the main meal in around 30 minutes! But I don’t have enough time to bake a delicious treat for the kids during the week! I manage to do it during the weekend. That’s why I am always looking for easy treats for kids to try!
Recently, I got the opportunity to try the Pillsbury Chocolatey Crescents! My family is already a fan of the regular Pillsbury Crescents. They were excited to try the new version!
Pillsbury Chocolatey Crescents: Easy treats for kids to bake
The first time we tried these easy treats was on a Monday evening after dinner. As soon as the kids noticed the package in my grocery bag they wanted to try it. They had to wait until we finished our meal!
The crescents are easy to prepare and were ready within 15 minutes, including baking! They come in a signature tube with a chocolate pouch! Make sure to take out the roll and the chocolate from the fridge few minutes before starting. The chocolate will be easier to spread.
Steps to prepare the Pillsbury Chocolatey Crescents
- Unfold the dough. Separate it along the perforated lines! I love this feature because it is easy to separate, even for kids.
- Spread the chocolate on the dough. The instructions recommend spreading it in the shape of the number 8 but the kids were generous on the spread
- Fold the crescents! The kids had fun doing this and of course tasting the chocolate spread in between.
- Cook for 8 to 10 minutes and then spread the remaining chocolate!
This easy treat is so delicious! We almost fought over the last crescent roll! The kids enjoyed that evening! We prepared them again the next morning! It was great as part of the breakfast. The kids enjoyed it after school too!
