This is such a great, fun dessert idea… and one you can pull together in less than 30 minutes!  It’s fun, funfetti-inspired, and I just love that it’s something the kids can help with.  In fact, aside from the actual baking, my daughter made every other part of these 🙂

When TruMoo came to me with the idea to create fun snacks that go great with a glass of chocolate milk, I was excited to work with them!!  I love TruMoo’s quality, and they have something exciting to share… TruMoo Calcium Plus is NEW from TruMoo!  And TruMoo Calcium Plus low-fat milk has 50% more calcium than regular low-fat milk with the same great TruMoo taste.  I love that they use NO high fructose corn syrup, and I can feel great about serving their chocolate milk to my kids.

From start to finish, these will take you about 25 minutes… how awesome is that?  My daughter had a blast making these!  I love cooking with her, seeing her enjoy making things 🙂  And of course, seeing her enjoy the final product!

The idea for these funfetti cheesecake stuffed crescent rolls came from my love of all things funfetti, and my love of crescent rolls.  I love to use them in savory dishes, like these chicken bacon and ranch rolls, but this was my first time using them for a sweet dish.  Let me tell you, it won’t be the last 🙂  The buttery-ness really goes well with sweet flavors!

If you wanted to, you could substitute the sugar for some agave or honey, depending on what you have on hand.

One of my favorite part is the multi-colored inside… it looks like tie-dye!
