  • 2 (8 oz.) tubes Pillsbury™ crescent rolls
  • 4 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/3 cup malted milk powder
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 T. sour cream
  • 2 T. melted butter
  • 16 malted milk egg candies


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add the cream cheese, malted milk powder, and sugar. Beat with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the vanilla extract and sour cream. Beat until combined. Scrape down the bowl and stir to incorporate any remaining bits that need mixed on. Set aside.
  • Remove the crescent rolls from the tube without pulling the dough apart. Place on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and cut them in 8 slices. Repeat with the second tube of crescent rolls.
  • Lay the slices on their side on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Press the centers down on each slice. Leave the outer 1 - 2 layers of dough.
  • Fill the holes with the malted milk cream cheese mixture with about 1 teaspoon of filling. Feel free to add more or less depending on your desired amount of filling. 
  • Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes until the crescent roll dough is golden brown. 
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. 
  • Pop the malted milk candies in the cheese filling.
  • Serve!
