valentine lurve: sugar buns

While I don't usually recommend always going to prepackaged something-or-others to satisfy the crafty-bakey-I'm-bored need, this quick fix it kinda too pretty and too yummy, not to. Plus, it is super duper easy. My five (and a half) year old assistant did all the prep-work. On her own.

You will need:
*2 oz cream cheese
*powdered sugar
*food color (optional)
*1 pack of crescent ROUNDS (breadstick dough would probably work as well)
*chocolate chips
*bowl, spoon, froster/dull knife
*baking sheet

scrumdilly-do it:

Wash hands! Plop 2 oz of cream cheese into a bowl and set to soften. Add a tablespoon or two powdered sugar and a drop of food color and stir.

Crack open your tin of dough and separate the pieces. Unwind one roll and let yer kidlet go to work.

Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture on top of the dough.

Dot with chocolate chips. The more the merrier.

Reroll it up all purdy-like

Place on cookie sheet, repeat.

Bake according to package directions (lick the spoon).

Allow to cool and serve up with a cuppa tea, or milky beverage of choice. Don't fergit to lick them fingers. These sweet buns are the BESTEST!

After we finished chowing down, Miss Za had begun planning her next batch of sweet buns. She's thinking maybe some strawberry jam and happy edible flowers might a good combo. I think we have a new adventure ahead of us! How do you roll?


  1. how fun are these? and yummo.
    might be the next fun thing to do with my neice when we all get together. (MrO isn't much in the kitchen quite yet, tee hee)

    thanks for the idea Jek!!

  2. these look great and easy to make but.... what is the dough? can i get it in england?

  3. These look fantastic, thanks for sharing! I'll just have to make the dough from scratch, but that shouldn't be a problem...

  4. even better! i would make em from scratch too if i could master bread recipes! :)

  5. mandy-do you have premade dough in england? here in the states you can get a tube of dough already rolled with cinnamon and such. if you had a recipe for a fluffly puffy roll it might work...i've also used puff pastry before.

  6. I am so having the kids make these on Monday - Presidents day and a day off for them. I love to bake and they love to help - this can be THEIR project. Love it!!!!
