Put Some Love in the Oven this Valentine’s Day

No, that doesn’t mean what you think, although we’re not stopping you from having that kind of fun today. We know you’re not going to spend the day cooking, so whether you’re hanging with your honey or spending the day getting pampered, surprise everyone (and impress yourself) by creating this delicious treat that doubles as breakfast, dessert and anything in between.

Love-Filled Chocolate Crescents Recipe

What you need for the crescents:

3 TBSP softened butter

1 cup powdered sugar

1 TBSP milk or half and half

1 tsp vanilla extract

¼ cup cocoa powder

3 TBSP finely chopped nuts (pecans, almonds or cashews taste sumptuous)

2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls

 

What you need for the chocolate drizzle:

1 cup powdered sugar

2 TBSP cocoa powder

2 TBSP plus 1 tsp water

2 TBSP melted butter

½ tsp vanilla extract

 

What to do:

Put on your apron (and nothing else), and cream the butter with the powdered sugar in a small bowl until the mixture is airy and soft. Beat the mixture while adding in the milk and vanilla. Add the cocoa gradually, mixing well. Stir in the nuts. Unroll the crescent dough and separate as instructed in the directions on the package. Spread a large dollop of the filling on each triangle, leaving about ¼ of an inch bare around the edges. Starting at the wide end, roll up the crescents and place them with the pointed end down on an ungreased baking sheet. Make sure to keep them about 2 inches apart because they will plump up as they bake. Curve the ends to create the crescent shape. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 12-15 minutes or until they’re golden. As they cool, whisk the ingredients for the chocolate drizzle until it’s silky smooth. Drizzle it over the crescents using a spoon. Make sure to lick the spoon when you’re done.

Enjoy breakfast in bed or a post-Valentine’s-dinner delicacy. This recipe is super simple but indulgently sexy. It’ll leave you licking your fingers—or his!
