Resurrection Rolls

Easter is coming up! This recipe is an annual tradition in our home.

1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
8 large marshmallows
Melted butter
Cinnamon and Sugar mixed together

Give each child one rectangle section of dough. This will represent the cloth wrapped around Jesus' body. Give each child one large marshmallow. This represents Christ's body. Let each child roll their marshmallow in the melted butter. Then, dip the marshmallow into the cinnamon sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices that prepared Christ's body for burial. Have each child place the marshmallow on their section of dough and carefully wrap it. Make sure all edges are pinched tight! Place the rolls in the oven. Tape the door shut and place a guard - stuffed animal or child. The oven represents the tomb. Bake the rolls, following the directions on the package. Open the tomb/oven. Only the cloths remain! Christ's body is no longer there! Read accompanying passages from Scripture, such as John 19: 38-42 and John 20.

We made these again this year. It's been a tradition for us since 2008. The kids really look forward to these rolls and the symbolism behind it. Its a great way to teach your little ones about the resurrection.
