Ressurrection Rolls

In celebration of Easter, this year we made Ressurrection Rolls as a family on Saturday night before Easter morning. Not only was it a great teaching lesson, they are soooo yummy!

Ressurrections Rolls

1 can refrigerated cresent roll dough
8 large marshmallows
melted butter
cinnamon sugar

- Give each person one triangle shaped section of the cresent roll.

This represents the tomb

- Each person takes one marshmallow.

This represents the Body of Christ

-Dip the marshmallows in the butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

This represents the oils and spices the Body of Christ was annointed with upon burial.

-Lay the marshamallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow. Make sure all the seams are pinches together well. (This is very important, otherwise the marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams.)

-We put the rolls in the cold, dark oven

Which represents the tomb in which they placed the Body of Christ

-Bake according to package directions on Easter morning.

-When ready to eat, break open the tomb and the Body of Christ is no longer there!!!

We pray that each of you had a wonderful Resurrection Day!

Teddy Graham Dip

We celebrated the marriage to two very special people in our lives, Tyler and Danae. Tyler is serving in the US Army and we are so proud of him. We have know Danae for many years and it has been a joy to see the wonderful Christian young women, now wife, that she has become.

Before the wedding, we had a some fun at a lingerie shower for the Bride-to-be. On the menu for the shower was Teddy Graham Dip, get it, "Teddy" graham dip...

Anyway, oh my goodness, this is best dip ever!!! Thanks Ginger for sharing it!

Teddy Graham Dip
2 packages 8oz, soften cream cheese
2 cups powered sugar
2 sticks soften butter (don't skip the real stuff
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 small tub cool whip topping
1 bag mini chocolate chips

*please note - you can cut this down half, but I always make a big batch*

Mix soften cream cheese, powered sugar, soften butter, vanilla and cool whip well (I use my stand mixer.) Once mixed well, add mini chocolate chips and mix well. Refrigerate and serve with Teddy Graham cookies. I found generic cookies at the Dollar Store that we actually like better because the "double bears" and you can get more dip!

Our girls had the honor of being part of their beautiful wedding. It will be a day that they long forget.

Congratulations Tyler and Danae!
