However, this week Nicole and Charlotte made it back in the kitchen for another yummy recipe. We heard viewers requested some recipes with extra calories. We were happy to oblige. 

This week’s recipe includes easy, delicious Danish desserts! Yes, you- need-to-try-this-recipe. Warning: you can hurt yourself if you eat too much of this enticing food.

Watch the YouTube video with Nicole and Charlotte making three different delicious Danish Desserts. The video is linked below.

Ingredients:

For a Jam or Jelly Danish:

1 – pack of 8 oz. cream cheese brought to room temperature 

1 – pack of crescent rolls

1/2 – cup of sugar

1 – tablespoon of lemon juice

4 – teaspoons of your favorite jam or jelly.

For a Chocolate Danish:

1 – pack of 8 oz. cream cheese brought to room temperature

1 – pack of crescent rolls

1/4 – cup of sugar

1 – teaspoon of vanilla – add a little extra vanilla if you want to have a little more warmth in your sweet. 

Chocolate syrup and/or chocolate chips (use as much dark goodness as you want 🙂

Glaze:

1/2 – cup of powdered sugar

1 – teaspoon of vanilla

2 – 3 teaspoons of milk

Directions:

First, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out the crescent rolls on a non-stick cooking pan and pinch together any holes in the dough. 

Cut one inch into the right and left side of the dough, leaving about two and a half to three inches of dough uncut in the middle. The top and bottom parts of the dough should be uncut as well. 

Beat cream cheese with the other ingredients you want in a small bowl using a fork.

Apply the cream cheese mixture to the middle of the dough. 

Braid, the one-inch dough, slits together down the entire dough sheet. 

Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes. 

While baking, make the glaze to go on top of the Danish by mixing together the ingredients with a fork.

After the Danish is golden on top and done on the bottom, take it out of the oven, wait for about five minutes, drizzle the glaze on top and enjoy!
