Chicken Crescent Rolls

This is one of my favorite recipes from my mom that we don't make anymore (cursed milk allergies!), but I really miss it, so I thought I would share it so others could enjoy it. :0) It's pretty simple, and oh so good!
1/2 pound chicken breasts
2 packages Pillsbury crescent rolls
1 package Cream Cheese
1/8 - 1/4 cup milk
Garlic powder to taste (maybe a tablespoon if you like garlic)

Cook and cut up two chicken breasts). Unroll 2 pkgs of Pillsbury crescent rolls. Keep them in rectangles (they normally would be divided into 8 triangles). Squeeze or "smoosh" the lines together in the middle of the rectangle so the dough will hold together.
Soften a package of cream cheese with a little milk (to taste, but less than a quarter cup - you want the sauce thick) and stir in garlic powder to taste. Use a whisk so it all mixes well.
Add chicken to cream cheese mix and put a mound in middle of dough rectangle (about the size of an ice cream scoop). Fold sides of rectangle over chicken mix and squeeze edges to seal.
Bake in oven for 11 to 13 minutes at 375 (follow the instructions for the rolls), and enjoy!

Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats

This is the Rice Krispies Treat we make in Iceland, no marshmallows but what's better than that??? Yes CHOCOLATE. The recipe isn't very accurate and I apologize for that- but you don't have to worry it's super easy and super yummy.

In a large saucepan combine and melt together

5 tbsp golden cornsyrup
100 grams Chocolate (that's about 3.5 US ounces)
100 grams Butter (one stick of butter is usually 113 grams so almost a stick)

Add Rice Krispies and cover it with the chocolate mix. I don't know how much Rice Krispies I add - I just pour it until it seems to be using up most of the mix. With a spoon but it in papercupcake forms and cool it until they are sticking well together.
