While TikTok may be known for its elaborate dances and POVs, I’ve seen a fair share of baking videos on the app. This time, I saw a recipe that I just had to make: marshmallow crescents. This recipe was simple enough to describe in a 40 second video and even easier to make.


  • Cup
  • 1/3 stick of butter
  • Marshmallows
  • Powdered sugar
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • Crescent rolls
  • Plate
  • Cookie sheet
  • Fork or skewer


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2: Melt the butter in the cup in the microwave for 45 seconds, then repeat in 10 second intervals until fully melted.

Step 3: Take a marshmallow and put it on the fork, then dip it in the butter.

Step 4: Roll the marshmallow on the fork in cinnamon sugar, then place onto a crescent roll and roll it into a ball.

Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you are out of crescent dough.

Step 6: Put all the crescents in the oven for 15 minutes.

Step 7: Once done cooking, brush the finished crescents with butter and dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon sugar.

Step 8: Enjoy!

I enjoyed making these almost as much as I enjoyed eating them. They were very sweet, but not in a sickly way. The marshmallow melted into the crescent roll, which definitely made it more of a bread-like dessert than a filled one. They were sticky and I would recommend eating them with a napkin nearby. The toppings brought the roll together, encompassing the whole roll in sweetness. These were easy and took barely any time to make, and I definitely think that I’ll make them again.
