Chocolate Mascarpone Crescents
Flaky crescent rolls filled with a sweet mascarpone and chocolate filling. These Chocolate Mascarpone Crescents are so easy to make and will remind you of a chocolate croissant from a bakery.
Servings: 8 servings
- 4 ounces mascarpone cheese
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 ounce container Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough
- 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Powdered sugar for decoration
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small mixing bowl combine the mascarpone cheese, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix until well combined, smooth, and creamy. Set aside
Remove crescent roll dough from package, unroll, and separate into 8 triangles. Place a scant tablespoon full of the mascarpone cheese mixture on the large end of the triangle and pat down with your fingers, spreading out a little. Sprinkle some of the mini chocolate chips over the cheese mixture. Beginning at large end that has cheese and chocolate chips on it, gently roll the crescent roll dough towards the pointed end. Transfer rolled crescent to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
Bake for 15 minutes or till lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
