Caterpillar Cocoons

These caterpillar cocoons are so easy to make. Your kids will enjoy making and eating these.


1 can Refrigerated Crescent Rolls (8 rolls) 
8 Sausage Links, cooked and cooled

This recipe was created by one of the earlier owners of KidzCrafts.com so it uses American ingredients - specifically Crescent Rolls in a can. 

For the Australians reading this page - a can crescent rolls is basically a can filled with flakey pastry - the kind used to make crossiants, so you could substitute the can of crescent rolls with a pack of frozen flakey pastry.  This recipe is basically a crossiant wrapped around a sausage and mustard in the centre. 

Caterpillar Cocoon Directions:

Cut each sausage lengthwise and squeeze a little mustard on each half.

Remove Crescent Rolls from package and form into triangle pieces. Put two pieces of sausage together, mustard side to mustard side – this is the caterpillar larvae.  Lay one mustard-sausage on the wide end of dough triangle and carefully roll up as instructed on the package.

Pinch/nip the ends and fold a little under the roll. Bake according to package instructions. Remove from oven and let the “Cocoons” cool before serving.
