Ingredients

  • One 8-ounce refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 1 1/2-ounce plain milk chocolate bars, broken into small pieces
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons sliced almonds

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into triangles. 
Brush with the butter. Arrange the candy bar pieces evenly over the triangles and roll up from the wide end.

Place the point side down on a greased baking sheet and curve the ends slightly. Brush with the egg and sprinkle with the almonds. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Candy Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Candy Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
