Chocolate Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

Crescent Rolls

  • 8oz cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1 tbsp chopped hazelnuts; reserve some for garnish

  • ½ tsp almond extract

  • 1 package crescent rolls


  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp almond extract

  • 2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, chocolate, hazelnuts, and almond extract until smooth. Spread the crescent rolls onto a non-stick cookie sheet.

Place a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on wide end of each triangle. Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle, rolling to opposite point. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until golden-brown, around 15-20 minutes.

While the crescent rolls are baking combine all 4 ingredients to make the glaze. Whisk until smooth.

Remove the rolls from the oven and drizzle with the brown sugar glaze. Sprinkle with some of the chopped hazelnuts.

Bon Appetit!
