Chocolate Crescent Rolls with Powdered Sugar | Mini Van Dreams

These delicious chocolate crescent rolls started as a homework assignment in French class for my brother. At the last minute, he remembered he needed a treat for the next day’s class.

Somewhere, he came up with wanting to take in “French pastries” to share during their potluck. After a quick run to the store, he came home with crescent roll dough, Hershey nugget bars and powdered sugar… and 20 minutes later, Jeff’s French Pastries were a thing. A very yummy thing.

We’ve made them ever since.

Recently, I introduced the twins to this chocolate deliciousness. They love helping with rolling up (and eating) the chocolate bars, putting them in the oven to bake, and then dusting with powdered sugar. Quick and simple, it is an easy (and delicious) way to get kids into the kitchen.

In our family, these are also called "Jeff's French Pastries." I don't know how French they are, but I do know they are delicious!
