Description

Inside is a cave of sticky, cinnamon-y deliciousness! A great way to start the weekend!

Ingredients

  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ⅛ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 whole Tube Of Crescent Rolls, 8 Count
  • 8 whole Marshmallows, Regular Size
  • ¼ cups Butter, Melted
  • ¼ cups Confectioners Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1-½ teaspoon Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Nuts (optional)

Preparation

My local library has a Friends of the Library book sale once a month. You can fill a paper bag for only three dollars! My latest haul was mostly cookbooks. This recipe was on a newspaper clipping that had been tucked into one of the pages. Gotta love those seventies recipes!!

Preheat oven to 375F. Generously grease 8 wells of a dark, non-stick muffin tin with butter. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with foil. Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Separate the crescent roll dough into 8 triangles. Dip a marshmallow into melted butter and then roll in cinnamon sugar. Then place in the center of a dough triangle and wrap dough around marshmallow, sealing edges tightly. Dip sealed side in butter and place, sealed side down, into prepared muffin tin. Repeat until all 8 wells are full. Place on foil-lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.

Meanwhile, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth.

When puffs are done, immediately remove to serving platter with tongs. Take care, trying to conserve the melted marshmallow mixture inside of each puff. Half of mine popped open, but they were still yummy! Drizzle with icing and sprinkle with nuts.

The first time I made this, I didn’t use a cookie sheet underneath. The marshmallows bubbled over the edge and formed a nice black puddle on the bottom of my newly cleaned oven. Consider yourself warned!

Great googlie-mooglie… a cave of sticky, cinnamon-y deliciousness?!? I want to live there. I’ve never been a big marshmallow person, except when a raging campfire and smores were involved. But since I made those rocky road cake mix cookies, I’m kinda thinkin I might need to start eating more of them. I guess I’m (gasp!) maturing into my marshmallowness, because these sound fabulous.

I made these tonight for the kids (okay, me), and they were delish! I had some of Ree’s cinnamon and sugar butter, so I melted some of that and used it to dip the marshmallows in instead of the sugar mixture called for in the recipe. Yum! This one will definitely go in the recipe box for sure!
