Cinnamon Marshmallow Puffs

It’s that time of the week again, where I try to entice you with easy recipes to make for game time. I call it Football Food Friday, because I like alliteration. These little guys are something that I remember my mom making when I was little, and they randomly popped into my mind this week. They’re perfect, chewy, little bites that kind of taste like an inverted cinnamon roll, which I’m pretty sure means you could also eat these for breakfast…

A little recipe note – these are meant to be made with jumbo marshmallows, one per crescent. However, I only had mini marshmallows, so I did 10 mini ones per crescent.

Printable Recipe
Makes 8

For the puffs:
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 can crescent rolls
8 large marshmallows or 80 mini marshmallows
3 tbsp butter, melted

For the glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 tbsp milk

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, and cinnamon.

Roll the marshmallows in the butter, and then cover in the cinnamon mixture.

Place the marshmallows on a crescent triangle.

Roll up, pinching the ends to seal.

Dip the pinched end in the butter, and place in a muffin tin that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with each crescent roll.

Fill the empty tins with a splash of water (I’ve always heard to do this, but I’m not sure if it’s totally necessary?), and bake at 375 for 11-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Place each puff on a wire rack with foil underneath.

Mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until the glaze has reached desired consistency.

Pour the glaze over each puff.

Enjoy! (For breakfast or a game time snack)
