Pillsbury Crescents Complete Our Holiday Dinner #PlateFullCoOp #Spon

Family dinners are one of my favorite things about the holidays. We have the tradition of going to my mom's house every Christmas Eve for dinner, and she always does it up right! The main course usually consists of a turkey or ham, but this year we are opting for Prime Rib. Then mom proceeds to make a bountiful  array of side dishes. Corn, stuffing, and potatoes are always on top of the list, followed by a huge assortment of cookies, puddings and pies. We then gather around the table and chow down! The funny thing is, usually we are a very loud family. We are loud talkers, we joke and laugh a lot, but when our holiday dinner is served, it's usually done in silence. When it's nearly wrapped up, my little sister always exclaims, "You know that was some good eating when nobody was talking!" And she's right. My mama is an awesome cook! However, sometimes she doesn't get things right. Like her homemade cranberry stuffing was a huge flop a few years ago. Then there was the year when she used green tinted ketchup in her famous baked beans. While it tasted the same, nobody could move passed the green color of the beans. They just didn't look good! And if it doesn't look good, the brain just says it doesn't taste good. The one thing though that my mom has always been consistent on is serving up Pillsbury Crescent Rolls at every holiday dinner.

From the time I was a little girl, I can't remember a holiday where Pillsbury Crescent Rolls haven't been a part of our family dinner. While we aren't a large family, mom always has to make several cans because they are always the first thing gone. There's just something about those soft, buttery, flaky crescents that fills my family with so much happiness! Pillsbury Crescent Rolls will always have a place at our dinner table at every holiday family meal!

Are you looking for a way to spruce up your crescents this holiday? Why not try these 3 ingredient Chocolate-Filled Crescents:

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips
Powdered sugar, if desired


1 Heat oven to 350°F. Separate dough into 8 triangles.
2 Place tablespoon of chocolate chips on wide end of each triangle. Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle, rolling to opposite point. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
3 Bake at 350°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

  1. I make Crescents or Grands with most of my meals. They are tasty and easy to make.

  2. They are easy to do, but still not eaten at my zoo

  3. I love puff pastry. It is always interesting to me when I see that you get dough in tubes since we have them not here :)

  4. Mmm...crescent rolls are SOOO tasty hehe. I wish they didn't have the trans fat that they do, but they sure are delicious :) I always love having fresh, warm buns on the table with some butter...yum!!

  5. We used to do the ham/asparagus/white sauce recipe with these (taken from one of their own recipes years ago), but we haven't done it in awhile now! The big kids really liked those.

  6. One of my sisters, or I make a turkey wreath with crecent rolls. Now I'm hungry!

  7. OMGosh... miss those crescent rolls. They are the best and almost melt in your mouth.

  8. Too cute-soft to eat!You blew me away with those beautiful, beautiful idea.


Thanks for your comments! I appreciate every one of them :)
