Chocolate Crescent Rolls

by Craftiness Whatnot (
k-3I love these chocolate filled rolls. They are perfect for a rainy afternoon like today. Or for any afternoon or occasion for that matter.

I found the recipe at LittleBirdieSecrets and couldn’t wait to try it out. Their original recipe can be found here. I did a few minor adjustments so that I could use whatever ingredients I had at home at the moment and trust me, they were perfect. LittleBirdieSecrets intended these little wonders for thanksgiving. But, as 1. we have no thanksgiving in Sri Lanka 2. These are great for any time of the year,  I made these for my sister’s birthday.

Ingredients I used (please refer the post by LittleBirdieSecrets to see what the original recipe calls for). As you will see I halved the quantities for my use.

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
a sachet (2 tbsp) instant yeast
1 egg
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup sugar
A little water
a pinch of salt
a bit of softened margarine
a few chunks of chocolate

How To

Mix all the ingredients except the margarine & chocolate in a large bowl. It will be sticky. But don’t mind it. Let it to rest for 45 minutes. Taking a tip from the LittleBirdies,  you can put the bowl in a large kitchen garbage bag, tie the opening & leave it. Or else you can cover the bowl with a wet tea towel & leave it to rest. (I use the tea towel technique when making bread)

After 45 minutes, punch down & leave to rest for another 45 minutes.

When the time is up, break the dough in to a several pieces. I make bite sized rolls. If you want to make bite sized ones, on a floured surface roll out the dough pieces into circles of the size of a dinner plate.

Spread softened margarine on to rolled out dough.Cut into wedges. Put a piece of chocolate on the wide end of each wedge and starting from the wide end, roll inwards. Tuck the pointed end underneath & shape the roll like a crescent.

And yeah, I forgot to shape my ones into crescents. So they’re not exactly crescent rolls. anyway, moving on, place the rolls on a baking sheet & bake in a preheated oven at 400 F for about 10 minutes or till they’re golden. My crescent rolls were small, so they only needed to be baked for about 7 minutes.

When they bake, they smell so yummy & yeasty. I love the freshly baked smell of buns & breads. Yum.

That’s about it. My folks loved it. But MiddleChild for whose birthday I made these & exon wished I had put something savoury or spicy in them instead of chocolate. Oh, well.

Let me know if you make this. :) Happy baking!
