Perfect for breakfast—especially for kids who balk at the meal.

My youngest daughter makes these for breakfast and any time friends are over it is always requested. I keep these ingredients in my home all the time.


3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
2 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 ounce (8-ounce) can reduced-fat crescent dinner rolls


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Coat 8 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Dip each marshmallow in melted margarine and roll in sugar mixture.
  3. Separate dough into triangles. Wrap one triangle around each marshmallow and pinch dough together. Place in a muffin tin. If there is any extra margarine, drizzle over top of rolls. Bake 8 to 12 minutes.
