Crescent Dogs Holiday Wreath (with 3 ingredient dipping sauce)

Sometimes the best appetizers are the easiest ones and this is what you have with this crescent dogs holiday wreath. My girl and I tag teamed this appetizer but I really do have to get her a lot more credit because she rolled more than 3/4 of these crescent dogs and rocked the heck out of it too.  She can be a hit or miss if she wants to help in the kitchen but today she was a .

This appetizer really only takes 5 ingredients plus a couple of items to help it look more wreath-like. We will get to that one later.  Start by rolling out a container of crescents.  It’s actually more cost effective to use the ones that can be separated into 8 rolls.  But don’t separate.

Where there are “perforated” edges, try and push together than cut into 15 equal-ish squares.  I wish I was that person like my husband that pulls out a ruler and makes them equal but I’m not so you do your way.  Then with each square cut diagonally.  You will end up with 30 triangles.

Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper in 375°F oven for about 13-15 minutes.

But be prepared for your wreath to look like this roughly 10 minutes after showing up. The dipping sauce (recipe below) is so awesome.
