Monkey tail  crescent rolls are my recipe of the day for Back to School treats week.  For this event, I will be posting several times this week.  Of those, I will be  posting recipes that kids will enjoy for breakfast,  snacks and  dessert.

And it’s been a weird  year for  back to school so the usual recipes parents look for when getting  ideas for meals may not apply.

Brown Bags and Home Lunches

There may be  some eating at home, and some eating at school, depending  on the area.

Today I am sharing an easy  dessert that can be baked up  ahead, although I do like them served warm with ice cream  on the side.

So if you  are  packing for a brown bag lunch this is still good with the caramel sauce put  into a little container then dunking the tails like a dip.
