My sister gave me this recipe and its simply called...

APPLE THINGYS

2 cans crescent rolls
2 apples, cored, peeled & cut into 8 slices 
(I use 4 apples and cut each apple into quarters)
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
(1) 12oz. can Mountain Dew

Wrap each apple slice in a crescent roll triangle
Arrange in a 9x13 pan
Melt Butter & mix in sugar & cinnamon 
Pour over croissant covered apples
Pour 1 can of Mountain Dew over the top
Bake in 350 oven for 45 min.
  Enjoy!!

Sharing a second recipe just because I love to cook and bake :)
 
Candy Cane Fudge

2 (10 oz) pkgs vanilla baking chips
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
1 1/2 cups crushed candy canes
1 dash red or green food coloring(I left my fudge white)

Directions

Line an 8 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and grease the foil.
Combine the vanilla chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat.  Stir frequently until almost melted. Remove from heat and continue to stir until smooth.  When chips are completely melted, stir in the peppermint extract, food coloring and candy canes.
Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan.  
Chill for 2 hours, then cut into squares.
