Resurrection Rolls - a simple Easter lesson and treat

I'm making these tonight with my Activity Girls (8-11 year olds) at church.  We made them in homeschool today so I could time how long it takes.  Everyone 6-17 years enjoyed making (and eating) them. 
 The butter represents the oils of embalming.  
The cinnamon and sugar represent the spices used to anoint the body. 
 All wrapped up in the crescent roll dough and ready to go in the oven (the tomb).
 Tater felt the need to roll his after pinching the dough closed.  Maybe that's why his didn't split open.
 Some were not sealed well and the marshmallow leaked out.  
This is our first pan.  We did two pans.
 This one was perfectly sealed!
 The tomb is empty!
Another perfect one!

  • 1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls (8 count)
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1- 1 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • paper cupcake liners

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
  3. Separate crescent rolls into triangles and give each person one. The crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in after he died.
  4. Give each person a large marshmallow. The marshmallow represents Jesus’ body. 
  5. Have each person dip their marshmallow into the melted butter. The melted butter represents the oils of embalming. 
  6. Then dip the buttered the marshmallow into the cinnamon sugar. The cinnamon sugar represents the spices used to anoint the body. 
  7. Wrap the coated marshmallow tightly into the crescent roll. Pinch the sides to make a good seal.  Don’t roll up like a regular crescent rollThis represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after death.
  8. When they're done forming their roll, place inside a paper cupcake liner and on a jelly roll pan (a baking sheet with edges).  
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes.  The oven represents the tomb Jesus was buried in. 
  10. When the rolls have cooled slightly, everyone can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that Jesus is no longer there, for HE IS RISEN!
