Resurrection Rolls

I make these with my kids every Easter morning. You get breakfast and great lesson!

Resurrection Rolls
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 large marshmallows
Melted butter

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 will "ooze" out of the seams)
Bake according to package directions.

Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!!
Celebrate God's love!

I saw these somewhere else this week! We're definitely going to have to try them. If I can keep everyone from eating all the marshmallows before we stick them in the dough, that is!

Thank you. I couldn't remember for anything. Love you. Wish we could be doing these together.
