Cherry Pops

Follow up to apple dumplings: Well I didn't have any apples or mountain dew, but I did have cola and cherries, so I came up with this. So far test results are very favorable.


1 can cherries
5 oz cola
1 can crescent rolls
3 oz chocolate frosting, melted
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup powdered sugar
4 tbl milk
3 tbl brown sugar


Pour the cherries into a strainer over a bowl. Pour the cola over the cherries. Let drain. Pour the cherries into the cola syrup mixture. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Open the can of rolls, sprinkle with a little of the powdered sugar. Brush one side of each with the chocolate. Add 3 or 4 cherries. Fold over, and pinch the seams together to close.

Place them into a greased cake pan. When they are all arranged, sprinkle the brown sugar and the rest of the cherries, and then pour ½ cup of the cola cherry syrup over them.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

Make a light icing with powdered sugar and a little milk. Drizzle over the top.

Tip: Try putting the crescent roll dough in a dish over a bowl of ice to keep the dough really cold. As the dough warms it gets sticky and soft. Therefore making harder to work with.
