Chocolate Butterscotch Crescents

Sometimes it is the simple ideas that are the best. 

And this is a simple and easy dessert/breakfast idea. 

We have been in the middle of a move.  It has been so much more difficult than I had imagined.  Horrible really.  I needed some easy and simple in my life. 

So, here is the easy and simple dessert.

One tube of Pilsbury Crescent Rolls
Semi sweet chocolate chips, I used Gharidelli because they are milk free
Butterscotch chips, I used Food Lion brand because they are milk free
Powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Unroll the crescent rolls and separate into triangles.
Place a tablespoon of semi sweet chocolate chips and a tablespoon of butterscotch chips on the crescent roll.
Roll them up and place them on the baking sheet.
Bake for 11-13 minutes.

Mix up some simple icing glaze.  This is sort of an 'eye ball it' situation.  Put about a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar in a bowl.  Add 1 teaspoon of water at a time and give it a stir until it is the consistency you want. 

When the crescents come out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes, or as long as you can stand it.  Drizzle the powdered sugar glaze over the tops of them. 

They sort of have doughnutty taste to them.  This is totally worth the very little effort that they took. 

My little Beanes ate them up.  I ate two of them up. 

These totally hit the spot with a cup of coffee!

Feel free to adjust the ingredients to your tastes.  I think these would be good with some peanut butter and chocolate chips.  I used all ingredients that were milk free so my String Beane could eat them. 

I am linking up at Metamorphosis Monday, Allergy Free Wednesday and these other Awesome Parties!
