Two Ingredient Pull Apart Sweet Rolls

Be bold, be daring, be fearless… with your sweet rolls! LOL. For years, The Kid and I used to do Waffle Sunday. It is just as it sounds. Waffles on Sunday morning for breakfast. We’d have plain ones, chocolate chip ones, blueberry. All kinds of waffles, but we never branched out.

One morning I opened the fridge and caught sight of a tube of crescent rolls. Like most kids, The Kid loves those things. (Side note: The butter flavor in them is not even remotely related to real or even fake butter, LOL.) You can make pigs in a blanket with hot dog pieces, so I thought about what else you could do with the rolls.

Turns out, they are perfect for making quick and easy pull apart sweet rolls. I usually just go the very easiest route and use chocolate chips, but don’t feel restricted with your ingredients. Use traditional sugar and cinnamon for cinnamon rolls. Try jam or jelly for fruit flavored ones. You could even use real fruit pieces like apples.

  • 1 tube Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • Chocolate chips or filling of choice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a pie tin, cake pan, or cookie sheet lightly with non-stick spray. Open the tube of rolls and carefully remove the dough in one piece. If it comes apart that’s OK, but try to get it out in one piece if you can.

Roll the dough open on a cutting board or clean counter, keeping the 8 triangles together. Press the seams with your fingers to seal them so you end up with a rectangle. If any pieces broke apart, just smoosh them together into the big rectangle.

Spread chocolate chips evenly down the center of the dough. Starting with one of the long sides, roll the dough into a log like you’d roll cinnamon rolls. Slice them with a sharp knife into 16 pieces. Arrange the pieces in a pretty pattern in your pan or on the cookie sheet. The pieces should be pretty close together. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes until browned and puffed up.

Remove from oven, pull apart pieces, and enjoy.

You can top them with icing or serve them plain. Drop in a few mini marshmallows and some graham cracker crumbs for a smores version. If you want to lower calories just a little, try the reduced fat crescent rolls. Some times though it’s fun just to go with the regular version and not even work up the macros.

Make these easy rolls your own and let me know what combination you came up with.
