Resurrection Rolls

For those of you celebrating Easter this weekend (or for those of you who just enjoy crescent rolls and marshmallows), here's a great recipe to make with the kids:

RESURRECTION ROLLS (you can find this recipe all over the Internet, so I can't take credit for it!)
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
large marshmallows, cut in half (a whole marshmallow will be too big)
melted butter

Give each child a triangle of dough.  This represents the tomb.
Give each child a marshmallow.  This represents Jesus' body.
Dip the marshmallow in butter and the roll it in cinnamon and sugar.  This represents the oils and spices that they used to anoint Jesus' body.
Wrap the marshmallow in the dough.  Make sure that the dough is entirely sealed up.  This represents Jesus' body in the tomb.
Bake according to the directions and allow the rolls to cool.  (Lay them on parchment paper so they don't stick to the pan.)
Break open the rolls and see what's inside!  (Preferably you should make these on Good Friday and open them up on Easter Sunday.)

I don't have a picture of these, but we are making them with the kids this weekend.  Happy Easter!
Pin It!
