You'll never go back to plain crescent rolls once you try this easy but elegant version!

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounce pop-can of Pillsbury® Reduced Fat Crescent dough
  • 4 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll the crescent rolls to lie flat on a nonstick jellyroll pan or cookie sheet.
2. Mix sugar with cinnamon in a small cup, and sprinkle evenly over the top of the unrolled triangles of dough.
3. Sprinkle a heaping teaspoon (or 1/2 tablespoon) of mini chocolate chips over each triangle of dough. Roll up each of the crescents, curve into crescent shapes, and space them 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
4. Bake for about 11 minutes or until golden brown.
