Resurrection Rolls

March 24, 2008

The kids and I made Resurrection Rolls on Saturday night while Andrew was at work.  Here’s the recipe (see below for the reaction.)

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 pkg. Crescent rolls                                           
Melted butter                                                     
Large marshmallows

Give each child a triangle of crescent rolls. 
The crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.

Give each child a marshmallow.
This represents Jesus and His purity.

Have the child dip the marshmallow in melted butter.
This represents the oils of embalming.

Then dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar.
This represents the spices used to anoint the body.

Then wrap up the coated marshmallow TIGHTLY in the crescent roll (not like a typical crescent roll-upý.but bring the sides up & seal the marshmallow inside)
This represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after death.

Place in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 mins.
The oven represents the tomb. Pretend like it was three days!

When the rolls have cooled slightly, the children can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that Jesus is no longer there, HE IS RISEN!The marshmallow melts and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.

It was very fun to do these with my very LITERAL children.  After asking a few hundred times WHY they would have wrapped Jesus in cinnamon and sugar (they didn’t mind the dipping in butter though!) we finally got them into the oven.  Erin was slightly shocked when she opened one of hers and screamed…
