Pillsbury crescent rolls filled with graham crackers, marshmallow cream, and chocolate cream cheese make the perfect indoor Cheesecake S’mores Danish. Minus all the outdoor campfire stress!
The great outdoors and I have never really been one.
It’s part of the reason that I prefer to do my camping from a hotel….
that and mosquitoes eat me like I eat sugar!!
But I will brave the elements to enjoy a good campfire every once in a while.
The thought of ooey gooey marshmallows gets me there every time!
I have to admit that one of my favorite parts is roasting marshmallows
and eating s’mores until I feel sick!!!
My husband is super patient and will slowly toast his marshmallows
until they are all golden brown and pretty!
Now me on the other hand…
get it in there, burn it good, slap it on a cracker with chocolate
and eat the crunchy goo! Then repeat 10 more times.
Then you have our kids.
They hold it barely over the fire and then wonder why it isn’t getting warm,
or they put it right into the center and poof it goes up in flames.
We have no sympathy for them.
You burn it or drop it…oh well!
Get another one and try again!
It’s a good thing marshmallows are cheap.
I am always on the lookout for other fun ways to enjoy the s’mores flavor
without having to breathe fresh air!
The thing with s’mores is that it has been made into everything.
So many yummy things have been created
using the delectable combo of chocolate and marshmallows.
Most things have even been done 10x’s or more.
And then when I think that I have a brilliant idea
that I am sure no one has ever done…
google lets me down HARD!!!
This week I thought…breakfast s’mores!
It has been done before, (insert sad face)
but I went with it anyway!!!
Don’t you want chocolate cream cheese and marshmallow fluff
all wrapped up in a graham cracker roll?
Yes, please! I know I sure do!!!!
I just love that sweet rolls are a completely acceptable morning treat…
even filled to the brim with marshmallows and chocolate!
I had to run to the grocery store the other day
to pick up some dinner ingredients
when I saw this chocolate cream cheese spread.
I had seen it before but hadn’t bought it yet…
today I knew exactly what I was doing with it.
Into my shopping cart it went!!!
At home I quickly lined up my ingredients and got to work.
I recommend working on these 2 at a time.
The dough gets too soft and tears really easily then.
1. Lay out the crescent rolls into 4 rectangles. Press seams together. Spoon on the graham cracker and marshmallow mixture. Press into the dough with the back of the spoon.
2. Roll the dough up like a cinnamon roll, starting from the shortest side. Squeeze it together.
3. Bring the ends of the dough together and press it into each other.
4. Use your thumbs to make a large indent in the middle of each roll. Don’t worry if it isn’t the prettiest. Mine were having issues too!
5. Fill the indent with marshmallow fluff and top it with chocolate cream cheese.
6. Bake and cool.
I just love how the marshmallow fluff breaks through the chocolate
in such random patterns on each danish!!!
Once they cool, sprinkle on some more marshmallow bits,
light a candle and eat your masterpiece!!!
Who says you have to wait for breakfast???
