This is a Pillsbury Grand Prize winner. It's created by wrapping refrigerated crescent dough around a cinnamon-sugar coated marshmallow. The marshmallow melts during baking, forming a sweet hollow puff.

How to Make Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a small bowl.
    Separate dough into 16 triangles.
    Dip a marshmallow into melted butter.
    Roll in sugar-cinnamon 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 butter; place butter side down in ungreased large muffin cup.
    Repeat with remaining marshmallows.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees 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 muffin cups and drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze and nuts, if desired.
  3. GLAZE: In a small bowl, combine all glaze ingredients, except nuts. Sprinkle with nuts after drizzling glaze.
