The Ultimate Vanishing Breakfast Rolls

This recipe goes way back to the good old junior high days in Home Ec. I had forgotten about these little sticky pieces of heaven you can just pop in your mouth. I used to make them all the time when I lived at home. They were a real treat for breakfast, but I would make them for a dessert now. We had playgroup last week and we took these with us. We didn't leave with a single one. They were devoured! They are called vanishing breakfast rolls not only because they are gone in a snap, but because you bite into them and there is nothing inside! The yummy filling of marshmallow rolled in butter and cinnamon and sugar has vanished and melted all over the biscuit, making them sticky and delicious! These are so easy to make. I made them in 30 minutes and was out the door! So, if you are looking for a quick treat try these Vanishing Breakfast Rolls for breakfast or dessert and "wow" your family and friends!


Vanishing Breakfast Rolls

2 pkgs Refridgerated Biscuits (10 rolls per pack)
Marshmallows, Big or Mini
3 Tbsp Butter, melted
Cinnamon & Sugar mix (1/2 cup sugar to 1/2 tsp cinnamon)

Seperate biscuits and smash down with the palm of your hand. If you have big marshmallows you are ready to roll marshmallow in butter, then into cinnamon & sugar. If you have mini marshmallows take a handful and roll them into a ball with your hands, then roll in butter and cinnamon & sugar. Place one buttery, cinnamon & sugar marshmallow on each flattened biscuit and wrap biscuit around and pinch to seal. Place in sprayed cupcake pan seam side down and bake at the degrees according to biscuit package directions. Mine were 400 degrees. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown on top. Cool in pan for 5 minutes and serve. Yumm!!!

***In Home Ec we were taught to bake them on a cookie sheet pan, but I have found that they work best in muffin pans. That way your marshmallow filling melts right around your biscuit instead of all over the cookie sheet making a big mess and losing all your filling.



We are having some lovely snowy spring weather here where I live, so if you are like me you are going to need a warm comfort food. Pop these into the oven and enjoy a warm treat!
Happy Spring!!!

Wow, these sound SO good! I agree with you that they'd be more of a dessert for me, than a breakfast. So easy and so yummy.

Oooohhh...these look good. I've seen them made with crescent rolls, but I like the idea of the biscuit - less bread, more goo.

These things really are yummy! Using the muffin tins is a great idea, I'll have to try that next time.

OMG! We made these in home ec. in 7th grade! I had the recipe written down for years and then lost it. Thanks for posting.

I make these every Easter and we call them our Resurrection Rolls since they are empty. I LOVE the idea of putting them in a muffin pan so that all the yummy melted marshmallows stay on the roll. Great idea.
