Mountain dew apple cobbler recipe

Flavorful Mountain Dew Apple Cobbler

This Mountain Dew apple cobbler recipe is super quick and easy, and especially fabulous served warm with vanilla ice cream. I’m not sure how it all works out and science behind using Mountain Dew in this recipe, but somehow it does. You would never know that it is the secret ingredient!

Now, I’ll admit that at first, I thought this recipe was kind of funny. But, my husband is a Mountain Dew fan so I thought it would be a novelty to try. It was actually really good and I would definitely have it again!

These Mountain Dew apple dumplings are very sweet, delicious, and addicting. I love how the ingredients and prep are super easy. In fact, the apple dumplings look and taste so much more fancy and delicious than you would ever expect from how easy it is to make them!

Rolling apple in crescent roll


Now you already know this apple cobbler has Mountain Dew in it – that was pretty obvious from the title of this recipe. The real magic is that this is an apple cobbler with crescent rolls. Using the crescent rolls is what makes this recipe so easy & quick.

The crescent dough ends up tasting so much better than crescent dough usually does – with a delicious, crisp sugar topping – my favorite part. The apples cook up nice and soft. Plus, there’s some extra syrup in the bottom of the pan that you can spoon over the top of the dumplings when serving.

I have not tried this recipe with a substitution before, but if you would like to try it with something other than Mountain Dew, there are some options. Apple cider, sparkling apple juice, apple juice, Sprite, or Ginger Ale could all be great substitutes for Mountain Dew in this apple cobbler recipe.
