  • 1 8 pk crescent rolls
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 ⁄4 cup melted butter


  • Set oven according to crescent roll instructions.
  • Prep baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Unroll crescents and place on parchment.
  • Melt butter in a skillet or microwave and pour into a small bowl.
  • Combine sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  • Using a toothpick inserted into the end of a marshmallow or your fingers, dip the marshmallow into the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon/sugar until thoroughly covered.
  • Place cinnamon/sugar covered marshmallow on center of crescent roll and carefully wrap completely.
  • Repeat for all crescent rolls.
  • *If desired, drizzle the baked crescents with leftover melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar or leave plain to add sifted confectioners sugar after baking.
  • Bake approximately 10 minutes or until rolls are cooked and lightly browned.
  • Cool slightly before serving.



Serves 8 (batch can be doubled).
  • For a more homespun rustic look, bake on a sheet pan.
  • The marshmallow will most likely ooze out of a few while baking, so parchment covered baking sheets are highly recommended.
  • Alternatively, bake in muffin cups inside muffin tins for a more uniform look.
  • When going through this with children, several rolls will have marshmallows oozing out, find the finished ones where there's no evidence or hole in the dough for a more impactful lesson.
