I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Eagle Brand. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions are mine alone. The kids are out of school all week for the Thanksgiving holiday, so we came to Alabama to visit family …

Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

medium.12 cans of Pillsbury Crescent rolls
2 (8oz each) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter, melted
cinnamon
sugar

Unroll and spread 1 of the cans of crescent rolls on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish (or 8 x 8 if you want to cut the recipe in half). Combine softened cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Spread over crescent roll layer. Unroll and layer remaining crescent rolls over cream cheese layer. Melt your butter and spread over top of crescent rolls. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake for 20-30 minutes in 350 degree oven until bubbly and slightly browned. Drizzle with a little honey if you like. Let cool a bit, slice and eat.

ADDITIONAL: Consider adding some fresh fruit puree like strawberries, raspberries etc. For the chocolate lover add chocolate syrup or cut up candy bars or chocolate chips. Think of crushed nuts and caramel? How about a drizzle of maple syrup with a sprinkle of brown sugar? Just add your favorite ingredient before adding the top layer of crescent and bake as directed. Also, the filling can have some food dye placed into it to add a festive design for a special holiday!

Dream Cake

D

1 pkg. devil’s food, chocolate, or German chocolate cake mix
1 can sweetened condensed milk
caramel ice cream topping
1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
4-5 Health or Skor bars, chopped up

Bake cake according to package directions for a 9×13 inch pan; cool for about 5 minutes.

Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes into the cake. Let the cake cool for a little while.

Slowly pour sweetened condensed milk over the cake, letting it sink into the holes; then drizzle some of the caramel over the top of the cake.

(Some people I know heat the milk and caramel together and then pour it over the cake…. I’ve tried it both ways … no real preference here)

Let cake cool completely. Top cake with whipped topping. Decorate the top of the cake with candy bar chunks and swirls of caramel topping. Refrigerate before serving. (Great to make one evening and serve the next.)

DO NOT EVEN MENTION CALORIE COUNT HERE – it exceeds all limits, but wonderfully quick dessert for company and delicious with a cup of coffee!
