Stuffed Crescent Rolls

My Snickers dessert takes a classic candy and transforms it into a bread dessert that’s soft, satisfying, and easy to eat!

The chocolate melts into an ooey gooey mess, coating the crunchy peanuts and decadent caramel.

Finish them with a dusting of powdered sugar and candy eyes for decoration. SO good and so fun!!

With a bit of creativity, you can turn any recipe into a fun Halloween treat.

For example, make some pretzel dogs, then garnish them with ketchup and mustard eyes. You’ll have the same mummy effect as the Snickers stuffed crescent rolls!

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

  • Snickers Bars – Fun sized, please!

    Full sized candy bars will be much harder to wrap, first of all, but will also be way too messy and won’t hold up well after baking.

    Of course, most fun sized candy bars will work! You’re limited only by your imagination and your grocery store’s candy aisle!
  • Crescent Rolls – Get the can with 8 individual rolls. Other canned or premade doughs, such as pizza dough, could be rolled out and cut to use as a substitute.

    That’ll take some more work on your part, but will do the trick!
  • Candy Eyeballs – These are a staple for Halloween at our house. You can find them online (affiliate link), or at places like Michaels or Hobby Lobby..
  • Powdered Sugar – To add a nice sweetness that melts in with the buttery crescent roll pastry. 

PRO TIP

Make your own powdered sugar by blending granulated sugar in a blender or food processor!

Stuffed Crescent Rolls Recipe Tips

  1. Close any gaps. While you might be tempted to leave some gaps in the dough wrappings for that classic mummy look, that extra space will only lead to chocolate oozing out and making a real mess. 
  2. Chill the candy. For a cleaner, easier time assembling the stuffed crescent rolls, I recommend leaving the candy in the fridge until you’re ready to wrap them. 
  3. Use an Air Fryer instead of the oven! You can also bake crescent rolls in an air fryer! Fry them at 375°F for 5 minutes, or until browned.

    Using this method, it’s crucial to make sure there are no gaps in the pastry on the bottoms or sides of the mummy!

Serving and Storing the Snickers Dessert

Plate these little guys right away, while they’re still melty and ooey-gooey! They’re still delicious at room temperature, too, but I think they’re best while fresh.

Stored in an airtight container, leftovers will keep for up to 4 days. 

I don’t recommend prepping them ahead. The flavor is best when fresh, and they’re quick to make, so make them the day of your Halloween party. 

Stuffed Crescent Rolls FAQ

Are Pillsbury crescent rolls the same as croissants?

Not quite! Croissants are made of a yeast laminated dough and have a flaky texture. Crescent rolls are a bit more doughy, tender, and chewy by comparison.


But both are buttery and delicious! I imagine a candy bar stuffed in a croissant would be delicious, too. So if that’s the dough you have, feel free to work with it!

How do you cut crescent rolls?

If you’re going with a substitute dough, you might struggle to get the same crescent shape. Let me help!

Roll the dough out into a circle – it may be easier to cut a circle out of a large piece and rework the cuttings into the dough. Cut the circle into 8 even pieces by cutting in half, then into quarters, and finally halving each of those slices.

Servings 8

Ingredients
 

  • 8 fun size Snickers bars, unwrapped
  • 8 ounces crescent rolls, (can of 8)
  • 16 candy eyeballs
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper; set aside.
  • Unroll the crescent roll dough and lay out the triangles of dough, gently stretching each one out in all directions.
  • Place a Snickers on each of the triangles of dough vertically, about an inch down from the short, flat side of the dough.
  • Cut the long pointy tips of the dough triangles off, about an inch below the bottom of the Snickers. Reserve those pieces of dough for later.
  • Cut horizontal strips in the dough along the left and right sides of the Snickers.
  • Fold the top piece of dough up and wrap the long strips around the outer edges of the candy bar, gently pressing to seal them closed. Do the same with the bottom piece of dough. Use the remaining strips to crisscross over the body of the Snickers mummy and tuck any excess dough under the mummies. Leave a small space open towards the top where you can place eyes after it bakes.
  • Using the reserved pointy pieces, cut them into thin strips. Use these strips to add more bandages to each mummy.
  • Place the stuffed crescent rolls about 2 inches apart on your prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on top. Remove the pan from the oven and let the mummies cool on the pan for a couple minutes.
  • Sprinkle the tops with powdered sugar, and add two candy eyeballs to each stuffed mummy.
  • Best served warm, but also delicious at room temp.

Donna’s Notes

The fewer gaps in the “bandages” the less seepage you will see. If you store the snickers in the fridge before making the mummies, this may also reduce any seepage. Baking them for 10 minutes at 400°F., I did not have any seepage. (I originally tested at 375 for 15 minutes and they did seep quite a bit, so keep your eye on them.)
You can also bake these in an air fryer, I recommend air frying at 375°F. for approx 5 minutes, or until golden brown. If you do this, be sure that there are no holes in the dough on the bottom or sides of the mummies.
Best served when ooey gooey, but they still taste delicious at room temp. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
