Chocolate-Filled Crescents Recipe

Chocolate-Filled Crescents

3 Tbsp. butter, softened

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 Tbsp. whole milk

1 tsp. vanilla

¼ cup baking cocoa

3 Tbsp. finely chopped pecans or walnuts

2 tubs (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent rolls

Chocolate Glaze:   1 cup confectioners’ sugar

2 Tbsp. baking cocoa

2 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. water

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

½ tsp. vanilla

In a small bowl, cream butter and confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in milk and vanilla.  Gradually add cocoa and mix well.  Stir in pecans or walnuts.

Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles.  Spread about 2 rounded teaspoons of filling over each triangle to within ¼ inch of edges.  Roll up each from the wide end.  Place point side down 2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.  Curve ends to form crescent shapes.

Bake at 375 F. for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove to wire racks; cool slightly.  In a small bowl, whisk glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over crescents.        16 servings
