For the last 4 years now we've made Resurrection Rolls. The kiddos don't let me forget! Even the big kids! They're fun to make, have a wonderful message tied in to the creation of the rolls, and they are yummy to boot!
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup melted butter
sugar/cinnamon mixture (approx. 2 T each)
1 10 ounce can of crescent rolls
1. Open can of crescent rolls and separate into triangles.
The rolls represent the linen cloth used in covering the dead.
My little Abby when she wasn't even 2 yet...she's almost 5 now!
2. Dip and roll one marshmallow (representing the body) into melted butter.
The butter represents the oils used in anointing the dead body.
My little kitchen helpers!
3. In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar together. Roll the marshmallow in the mixture.
The mixture represents the spices used in burials.
They can really cook and bake in the kitchen now!
4. Place the marshmallow in the center of the crescent triangle and carefully fold the dough around the marshmallow. (Pinch the edges tightly to seal in the marshmallow as it melts.) Put each crescent-wrapped marshmallow on a slightly greased cookie sheet or in a greased cupcake pan.
5. Bake the rolls in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until they are golden brown.
The oven represents the tomb.
Let them cool. When the kids bite into them, they will see that the inside is empty!
Just like the tomb was empty that wonderful morning!!
They look so little! (The kids, I mean!)
HE IS RISEN INDEED! HALLELUJAH!
