Chocolate Pillows


This is for madebymel! We were going to make them for NYE but with our Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip we didn't need them. However I was craving something chocolatey for days and finally got Kevin talked in to letting me make these! They are from the Pilsbury.com website and since I always have the ingredients on hand they are a good thing!

Chocolate Pillows

INGREDIENTS
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet
18 milk chocolate candy drops (I just use a couple Tbl. of chocolate chips)
1 tablespoon whipping cream (I've also used 1/2 and 1/2 if it's what I have on hand)
1 teaspoon sugar
Chocolate Sauce
1/2 cup whipping cream (again I've used 1/2 and 1/2)
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips




DIRECTIONS
1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on work surface; press dough into 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut into 6 squares (if it's just for me and hubby I'll do 4 rectangles and heat up the leftovers the next night, just pop in the microwave for about 30 seconds). Place on cookie sheet.
2. Place 3 chocolate candy drops in center of each dough square (or a Tbl of so of chocolate chips). Bring 4 corners of dough to center of candies; twist firmly. Pinch edges to seal. Brush tops with 1 tablespoon whipping cream; sprinkle with sugar.
3. Bake 14 to 19 minutes or until deep golden brown.
4. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat sauce ingredients over low heat 1 to 2 minutes or until melted and smooth. Spoon 2 tablespoons sauce onto each serving plate. Top each with 1 pillow; drizzle with remaining sauce.
