Chocolate Cream Cheese Danish

Recipe by
30 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes | Servings: 8


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • 4 oz. chopped semi sweet dark chocolate (or chips)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cream


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Open crescent roll dough and unroll, leaving crescents in rectangles. On a piece of parchment paper, unroll crescent dough being sure to not separate any of the triangular pieces. Press edges together and pinch any holes back together.
  3. Carefully spread cream cheese filling down the center of the dough to be about 2-3 inches wide. Sprinkle cream cheese filling with chopped chocolate. Cut 1 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough. Fold slats of dough up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until filling is set and crescent dough is golden in color. Cool before removing from baking sheet.
  5. Once danish has cooled, remove to serving platter.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla, cream cheese and milk to create icing. You may need to add more milk to get the desired consistency. Drizzle icing over danish.
  7. Cut into pieces and serve.
