Resurrection Rolls

It's not too late to plan another activity before (or on) Easter!
We made these this morning and it was great for emphasis on Resurrection Sunday.

All you need: Crescent rolls, cinnamon, sugar, butter, and large marshmallows. 

Melt the butter in a dish (about 1/4 cup of butter), put 1-2 Tablespoons of cinnamon and sugar in another bowl. I used Immaculate Crescent rolls. but I hear Pillsbury leaks less. These worked just fine and I like that they have less junk in them. And marshmallows. Yum.

Roll a marshmallow in the butter. This represents Jesus (sinless) and that his body was rubbed in oils after crucifixion.

Then roll in cinnamon sugar. This is for the spices also put on his body to prepare for burial.

Unroll the triangles. Roll the marshmallow starting at the skinny point towards the large bottom.

After rolling, make sure you pinch all the seams and creases the best you can. Please understand that no matter how much you pinch, some WILL leak. They just will. It's fine.

Place on parchment and/or foil. Or if you're me, both. 

Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. I sprinkled extra cinnamon on top before baking.

And on the third day, the tomb was empty!

Happy Easter!
