Now, I didn't come up with this "recipe" and, in fact, I didn't know they were called Easter rolls or Resurrection rolls until someone else told me. See, my husband's grandma makes them for brunch all the time and they are a delicious, easy treat.
My daughter isn't old enough to help out yet, although she sure tried, but these would be great to make with older kids. As you put them together it's an easy way to share the true story of Easter!
There's only 4 ingredients and they take less than 20 minutes.
1. cinnamon and sugar
2. melted butter
3. jumbo marshmallows
4. crescent rolls
To assemble the rolls, dip the marshmallow in butter, roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture and wrap it in a crescent roll.
As you make them, you can explain what happened after the cross with the illustration of the marshmallow being Christ's body, how he was anointed with oils (butter and cinnamon) and placed in a tomb (roll).
Then place each assembled roll in a muffin tin and bake according to the instructions on the crescent roll tube.
When you open the "tomb" the body of Christ is gone!
