resurrection rolls

This is one of our favorite things to make around Easter. It's a great way to talk about the resurrection of Christ with your kids. And it's fun to see their reaction when they open the "tomb" after the baking is done.

Plus, they are yum-my!

  • 1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • Melted butter
  • Cinnamon

  • Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb.
  • Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ.
  • Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial.
  • Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow.
  • Make sure all seams are pinched together well. (Otherwise the marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams)
  • Bake according to package directions.
  • Cool.
  • Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!

Do you have a favorite Easter recipe or tradition? I would love to hear about it!

I hope you enjoy this blessed weekend.

FUN idea! We did Easter Story cookies this year, but I've never seen this recipe before.

We do this ever Easter (and Christmas ) as well! It's definitely a favorite with every member of the family. The kids love making them. We look forward to eating them tomorrow!
