Resurrection Rolls

Among all the other goodies (jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, Cadbury eggs) that we will be munching on come Easter-

will be these sweet and meaningful Resurrection Rolls.

I had heard about Resurrection cookies, but I like these even better. The recipe is easy!

Here is what you need:
-1 can of crescent rolls
-large marshmallows
-sugar/cinnamon mixture
*Items represent how Jesus' body was prepared for burial.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Give your child a triangle of crescent rolls.
The crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
2. Next give your child a marshmallow.
This represents Jesus.
3. Have your child dip the marshmallow in melted butter.
This represents the oils of embalming.
4. Then dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar.
This represents the spices used to anoint the body of Jesus.
5. Wrap the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll

(not like a typical crescent roll up, instead bring the sides up and seal the marshmallow inside)
This represents the wrapping of Jesus' body after death.
6. Place in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
The oven represents the tomb (pretend like it was 3 days and nights.)
7. When the rolls have cooled slightly, your child can open their rolls (cloths) and discover that Jesus is no longer there. HE IS RISEN!

The marshmallow melts and the cresent roll is puffed up. But like the tomb - IT IS EMPTY! 

These are delicious, sugary, and very symbolic. 

Have a wonderful Easter weekend with your family!
