Aaaand welcome to “more random recipes nobody needs”. Here we have another doozy- Gooey Chocolate Marshmallow Puffs- they’re a little tacky, shamefully easy and by no means low in fat or sugar. But hey, a girl’s got to do something to pass the time. And these are pretty darn tasty, if I do say so myself! I got the idea from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook while browsing in a Half Price Books store with my sis. Basically, just a crescent roll with a marshmallow baked inside it. I took it from there and somehow ended up with these little guys. I’m a little embarrassed to say we pretty much scarfed these (all) down in record time. Hubby was especially impressed.

So if you’re looking for something sweet and tasty that’s just about as easy as they come- look no further! These are a great little snack!

Gooey Chocolate Marshmallow Puffs

1 package Pillsbury Crescent roll dough
1/2 cup prepared chocolate ganache (equal parts chocolate and heavy cream melted together), or chocolate chips if you don’t have any ganache on hand
handful mini marshmallows
cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Unroll the crescent dough and spoon a little ganache (or a few chocolate chips) in the center of each triangle. Top with 4 or 5 mini marshmallows and fold the dough up like a little purse, making sure to seal all the edges. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with the remainder of the rolls, then bake for 12-15 minutes or until the puffs are golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

  2. Oh my! And what a coincidence, too – I just posted marshmallows (sugar-free and made without without corn syrup) on my blog today. Do you think these would work with puff pastry, or maybe profiteroles/cream puffs?

  12. Why must you do this to me?! Last week it was the chocolate filled cookies that I HAD to make (and were ridiculously delish, by the way. The salt on top was the BEST), and now these?! I’m blaming you for any weight I gain this summer….

  21. There is no such thing as a “random recipe nobody needs”!

    Seriously!

    These look tasty, AND they’re perfect for my husband’s football crowd…easy to make, and can be easily made in several batches when they wolf them all down. LOL

    Thanks for posting it!

  27. I’m a relatively new baker…what kind of chocolate do you use to make the ganache? And heavy cream….I’ve never used it, is that in where the milk is? (I feel so ashamed asking that!) These look delish and I’d love to make them for a meeting I’m hosting this week!

    [Reply]

    amy Reply:

    Emily-not silly questions at all! I use semi-sweet chocolate chips. And yes, heavy cream is in the dairy section close to the milk. These are perfect for beginning bakers! Very simple! Hope you like them!

  28. How about using Nutella instead of Cho. Chips?

  29. I work at a preschool, and during the summer we travel around the world in our imagination, and with our stomach…I really mean that, we read a book on monday, do an arts and crafts activity on Tuesday, color the flag on wedenesday, and cook and eat something of the country of the week. This week we are learning about France, and this recipe is easy to make with the kids, it sounds fun and delicious!!! I will be writing later about our experience. Thank you

  33. I just found your blog. I love it. I can’t wait to try so many of your recipes. I was wondering if i could use pie crust instead. Would you happen to know how long to bake it? Thanks

    [Reply]

    amy Reply:

    Hi Pam- I’m so happy you found me! You can definitely use pie crust. I’d check them after about 8-10 minutes, and pull them out when they’re golden brown. Hope you enjoy!
