I love peanut butter… seriously never go a day without eating it. I tried to give it up for lent but that was out of the question immediately.

I started making these back in middle school and they never fail to disappoint. These little bundles of joy are perfect if you need a quick dessert for a dinner party, have late night drunchies (so simple you can totally make these under the influence), or if you’re wanting to impress your special someone but have no baking abilities whatsoever. If you fit the said categories or are just craving something sweet, this three ingredient, simple recipe is right up your ally.

Not a fan of Nutella? Substitute with chocolate chips or just peanut butter. (I’ve even made these breakfast style by stuffing the crescent rolls with peanut butter and raspberry jam.)
