Sometimes you just gotta indulge a little in life. Whether it’s on a Sunday, Tuesday, a bad work day, or because of an argument with a friend, little indulgences often make us feel better. Within moderation, of course.
Last weekend, I was in need of a little indulgence. Cookie butter indulgence, that is! I had half a jar just staring at me in my pantry, begging to be used (and not just from eating it with a spoon). Because I love this spread so much, I knew it was time to get reacquainted with this delicious spread.
And because I had the it’s-almost-Monday-where-is-the-summer-going blahs, I knew I needed a little something special to lift my spirits. Which, by the way, can you believe it’s going to be August on Friday?! Where has the time gone?
As I was poking around in my kitchen, I found a tube of crescent rolls. I bought them several weeks earlier to experiment with, because I’m not the biggest fan of plain ‘ole crescent rolls. I’ll eat them, but I always think of Thanksgiving and the Pilsbury commercials about who can grab the last crescent roll the fastest. See where I’m coming from?
Anyways, after some searching through my pantry, I decided on the perfect cookie butter indulgence, Chocolate Cookie Butter Crescents! Creamy cookie butter, layered on buttery crescent rolls and topped with chocolate chips, creates these decadent rolls. Perfect with a morning cup of coffee or as a mid-day snack, these little guys will keep your sweet-tooth satisfied all day long.
These Chocolate Cookie Butter Crescents only require four ingredients. That’s it! Which means you’re just minutes away from indulging in a warm roll, oozing with cookie butter, chocolatey goodness. Doesn’t get much better than that, my friends!
One bite and I promise you’ll be hooked on these rolls. The melty chocolate and cookie butter combine to create a delicious cinnamon-chocolate spread, while the warm rolls envelope their flavors.
Once these Chocolate Cookie Butter Crescents have cooled off, feel free to pop ‘em back in the microwave for a few seconds to restore the melty cookie butter bliss.
