Crescent Rolls with an M&M Surprise

At first thought, I might never have put this dessert together. But when I needed a sweet treat and all I had was a can of crescent roll dough and m&m’s, it just came together. And I have to say, they’ve made a perfect combination, topped with a drizzle of frosting. Yum.

1. Lay out your triangle shaped dough. Place 8-9 m&m’s on the large area of the triangle. Press them in a bit as you place them, so they won’t fall around when you roll the dough.

2. Start with the large end of the triangle crescent dough and roll it up to the tip. Place each one on a baking sheet, and top with one m&m for show.

3. Bake these rolls according to your recipe’s directions (or from the can).

4. While these are baking, 12-13 minutes, mix up your frosting. My recipe for white frosting is: 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 T milk, 1/4 tsp vanilla. Whisk together.

5. Just out of the oven, and while the rolls are still warm (they are best warm), drizzle the tops of the rolls with frosting in a fun zig-zag look.

These are ready to eat, and will look great for Valentine’s Day with those pink m&ms. Try to eat them right away when they are still warm. If yours cool too soon, you can put it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to warm back up.

  1. Love it! My grandma used to put little pieces of Hershey bars in our crescent rolls and it was always such a fun surprise! I’m going to make these on Valentine’s Day!

  2. My 4 year old is looking over my shoulder as I read this and is asking if we can PUHLEASE make them:) They look delicious and easy…tomorrow is his night to help with dinner, I am thinking this will be the perfect dessert.

  3. These are great with Nutella inside!
    Just spread the Nutella on the triangles before you roll them up.
    My kids LOVE.
    I’m going to add the frosting!

  4. I do a similar activity with my 6th graders in the FCS class I teach. I buy an assortment of the different chocolate chips available and let the kids pick which ones to fill the crescents with. Sometimes we cut each triangle into two smaller ones so they have bite sized rolls. They only take about 8 minutes to bake.
