We’ve also created these bread dough wreath balls and trees for the holidays. Or even use up some left over Pie Crust Scraps for treats. They make great gifts!

Supplies:

  • crescent roll dough – we used the kind from a can, but your own recipe works great!
  • baking pan
  • cream cheese frosting
  • red and green chocolate candies
  • spoon or plastic bag for drizzling

Crescent Roll Trees Supplies

Method:

1. Lay out your dough in triangles onto a baking pan. If using the crescent rolls from a can, they are already in the perfect triangle shape. I actually kind of like that they are a little wonky, just like a real tree. If you want them smaller, use a pizza cutter to slice them diagonally in half.

2. Bake for 9-11 minutes at 375 degrees. NOTE: If you bake them for too long, they will over cook and be crispy. But my son loved those too, so maybe it’s not bad too over brown a little.

3. Once baked and cool to the touch, drizzle your frosting onto your trees in a zig-zag pattern, representing a string of lights. To help get your frosting more drizzly, melt it in the microwave for 10 or so seconds.

I just used a spoon to drizzle. You could also put your frosting in a piping bag or a plastic bag with the corner cut off.

4. Add your colored chocolate candies to your tree. I like these mini m&ms, they are the perfect size for a tree treat!
