Chocolate Chip Calzone Swap

My husband had such a love for the chocolate chip calzone at Claim Jumper that he created a song for it. I have made them with pizza dough and regular size chocolate chips & white chocolate chips at home and they were delicious. Once day I had the idea to try to lighten this favorite dessert and we were amazed at how good it is. Try this won't be disappointed!

Pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
mini chocolate chips
no sugar added vanilla ice cream
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 375. Roll out crescent rolls and separate into triangles. Place mini chocolate chips (about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons) at thickest part of triangle and fold into pockets. Be sure to push together all seams to create a seal. Place 'calzone' on ungreased baking sheet. Cook for 9 minutes, or until just barely brown.

In a plate or shallow bowl, scoop 1 scoop of ice cream per calzone. Top with whipped cream and a small sprinkle of chocolate chip if desired.

Be sure to use reduced fat crescent rolls. Regular crescent rolls have an overpowering flavor and are too thick to really work well.
