Like most everything else, I found this on Pinterest and thought it was a simple and fun idea. I made them for a Superbowl snack last year and they were a HUGE hit with the boys, so I decided to make them again for a New Years potluck.
These are pretty filling, but are full of flavor and taste amazing with warmed pizza sauce or marinara sauce.
INGREDIENTS (yields 16 rolls)
- 8 mozzarella string cheeses
- 2 rolls Pillsbury Crescents (reduced fat)
- 8 oz package of pepperoni
- 6 oz jar of pizza sauce or marinara (found in pasta aisle of grocery store)
STEP 1: Open all string cheese packets so that the cheese is free to cut. Cut each piece in half, making 16 total.
STEP 2: Roll out crescent rolls and split along perforated section. Add 3 pieces of pepperoni and string cheese piece.
STEP 3: Roll from large side of crescent and finish by folding in the sides as best you can to keep the cheese from oozing out. Lay on baking sheet.
STEP 4: Serve with sauce, warmed. This is best devoured when hot.
