hocus pocus rolls

although this may be the world’s most unhealthy snack, it looked so delicious i couldn’t help but try it. as with a lot of unhealthy things, they are super easy!

basically, you wrap a marshmallow in a crescent roll with butter, cinnamon, and sugar. then pop it in the oven and “hocus pocus” the marshmallow disappears.

eat at allie’s actually calls them “resurrection rolls” as she relates them to the christian resurrection story, but the original pinned labeled them “hocus pocus buns” so i’ve decided to call them hocus pocus rolls.

i note this in case you are christian and would like to use them as an illustration for the resurrection. i also note this because eat at allie’s tutorial has you dip the marshmallow in the butter and then in the cinnamon sugar before wrapping it in the roll (as each part of the process is representative of a part of the story).

TIP: i found it much easier to just brush the crescent roll with the butter and then sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top before wrapping the marshmallow inside.

WARNING: as you can see in the pic above, most the rolls exploded open and the marshmallow melted out everywhere. i am not sure if this is because i didn’t pinch off the rolls well enough or if it was because i needed to leave an air hole to allow the marshmallow to expand without creating enough pressure to open the roll.

no matter, they were still super tasty! (but then again i love crescent rolls and marshmallows)
