Black Forest Shortcut Strudel
8-ounce can of refrigerated crescent rolls
2 single-size Hershey chocolate bars (1.55 ounce size)
About 2 to 3 tablespoons cherry preserves
Unroll the crescent dough on a greased baking sheet. Press seams gently to seal. You now have a single rectangle of dough. Break Hershey bars into individual squares and arrange them on the middle third of the dough. Using 2 spoons, dot evenly with cherry preserves. Slash sides of dough every few inches and fold sides over filling. Bake at 350 degrees about 20 minutes or until golden brown and flaky. If you like, drizzle with a glaze:
½ cup confectioners sugar
About 2 teaspoons milk
½ teaspoon vanilla flavoring
Mix until sugar dissolves, adding a few drops more milk if needed. Put the glaze in a sandwich bag and cut off a tiny corner. Squeeze glaze back and forth across the strudel. Serves 6 to 8 for dessert.
