15 minutes, 5 ingredients, and you have this festive, fun, holiday breakfast or party snack! These pastries are beautiful and delicious. A winning combination.
I discovered this simple way to make pastries a few months back, and have had a lot of fun customizing them to fit my mood. They are so easy to make you may find yourself making them a little too often if you know what I mean. Chocolate and pomegranate is my current favorite combo, while strawberry was ruling the roost all summer. But doesn’t this combination just scream Christmas and holiday festivities at you? It does to me.
I don’t know about you guys, but during the holiday season I feel a little chaotic. I love the decorating, the music, the holiday parties, the traditional baking, the crafts, and all the fun stuff, but it is exhausting. So when I can find a quick short cut to make something that looks and tastes this impressive but only takes me a couple of minutes of my time, I am going to take it!
You go ahead and feel free to make your own crescent or pastry dough, and chocolate fudge sauce, but I say cut yourself a break and use the pre-made versions as this will greatly simplify things for you. Seriously, 5 ingredients and just a few minutes of your time. That is all you need.
Chocolate Pomegranate Pastries
- 1 can crescent roll dough seamless is best
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1 Tbs granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
