Marshmallow Rolls...Yum!

Last week I read online where someone had an 'official' appreciation week for their significant other and I decided that this week, starting Sunday would be 'Matt Appreciation Week'.  When I brought this up to Matt one night last week you should have seen the glimmer in his eye when I told him about my plan.  I asked him to pick several recipes that he would want made and the first thing out of his mouth was "Marshmallow Rolls!"

Marshmallow Rolls were a special treat that Matt's mom made for him when he was growing up and he loves them so much!  When we were first dating Matt would make these for us on lazy Saturday mornings, but I've pretty much taken over the creation of these delicious rolls now.  Although it was a bit intimidating to be the girlfriend/fiance'/wife making Matt's mom's recipe!  There were times there when I just told Matt he should make them, but he would give me the big puppy dog eyes and say, "But you do such a great job..."  And I would cave in!  Do you make recipes that once belonged to your in-laws or do you stay at a safe distance from them?

These rolls are pretty freakin' delicious, but not the least bit healthy, especially if like Matt... you eat the whole pan by yourself!

Marshmallow Rolls

2 T butter, melted
8 marshmallows
1 tube crescent rolls
1 1/2 t Cinnamon
1/4 c Sugar

Melt butter in microwave.  You can use more butter if you're so inclined, but this is the minimum amount I've ever gotten away with without having to melt more butter to finish the recipe.  Roll the marshmallow in a dish of melted butter.
Combine cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and roll the marshmallow in the C-S mixture.
Unwrap and separate crescent rolls.  Place marshmallow on crescent roll and wrap up.
Roll the ball of dough in the melted butter.
Place in muffin tin.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly and serve warm!  Enjoy!
Hello Lover!
Note:  I made this pan of rolls and then ate a banana and went for a 5 mile run.  I only ate one when I got home... it was the last one left!

These rolls are easy to make and delicious too!  I always put up a fuss about making them, but they are always a hit with Matt, as well as house guests.  Try them this weekend for Mother's Day!
