An easy delicious treat that's perfect with a cup of coffee.

This little treat has a cream cheese and nut filling with a slight coffee flavor in the center of a crescent roll.  It's then drizzled with melted chocolate,what a nice little bundle of joy this is.  The best part is these Chocolate Cream Cheese Crescents are made with crescent rolls from the refrigerated section of your grocery store.  They are very easy to make, the baking time after assembled is about 15 minutes.  Need a quick delicious dessert in a hurry, this little number is it!  The recipe calls for macadamia nuts but you could use any nut you have on hand, I had almonds which I finely processed in my food processor.  What I love about baking with crescent rolls is they are so flaky and buttery all by themselves, the filling and chocolate just make them all that much better!  Enjoy!
