Resurrection Rolls Recipe
Easter is just around the corner and as a Christian family it has always been a time of reflection of all that has been done for us. This Resurrection Rolls Recipe is the perfect way to share the story of the cross with your family.
It is a fun and simple way to share the message of Resurrection Sunday with even the little members of your family!
As parents we need to share our faith with our children at all ages, and in ways that they can understand and relate to. This recipe is a great way to do just that, and they get to enjoy a yummy treat at the end of the lesson.
- 1 package Cresent rolls
- melted butter
- large marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degree
Give each child a triangle from the cresent rolls
The cresent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in
Give each child a marshmallow.
This represents Jesus and His purity.
Have child dip the marshmallow in melted butter.
This represents the oils of embalming.
Dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar.
This represents the spices used to annoint the body of Jesus.
Wrap the coated marshmallow tightly in the cresent roll
(not like a typical cresent roll up, but bring the sides up and seal the marshmallow inside, otherwise the marshmallow will leak out.)
This represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after death.
Place in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
The oven represents the tomb
When the rolls have cooled slightly, the children can open their rolls (cloths) and discover that Jesus is no longer there,
HE IS RISEN!
The marshmallow melts and the cresent roll is puffed up,
but like the tomb – IT IS EMPTY!
I found another recipe that is completely home made and doesn’t use refrigerated cresent rolls. This may work better for those of you who already have the simple ingredients on hand. You can find the recipe here.
I think this is a great tradition to add to your Easter time celebrations that takes the focus off the eggs and chocolate bunnies for a while and puts it right where it belongs.
