These easy Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings are out of this world delicious! No one will ever suspect that the secret ingredient is a can of soda.


  • 2 large Granny Smith apples
  • 2 cans (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup Mountain Dew


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 13x9-inch baking dish with 2 Tbsp butter. Set aside.
  2. Peel and core granny smith apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices. Roll one apple slice in one crescent roll. Place in the buttered baking dish.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt 1 cup butter with sugar. Barely stirring, remove from heat when butter is melted. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
  4. Pour over crescent rolls. Then pour the 1 cup of Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan ONLY. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the rolls are completely cooked.
  6. Serve warm with ice cream (be sure so spoon some of the sauce from the pan over the top)!


  • Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings are good on their own, but they're even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream on top!
  • Make sure not to pour any Mountain Dew on the dumplings themselves. Stick to the sides of the pan so you don't get the dough soggy. If liquid gets on top of the crescent dough it won't brown and will turn into a mushy mess. . . but a tasty mushy mess at least.
  • Use REAL Mountain Dew here! In a pinch a can of Sprite will work. Just don't choose diet soda!
  • Don't use a pan smaller than 9 x 13. The dumplings need just a little room to breath to be at their best!
