Pain du Chocolat a.k.a. chocolate bread

2 packages crescent rolls (just bear with me on this)
2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
additional powdered sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat baking chocolate and butter in microwave until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is melted too. (You can do this part over the stove in a small saucepan, but the microwave works well for this). Once chocolate/butter mixture is smooth, add 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, a little at a time and mix well. Stir in vanilla. Open crescent rolls and unroll each on an ungreased baking sheet. Place about a tablespoon of chocolate mixture on large end of triangle. Roll up and tuck corners of rolls underneath~ it should look like a small rectangle. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Dust tops with powdered sugar. Wait for 3-4 minutes until rolls have cooled slightly, then enjoy!
