Crescent Roll Recipes: Easter Candy Crescents - Food Fun Friday

Easter Candy Crescents: Stuff crescent rolls with Easter candy before baking for a yummy treat! #easter #crescent-rolls

Does anyone else still have gobs of leftover Easter candy? I am not sure what to do with all this stuff, but at this rate we will be eating Peeps well into June. One of our favorite things to bake are crescent rolls. They are so easy to make and you can dress them up or down with lots of different fillings. I got to thinking of some crescent roll recipes that we could make with our leftover Easter candy and came up with these Easter Candy Crescents.

Supplies you will need:
  • Tube of crescent rolls
  • Leftover candy
  • Sprinkles
  • Cooking spray

Open up your tube of crescent rolls, unroll and separate as usual. Before you roll them up to put in the oven, add some of your leftover Easter candy. I used jelly beans, peeps and sour patch bunnies. 

You will want to cut your peep in half since a whole peep will be way too big to roll up into a crescent roll. Here is the poor peep cut in half. We hardly knew ye, peep.

Bake as instructed on package. After 12 minutes our rolls started to turn a nice shade of brown. Remove from oven and tray and place on a plate. 

Spray the top of the rolls with cooking spray and add some sprinkles. Hey, you just stuffed jelly beans in a crescent roll. You're going to draw the line at sprinkles? You will want to cut these in half before you eat them so the kids can see what happened to the candy. The jelly beans mostly melted, the sour patch bunnies did not melt that much but were softened, and the peep completely melted and left a hollow space in the crescent roll. Please wait for the inside to cool before serving. When these come out of the oven the candy is pretty hot and bubbly.

Which Easter candy crescent did I like the best? I thought the jelly beans made the yummiest crescent. The peep was pretty good too. The sour patch crescent was a bit sour but still good. If you are only going to make one type, go for the jelly beans!
