  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Dough
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • water
  • cinnamon & sugar mixed together in a bowl


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  • Unroll crescent dough and separate each triangle.
  • Have children dip marshmallow in water. Roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  • Place marshmallow in the top of the crescent roll and roll into a crescent roll shape, then secure the sides by tucking them under and pinching them closed. (Don't worry about how they look! They will be yummy!)
  • Place on prepared cookie sheet and repeat with remaining 7 rolls.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown on the outside.
  • Let cool for a few minutes and then let the children pick a roll to open up. The marshmallow has disappeared!
  • Enjoy. ;)
