That’s when I begged her for the recipe. Luckily for me and for all of you, she was happy to share.

Of course I do feel the need to start with a word of caution for those of you, who despite the name “Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings,” were expecting some sort of whole-food-clean-eating-organic-gluten-free-or-otherwise-healthy dessert. It is not healthy in any way. It is full of preservatives and white sugar and probably even some high-fructose-corn-syrup. If this bothers you, just click away now! For the rest of you, keep reading.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and core apples, then slice into 8 wedges each, or use an apple peeler-corer-slicer to do it.

Roll each crescent around a slice of apple.

Step 3: Wrap 1 apple wedge in crescent roll, then pinch seams together to cover apple completely. Place in dish; repeat with remaining apple wedges.
