Resurrection Rolls

Looking for a new way to tell the story of Easter to your kids?  This is a great (and tasty) way to do so!

This easy, hands-on, delicious recipe not only allows for a special treat, but it also opens the door to a unique way of sharing with the younger ones the story of Easter.

Share the truth of how Jesus was placed into the tomb (crescent rolls), and then explain how they prepared his body by putting oil and herbs on him (cinnamon and sugar). After waiting three long day (or twelve minutes, which feels like days to the children), we know that death could not hold Him in the grave, and He was alive.

The tomb is empty! He is risen. He is Risen Indeed.

Resurrection Rolls

1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, meltedSeparate rolls into eight triangles. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each marshmallow into butter, roll in cinnamon-sugar and place on a triangle. Pinch dough around marshmallow, sealing all edges. *Make sure to seal well or all the marshmallow will escape.

Dip tops of dough into remaining butter and cinnamon-sugar. Place with sugar side up in greased muffin cups. It helps to use jumbo muffin tins so that the juice doesn’t overflow.
Bake at 375 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes. Eat warm.
