In lieu of dying Easter eggs this year, we have decided to make Resurrection Rolls. The process of baking these yummies teaches the resurrection story and creates a simple visual for even the youngest of our kiddos to understand. And the end product is a delicious baked goody to enjoy as you honor the reason for the season. Happy Easter!
1 can of crescent rolls
about 3 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 a tablespoon of cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
2 tablespoons of melted butter
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) and lightly spray with non-stick spray. Set aside. Combine your sugar and cinnamon in a little bowl, set aside.
Unroll each of your crescent rolls into triangles (representing the wrappings Christ was wrapped in after he was crucified). Next, take each marshmallow (representing Christ) and first dip it in the melted butter (representing the oils they anointed Christ with) and then dip it in your spice mixture (representing the spices they used on Christ’s body after he died). Place each marshmallow in the center of a crescent roll and roll it up tightly completely covering the marshmallow (representing the tomb).
Place your baking sheet in the oven and bake about 10 to 12 minutes or until the outsides of your rolls are lightly browned.
Remove from oven. When you go to serve these and they are sliced open, you will notice that your marshmallow is gone…just like Christ was three days later.
