I like to think of these as fake little macaroons, or Mounds bites. They’re my go-to snack when it’s 8 o’clock at night and I’m craving something sweet. They take about 5 minutes to prepare and 10-13 minutes to bake and only use 3 ingredients.
(The thing on the right is a “dirty diaper”. It’s a crescent roll filled with chocolate chips.)
Makes 16 bites.
Pillsbury Crescent rolls (or store brand)
Chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life vegan chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Roll out the dough. Roll each triangle into a ball and then divide that dough into two smaller balls (unless you want larger ones). You should have 16 small dough balls.
Flatten each dough ball and put a group of chocolate chips in the middle. Fold up the sides and roll into a ball again.
Roll in coconut.
Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 10-13 minutes.
For a “dirty diaper” simply spread chocolate chips all along the inside of the crescent roll and roll up like you would normally.
