Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 16 Twists


  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 can refrigerator crescent rolls
  • 3 tablespoons Butter, melted
  • 8 Large Marshmallows, halved
  • 1/2 cup Confectioners' Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Separate dough into triangles. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise.
  2. Brush each halved triangle with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Place a marshmallow half at the wide end of each triangle.
  3. Roll up each triangle, starting from the wide end to enclose marshmallow. Pinch edges of dough to seal in the marshmallow. Place each twist on the prepared baking sheet, seam-side down, about two inches apart.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes or until twists are golden brown. Blend confectioners' sugar and milk in a small bowl and drizzle over the warm twists. Remove twists and place on a wire rack to cool.


- It's a good idea to keep cinnamon sugar in your pantry for when you need it. To make cinnamon sugar: Mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

- For chocolate twists drizzle melted semisweet chocolate instead of confectioners' sugar and milk.

- Even these can freeze! Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Remove the night before for a delicious breakfast treat.
