Resurrection Rolls, Crescent Rolls

We have a number of family traditions for holidays, and one of the favorites by our kids over the years have been our Crescent Rolls "Resurrection Rolls". They're a sweet treat, which also tell the Easter story of Christ's death and resurrection. Enjoy!

RESURRECTION ROLLS


  • 1 tube Crescent rolls
  • melted butter
  • large marshmallows
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Mix together cinnamon and sugar mixture, set aside.

Read Matthew 27:57-61

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Unwrap cresent rolls. The cresent rolls represent the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
  3. The marshmallows represent Jesus.
  4. Dip the marshmallow in the melted butter. This represents the oils of embalming.
  5. Dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar mixture, which represent the oils of embalming.
  6. Wrap up the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll (not like a typical cresent roll up, but bring the sides up and seal the marshmallow inside). This represents the wrapping of Jesus' body after his death.
  7. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. The oven represents the tomb.
  8. Let the rolls cool slightly. When the rolls are opened you discover that they are empty, representing Jesus no longer in the tomb, but He has risen.

Read Matthew 28:5-8

This is a wonderful, simple way to portray the Easter story to children, and they love eating them. Now that our children are all grown, this is still a family favority that we do every year, and now are passing down to our Grandchildren.

Have a blessed Easter and remember to celebrate the real meaning of Easter, the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
