Resurrection Rolls

We make these rolls every year around Easter.This is a great, hands on way, to teach your children about the true meaning of Easter.

This is what we talk about as we make these rolls:

The marshmallow represents Jesus' body. After Jesus' body was taken off the cross, Joseph anointed Jesus' body in oil and spices. Luke 19:39
 Take the marshmallow, roll it in 1/4 c. melted butter.
Roll it in a 1/2 c. sugar and 2 t. cinnamon mixture.
 After Jesus' body was prepared, they laid Him in a tomb and sealed it with a big rock. Mark 15:46

Take the marshmallow and place it on the wide end of a Pillsbury crescent roll. Roll up the marshmallow and seal the edges really well.  Place in a foil lined muffin pan. (Don't HAVE to have foil, just makes clean up much easier!) Bake @350 for 15 minutes.
While they are baking: Jesus told His disciples that He would die but that 3 days later, He would rise from the dead. Mark 9:31
 Once they come from the oven, drizzle some of this mixture over each roll: 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 2-3 T. milk and 1/2 t. vanilla.
The frosting represents the angel. When the women came to see Jesus' tomb, The stone was rolled away they saw 2 angels. Luke 24:4-8
As you break open the "tomb," the melted marshmallow that is left, represents the cloths that Jesus' body was wrapped in.
Jesus was not there! Only the linen cloths they wrapped His body and head in were left. John 20:6-7.

Praise the Lord!!! He is Risen!!! Mark 16:6
