If you have spent any time at all at Mess for Less, then you know that I am kind of obsessed with Crescent Roll Recipes. I can't help it. There are just so many kid friendly recipes that you can make using store bought crescent dinner rolls as the base. Every time I am at the grocery store, I pick up a tube of crescent rolls. Some of my favorite crescent roll snacks involve cheese, and these Crescent Cheese Puffs came about because I had some left over crescent dough and I thought I would combine it with Babybel cheese. The results were delicious!

How to make Crescent Cheese Puffs
To make these crescent cheese puffs, start by peeling the cover off the Babybel cheese. You will need one Babybel for each cheese puff you plan to make. While you are doing this, pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
You will need one triangle of crescent dough for each cheese puff, but you won't be using it in its triangle form. Simply seal the seams between two triangles so you have rectangular sheets of dough.
Cut each of the rectangular dough sheets in half to make a square, and add a Babybel cheese to the center. You can use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the dough on your work surface.
Bring each of the ends of the dough towards the center to cover the cheese.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the puffs on the cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, until the tops turn a golden brown. If they start to get too dark before the time is up, cover with a sheet of aluminum foil.
When they come out of the oven, these crescent cheese puffs are gooey and delicious!
These are great to make as a quick snack for mom to make for kids. They also make an easy party appetizer as they are packed with cheesy flavor.
