Ingredients

1/4
cup butter (do not use margarine)
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
2
tablespoons maple syrup or corn syrup
2
tablespoons whipping cream
2
tablespoons granulated sugar
1
tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon ground ginger
1/2
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4
teaspoon ground cloves
2
cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated reduced fat crescent dinner rolls
2
tablespoons butter, melted
16
large marshmallows
1/4
cup chopped nuts
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In 1-quart saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter. With 1 to 2 tablespoons of the melted butter, grease bottom and side of 12-cup fluted tube cake pan. To remaining melted butter, stir in brown sugar and maple syrup. Heat just to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in whipping cream.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix granulated sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Unroll dough from both cans and separate into 16 triangles. Brush each triangle with melted butter. Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar mixture onto each triangle to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top each with marshmallow. Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle, and rolling to opposite point. Completely cover marshmallow with dough; firmly pinch edges to seal. Arrange 8 balls in buttered pan. Sprinkle with nuts; spoon half of brown sugar mixture over dough. Place remaining 8 balls alternately over bottom layer. Spoon remaining brown sugar mixture over balls.
  • 3 Bake 25 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 3 minutes. Place heatproof serving platter upside down over pan; turn pan and platter over. Remove pan. Serve warm.
