We are halfway through our second week of school.  Everyone is slowly starting to slack off now that the newness of school has worn off.  They are getting up later and later as each day passes, leaving little time to eat breakfast.  I am starting to worry about week 3.

Trying to convince them that breakfast is an important meal is not going so well.  That is a hard one to sell when I am not a morning person, and I have zero desire to get up early to make (or eat) hot pancakes or muffins that early in the morning.  I’m pretty sure I would burn anything I would try to make because my eyes would still be closed.  Closed eyes and hot griddles do not make a good combination.

I have found a way around that though.  Lucky for me I am a night owl, and I don’t mind making some sort of breakfast the afternoon or night before.  In fact the other night I made a double batch of pancakes and froze them all.  The kids are old enough now to know how to heat them up in the microwave or toaster.  It’s a win, win for both of us.  They can still enjoy a hot breakfast, and I get to sleep a few minutes longer.   

Back to School Breakfasts and Snacks with Pillsbury

Today is another party hop day with a fun group of my blog friends.   We all decided to share one more day of breakfast and snacks using Pillsbury products.  I seriously always have crescents rolls or biscuits in my refrigerator drawers.  They are perfect for filling with just about anything.    Make sure you keep check out everyone’s posts at the end for some great ideas.

 For today’s party I made some Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake Rolls.  My kids loved that these could be eaten for breakfast in the morning and then again in the  afternoon when they got home from school.  Gotta love a food that can do double duty.

These rolls are really easy to put together.  I used a canned raspberry pie filling and a home made chocolate chip cheesecake filling.  You place a spoonful side by side on a crescent roll rectangle and then fold the sides up.  Pinch the ends and flip it over so it bakes seam side down.  You don’t want any of the goodness spilling out while it is baking.

After the rolls cooled, I added a white chocolate drizzle to the top.  I like to make my desserts pretty, but you could leave that off if you are opposed to chocolate for breakfast.

I have three kids that love chocolate chip pancakes with chocolate syrup for breakfast…we are good with chocolate for breakfast.  My thought is at least they are eating something and not going to school hungry.  Plus, they think I am the best mom ever for letting them eat their pancakes that way.  It’s another win, win :-)

So go ahead and whip up some fun filled crescent rolls and drizzle them with some chocolate.  Your kids will love you for it.

    oh yum! These look delightful! We’re not at the back-to-school stage yet (schools in UK don’t open until mid-september) but I’d happily make these anyway!
    P.S. Just discovered your blog and looking forward to many more of your sweet treats in my feed! :)

    I love this recipe and it’s one even the kids can help to make, which is even better. I never thought to make something like this with crescent rolls but it’s perfect. When my kids were younger we made those all the time filled with cheese and cheesy dogs. I was the best mom too when I made those. Let’s face it, just about anything is good wrapped in a crescent roll.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. I’ve saved it to my ZipList!

    So here’s the thing, while my intention may be good going into making these cute little bittys, I know that once they are made that the little selfish vixen side of me is going to show up and want to hog them all and not share with anyone, least of all my kids, who always seem to know when I’m making myself a treat and show up, begging for a hand-out. Is nothing sacred anymore! LOL! Seriously, these look really delicious.

    It would have been nice to see pictures of your steps; instead of finished product over and over.
    Sounds YUM.
