Bookmark and Share
Semi-sweet chocolate chips on a tableImage via WikipediaOne of the best things about writing a Food Blog is sharing recipes from other Bloggers, who found recipes from other Bloggers who found recipes etc. etc.
This recipe I found on my new friend's blog,  She has some wonderful recipes you should look at, and become a follower of her blog.

I made these today, and they were "killer".

You might even experiment with other cut-up candy bars too.

Milky Way Pain Au Chocolat

2 Milky Way candy bars (2.05 ounces each)
1 package (8's) Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

for the glaze
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.  Cut the candy bars into 1/4 inch slices.

Break open the crescent roll container.  The dough will be in 2 halves.  Unroll the dough and divide on the middle portion, taking care not to tear the diagonal perforations.  There will be 4 rectangles of dough.

Place all four rectangles of dough on the cookie sheet with the narrower edges towards you.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sliced candy pieces on top of each rectangle, leaving a 1/2 inch border on both sides and a 1 inch border on the farthest end from you.

Roll up the dough jellyroll style, beginning with the edge closest to you.  If the diagonal perforations tear when rolling, gently pinch them together.

Repeat with the remaining rectangles.  Space them 3 inches apart.  Bake 20-22 minutes, or until golden brown.

In a double boiler, or in your microwave, melt the chocolate chips.  Stir in the butter and mix until smooth.

Drizzle over the pastry and serve warm.  Yummmmmmmm.
