Resurrection Rolls

This fun and educational recipe came from my MOPS group.  These rolls are so easy and quick to make, perfect for young kids to help with!

Start with your ingredients...a can of crescent rolls, marshmallows, melted butter, cinnamon & sugar, that's it!

After dipping them in melted butter, roll the marshmallows in some cinnamon and sugar...

Place one marshmallow on one triangle of crescent dough...

Roll them up...

Make sure all the seams are pinched together well...isn't Matthew such a big boy helper??


Let cool for just a bit...

Break open the tomb, and the body of Christ is no longer there!

Resurrection Rolls

1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
8 large marshmallows
Melted butter (about 2 Tbs.)
Cinnamon & sugar mixture

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 with "ooze" out of the seams.)  Bake according to package directions and cool.  Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!!

Enjoy and Happy Easter!
