These cheesy pepperoni pizza crescent sticks are a great snack or appetizer to serve, as they are sure to please!

Ingredients

1
package (12 count) string cheese (low moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese)
24
pepperoni slices (from 6-oz package)
1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dough sheet
1
cup marinara sauce

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Unwrap string cheese, and cut a 2-inch slit along one side of each, leaving ends intact. Cut pepperoni slices in half, and insert 4 halves into each cut side of mozzarella sticks.
  • 2 On large cutting board, unroll dough; cut short side into 12 equal strips. Starting at one end of mozzarella stick, wind one strip of crescent dough around cheese, completely covering cheese. Seal ends, and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat for remaining dough and mozzarella sticks.
