SunButter Chocolate Crescent Rolls
If you’re a parent of a child with food allergies like me, you cook ALL the time. But the cooking picks up even more during the holidays, and expectations are set even higher for special meals and treats. During this joyful yet stressful time of year, I always like to plan my holiday baking and menus around a few EASY yet DELICIOUS recipes that are dairy free, egg free, nut free and sesame free. These SunButter Chocolate Crescent Rolls fit that description perfectly!
If you use pre-made crescent rolls, they are truly a cinch to whip up. Just unroll and separate the pre-made crescent roll dough:
Spread about 1 Tbsp of SunButter on each one:
Sprinkle on nut-free and dairy-free chocolate chips and roll into crescents as directed (roll from the widest part to the smallest triangle tip):
I used about one Tbsp of SunButter in each crescent roll. So, if you eat two crescent rolls you will eat 7 grams of protein – that’s more than 1 ounce of turkey or beef lunch meat (6 grams), 1 ounce American cheese (6 grams) or 6 ounce serving of yogurt (4-6 grams)!

Then bake according to the packaging directions until the rolls are a light golden brown (I baked at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes each):
These SunButter Chocolate Crescent Rolls are perfect for Christmas morning, New Year’s Day brunch or any holiday festivity. They are best fresh out of the oven, but it’s also easy to make them ahead of time and warm them up right before you eat them. You just NEED that warm bread and melted SunButter and chocolate combination. Mmmm.
