“This is a delicious, simple dessert recipe that I adapted with Pillsbury crescent rolls. I whipped it up one weeknight, and it baked while we ate dinner. It's best served warm, and it's moist & chocolate-y. This could also be a nice sweet treat for a brunch.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  2. In small bowl, combine flour, sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until crumbly; set aside.
  4. Unroll crescent dough; firmly press perforations to seal.
  5. Sprinkle with 2/3 cup chocolate chips, nuts and 3/4 of the streusel mixture.
  6. Starting at long side, roll up the dough; pinch edge to seal.
  7. Place in greased pan; I use a regular-sized loaf pan.
  8. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with remaining streusel.
  9. Bake at 375°F for 30 to 40 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  10. Cool 10 minutes.
  11. While cooling, melt remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips, and spread or drizzle on top of crescent roll.
  12. Serve warm.
