refrigerated crescent rolls
2 1/2 teaspoons
These "Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs" have been popular since 1969--especially appealing to kids, but to adults alike! Since the marshmallow melts as it bakes, it is important to make sure the edges are really sealed well--if not, the center will ooze out and you'll lose much of that sweet goodness. This is a great recipe to make with kids--it's easy, they love the finished product, and they are really pleased with themselves!
We have made these in our family for at least 30 years and call them "Marshmallow Sweet Rolls", but we do not use flour, nuts or the glaze . Just dip the marshmallow in the butter and then in the sugar/cinnamon and roll them up to bake (We bake them in Muffin tins). These have to be made just before serving for the best taste, but I love them cold as well. The marshmallow melts and leaves the inside with an ooey gooey sweet glaze.
They are SOOOOOOO good and not a holiday goes by without them. We have twin 2 year olds who now help Mom make them and eat them and my Hubby as well as my sisters Hubby had never heard of such a roll, but now they are as addicted as we all are.
These were really good. Very sweet.
I love this recipe. I found it when I was just totally inspired by marshmallows and wanted to make something besides rice krispy treats. This was so much more amazing than expected. I halved the recipe because I just wanted to test it. I also didn't do a very good job of following the directions either, and it was still AMAZING! I just made them two days ago and my husband already wants them again. They might be a new favorite holiday treat. The only things I changed that I would suggest is adding the remainder of the cinnamon mixture into the glaze for some added kick. I guess I also dipped the buttered top into the cinnamon mixture before baking too. Extremely pleased!
I was looking for a quick dessert recipe given what I had on had, and this matched so I gave it a try! Really tasty and sticky and sugary! Wouldn't recommend for anyone worried about getting messy though - this is definitely not a company dessert, unless your company is a bunch of 8 year olds for a sleepover ;-)
This is a yummy recipe and very fun to play with variations. My favorite is dipping the marshmallows in spiced rum then butter and then rolling them in brown sugar. Then I brush the top of the pastry with more rum and butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Fun and easy recipe... definitely one of the kids favorites. It's so good that we rarely use the glaze because they're usually consumed right out of the oven... no one wants to wait. They're best while still warm.
Very interesting recipe...tasted like cinnamon rolls! Great fun for kids with a good end result!
