These Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Crescents are a crowd pleaser! The creamy no bake cheesecake is topped on a buttery, flaky, crescent roll from Pillsbury. Special thanks to Pillsbury for sponsoring this recipe.
We just love this hand-held dessert. They’re perfect for holiday entertaining and since Walmart has a twin pack of Pillsbury Crescents you can make enough for everyone.
Our no bake chocolate chip cheesecake recipe is simple and once made will fill 12 crescents. We wanted to make this recipe super easy, so if you wanted, you could even get your kids involved in the kitchen. My mini chef loves to help me in the kitchen, and this is a great recipe to introduce your child to the kitchen during the holiday or anytime.
If your crescents don’t have a hole for filling after baking take the bottom of any round kitchen gadget and poke a cavity to fill while it’s hot, viola! I used the bottom of my grater which is rounded on the bottom. I only had to do it for 2 of them so it may not happen for you. 🙂
