When my friend Candy called the other day, and asked if I had ever seen these CUTE carrots, I knew I had to try them. The original recipe is found here.
The recipe says you need a cream horn. We didn't know what that was. Candy called a few stores, and found them at Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City, UT. We were in the minivan, and on the road to get them ten minutes later.
They are $2.99 for a set of 6. I got 2 sets.
The recipe calls for wrapping crescent rolls around the cream horn. I happened to have Rhodes Bake and Serve in the freezer, so I used that instead. It looks kind of sick in the picture, but I painted egg yolks mixed with orange dye on the rolls.
I filled them with egg salad sandwich filling. The kids were impressed, and they are getting one for lunch tomorrow.
My brothers always made these growing up, and called them, "vanishing rolls.," because the marshmallow vanishes. They baked them in muffin tins. I just baked them on a cookie sheet. All you do, is flatten roll dough. Roll a marshmallow in butter, and sprinkle in cinnamon sugar. Put the marshmallow in the center of the dough, and pinch all the sides shut around the marshmallow. Roll in butter again, and sprinkle in cinnamon. Bake according to package directions.
Just like the garden tomb, the rolls were empty. They were a great opening for our Easter lesson prepared by my parents.
I had to include a pic of my man, and sweet baby in their Easter clothes. Well, Rhett was done, and about to go down for a nap. But... his outfit was so cute! My hubby is cute too :)
