Reese’s Crescent Rolls


Crescent Rolls drizzled with chocolate.

Happy (almost) Halloween! Halloween just happens to be my favorite holiday of the year. Who can resist dressing up in costumes, roaming the neighborhood streets after dark, and eating loads and loads of candy.

The only thing I dislike about Halloween is trying to figure out how many trick-or-treaters we will have so I can buy the appropriate amount of candy. I can not tell you how many times we have run low. I take a peek down the street and there’s an army of small children headed our way, each of them eager for Halloween candy. Frantically I tell my husband he must get to the nearest store, Fast!, and buy some more candy! But don’t run over any kids in the driveway!


Inevitably he brings back about 10 pounds of candy and by the time he returns, the number of trick-or-treaters has dwindled drastically. Then we have bags and bags of leftover candy. And guess who’s most likely to eat candy until they feel sick to their stomach? (Raising hand sheepishly).

I love the idea of using Halloween candy in recipes. It feels like it’s being put to good use. This Reese’s Crescent Rolls recipe is super easy and quick, and you can maybe even pass it off as breakfast. Which is good, because don’t your kids always beg you to let them eat some of their Halloween candy the next morning? Well this way they can. It’s really no different than eating a chocolate croissant for breakfast is it? Actually it’s more nutritious because it has peanuts and that’s a protein source. 🙂

Ever since I made this Game Day Pep-Corn with REESE’S Minis, I’ve become obsessed with melting Reese’s Minis to make a drizzle/sauce. It blends all the peanut buttery/chocolate amazingness of a peanut butter cup together into one singular goodness.

With a peanut butter cup on the inside and Reese’s Mini’s Drizzle on the outside, these are super delicious crescent rolls!

    I think it would be a great idea to have something to bake for your neighbor or even the whole neighborhood and they would love them Seriously They Would But There isn’t a lot of kids in my neighborhood and i will not buy a lot of candy to just have left over for the rest of the year like last year!! Even though there are quite a few kids that go to my Church and we have like a small neighborhood it’s like a carnival without the rides of course but we have games and several kids love the fact that we just buy the candy and give it out at the church !! Thanks For The Recipe I Will Use It This Year For Sure as A Dessert For When we have the diners At Our Church !! 🙂

    Happy Halloween, Christin! If only people would hand these out… I’d definitely be out trick-or-treating frantically. Hahah what a cute twist on pain au chocolat!
