Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs

Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs

The first time I made the Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs I was living in Albany, NY back in 1987.  My husband’s family came to Albany one weekend, so I had made dinner, and I made these Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs for dessert.   It was the first time I had made these puffs, and I was so surprised when I bit into one of them.  You’ll have to make them to see what I mean.

Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs


Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs

¼ cup sugar

2 Tbsp. flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 (8 oz.) cans Pillsbury Refrigerated Quick Crescent Dinner Rolls

16 marshmallows

¼ cup margarine, melted

Glaze:    ½ powdered sugar

½ tsp. vanilla

2 to 3 tsp. milk

¼ cup chopped nuts

Heat oven to 375F.  In small bowl, combine sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Separate dough into 16 triangles.  Dip a marshmallow in melted margarine; roll in sugar mixture.  Place marshmallow on wide end of each triangle.  Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle, rolling to opposite point.  Completely cover marshmallow, pinching edges of dough to seal.  Dip in melted margarine; place margarine side down in ungreased large muffin cup.  Repeat with remaining marshmallows.  Bake at 375F. for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.  (To guard against spillage during baking, place foil or cookie sheet on rack below muffin cups.)  Immediately remove from pans.  In small bowl, combine all glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm rolls.  Sprinkle with nuts.   16 rolls
