COOK TIME

No need to panic when your friends call and say they're around the corner and want to stop by. Just make these super simple Chocolate Rollups. These chocolate pastries are made in no time and can be served right from the oven. 

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup (3 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 (8-ounce) package refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small saucepan, combine chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract.
     
  2. Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into 8 triangles. Spread chocolate evenly over each triangle and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Cut each triangle in half and roll up, starting at wide end.
     
  3. Place rolls on a baking sheet and bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
     
  4. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and serve.

These sound good! Can I sub coconut oil for the veggie shortening?

Hi there! While the Test Kitchen has not made this recipe using coconut oil in place of vegetable shortening, we do believe that it is an equivalent substitution. Please note that the combination of coconut oil and the almond extract in the mixture may not taste well together. Enjoy!

I don't like vegetable shortening, so I prefer not to melt the chocolate chips. I use the mini chips and just sprinkle them on the dough, then roll them up and bake! Same great taste, no extra fat, less work.

Will try them this weak. My son and granddaughter love chocolate.

My family loves these, I have been making them alot of years. Sometimes I make a glaze to go on the lightly...
