Entertaining during the holiday season is a piece of cake. Says who? Says me. Well, it is when you have a few entertaining tricks up your sleeves.

For instance, traditional cinnamon rolls take a while to prepare, but I make my Crescent Roll Cinnamon Rolls with – you guessed it – crescent rolls. No yeast involved! After drizzling the Crescent Roll Cinnamon Rolls with icing, add adorable and tasty PEEPS Marshmallow Snowmen on top of each roll. You’ve got delicious cinnamon rolls in less than 20 minutes!

Crescent Roll Cinnamon Rolls are easy to make and fun to eat.

When it comes to cinnamon rolls, I’m all about that icing! When I top my warm Crescent Roll Cinnamon Rolls with Marshmallow PEEPS, it takes cinnamon rolls to a whole new level and the kids love these. Who am I kidding? The adults love um’ too!

Crescent Roll Cinnamon Rolls are popular with the kids and adults.

When it comes to stress-free holiday entertaining, here’s how I do it!

Stress-Free Holiday Entertaining

  1. Forget about perfection – Things may go wrong. Go with it and remember, it’s the wacky stuff that we remember and laugh about later.
  2. Keep it simple – Now is not the time to try out that new, mile-long recipe. Semi-homemade recipes are the way to go.
  3. Decorate the day before – It’s one less thing you have to do the day of.
  4. You don’t have to light candles – These cinnamon rolls will make your house smell amazing.
  5. Your guests just want to have fun . . . with you! Get out of the kitchen and mix and mingle!
  6. Stock up on Marshmallow PEEPS – My son-in-law qualifies for the biggest Marshmallow PEEPS fan! I make sure I have plenty of PEEPS Delights on hand throughout the holidays for snacking and stuffing in stockings.
