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

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

- 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!
