Pepperoni String Cheese Roll Ups

I like to make fun dinners for the nights when my husband is away on business. It has become something the kids and I really enjoy and look forward to. I found this excellent idea for Pepperoni String Cheese Roll Ups on The Girl Who Ate Everything. The Garlic butter glaze on top really takes these to the next level. We loved them!!! The kids loved them so much that they begged me to make them for dad when he got home. So we ate them 2 nights in a row. Yum!

Pepperoni String Cheese Roll Ups

1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough
4 cheese sticks, halved
1 (3.5 ounce) package sliced pepperoni
optional - marinara or ranch sauce for dipping

Garlic Butter Glaze:
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Take each triangle of crencent roll dough and place about 6 pepperoni on the bottom of the triangle. Place half of a cheese stick on top and roll up. Place seam side down on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown.

While rolls are cooking, combine the melted butter, Italian seasonings, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.

When rolls are done remove from the oven and brush with the garlic butter glaze. Serve with marinara or ranch for dipping.
