Hocus Pocus Buns

  • Author: Erin
  • Total Time: 28 mins
  • Yield: 8 buns 1x


These fun spooky season treats start with crescent roll buns stuffed with a cinnamon sugar marshmallow that disappears as the buns bake, leaving behind a sweet hollow center.


  • 1 can of crescent roll dough - 8 count
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 3 TBS butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 TBS ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.  Spray 8 compartments in a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Open up the crescent roll dough and separate into triangles.  Lay out the triangles on a tray or baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Dip a marshmallow into the melted butter, making sure it's fully coated.  Then dip the marshmallow into the cinnamon sugar, rotating to coat on all sides.
  5. Place the marshmallow on the wide end of a dough triangle.  Repeat with remaining marshmallows.
  6. Roll up each triangle, starting with the wide end.  Take your time and pinch together the seams on the dough, being certain that all holes and edges are well-sealed (the marshmallow will leak out otherwise).
  7. Place each bun into the prepared muffin tin.  Bake on center rack for 11-13 minutes or until lightly golden.
  8. Let the buns cool in the pan for a few minutes and then loosen with a butter knife and serve warm.
