I made these for my son for breakfast before school today & he really loved them. My only small complaint was that the marshmallow filling leaked out even though I sealed them up really well. Thanks for sharing.

Made these for Easter morning breakfast and they are yummy and what a great object lesson for the kids. The tomb was empty! I didn't use crescent rolls, I made cinnamon bun dough in my ABM and tore off small balls of dough and wrapped the marshmallows in that, then brushed with butter and topped with the sugar mixture, no spillage at all! Just a whole lot of caramelized sugar on the pan from the coating that didn't stay on the buns...oh yum!

I've been making these rolls with biscuit dough for years. The crescent rolls even make it better. ONE tip that I learned a while back, NEVER cook these on a flat pan make sure you use a pan with sides so the melted marshmallow does not drip all over the oven.
