Ingredients

  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (8 rolls total)
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 28 mini marshmallows or 8 large if baking in the oven.

Instructions

  • For the Instant Pot: Open the crescent rolls and line each cup in your egg bite mold with the roll dough. 
  • Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. 
  • Coat the 28 mini marshmallows in the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon and sugar. 
  • Place 4 covered marshmallows into each cup. Fold the remaining dough over to seal the marshmallow inside of the roll. 
  • Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Cover the silicone mold with the silicone cover or foil. Place on the trivet in the Instant Pot. 
  • Cook on Manual HIGH for 12 minutes. Quick release the pressure. 
  • Flip the mold upside down onto a plate to remove the rolls. Let the rolls sit and cool for 5 minutes before eating.
  • For the Oven: Open the crescent rolls and separate each triangle. 
  • Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. 
  • Use large marshmallows, roll each one in the butter and then in the cinnamon and sugar. 
  • Place the marshmallow into the center of the crescent roll dough and then pull up the sides and completely seal the marshmallow inside of the roll. 
  • Repeat with remaining dough and marshmallows. 
  • Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
