It’s Magic, Magic…

We have been busy working through our Summer Bucket List. We've actually done 14 things on the list so far...pretty ambitious.

Last night we needed a little project for the boys who were tired from swimming all day and crabby/ fighting with each other.  Do you know those days where they are perfect angels one minute and little devils the next or am I the only one? That is for another blog post, I guess.

So we made Hocus Pocus Rolls.  Why the Hocus Pocus? We heard they are magical. Really? Magical food? Let's find out.

You need:
One can of crescent rolls
One marshmallow for each roll
Cinnamon sugar
Melted Butter
Wax paper and a baking tray
A cute assistant or two

Get your very cute assistant to count out the marshmallows and hope that he doesn't lick any of them. Preheat oven to 350.

Roll the marshmallows in the melted butter. Then roll them in the cinnamon sugar.

Wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll, pinching the dough together securely.

When all crescents are rolled they will look like this...

Bake them for 12 minutes. And then Hocus Pocus...the marshmallow disappears! How? Where does it go?

And boy oh boy...they are tasty! Amazingly, there wasn't any marshmallow taste at all.

One Miner adjustment that we would have made is to roll out the crescent roll a little, so that there are more dough to pinch around the marshmallow. On some of the rolls the pinch wasn't tight enough, so a little marshmallow ran out onto the baking tray. What was left inside did disappear though. Weird!

Happy Magic!
