Reduced Fat Strawberry And Marshmallow Dessert Wreath


I have a confession, I don't care for the taste of marshmallows very much. I usually only like them covered in chocolate. My kids however love them.   Today I am sharing a new crescent wreath recipe, for a reduced fat dessert. The filling of this wreath is fat free! Combined with reduced fat crescent rolls, it makes for a dessert with less guilt.

Reduced Fat Strawberry And Marshmallow Dessert Wreath
Serves 8

Ingredients:

1 can of reduced fat crescent rolls 8 count 
8 tsp of fat free strawberry cream cheese
8 tsp marshmallow creme 
pastel sugar sprinkles
non stick butter flavored spray
optional: marshmallows for decorating 

Directions:


Lay out crescent dough as pictured above, in the shape of a star, on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Place a tsp of cream cheese, and marshmallow creme on each roll. 


Roll up crescents, tucking the end under, making a circular wreath. Don't over fill wreath with filling, or it will get messy when you bake.  Spray dough with non stick butter flavored spray, and sprinkle with sugar sprinkles, we used green.  Bake in a preheated 375 F degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. 


Optional, while it bakes, make some flowers to decorate wreath with, out of marshmallows and pastel sugar sprinkles. We used giant roaster size marshmallows because that's what we had on hand, smaller ones would have worked better. I cut the marshmallows, and let my kids dip them in sugar, and assemble into flowers. 


If some of your filling oozes out during baking, you may want to trim it off before serving.  


It's finally feeling like Spring here in Northern California. What have you been up to? Please share at our Anything Goes weekly linky party.
