Easy Chocolate Cream Cheese Danish Dessert

What do you do when you have crescent rolls sitting in the fridge and you don't want just the same 'ol thing?  You make Cream Cheese Danish!  They taste sooo much better than what they look, and seriously, how can you go wrong with cream cheese and crescent rolls????  I altered the recipe that I found online by adding cocoa powder to give it a chocolatey taste, but I'm sure the original recipe would have been just as good.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Danish

2 pks of crescent rolls
2 pks of cream cheese - softened
2/3 c sugar
2-3 TBSP cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 9"x13" pan with cooking spray.  Roll one package of crescent rolls out in the bottom of the pan and press the seams together to form the bottom crust.  In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and cinnamon, mix until smooth.  Pour over the bottom crust and spread evenly.  Take the second package of crescent rolls and roll them out on a piece of parchment paper to fit the pan and transfer on top of the cream cheese mixture.  I sprinkled the top with additional sugar and cinnamon and baked for 25 min. or until golden and bubbly.  Let cool and enjoy.  Refrigerate the left overs.

Dear Hubby is not big on sweets, but he gobbled this one right up.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Until next time...



Looks yummy.
