Resurrection Rolls // A Recipe

I don't know where I originally found this, but it's always a hit with our kids year after year. The rolls can go on a cookie sheet or muffin tin and take just 10 minutes to bake. Definitely one of our favorite Easter traditions. (Works great as an easy, but meaningful Easter breakfast too!)


- 1 can crescent roll dough
- 8 large marshmallows
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp. sugar


Read John 19 while the oven is pre-heating according to the package directions. Unroll the crescent rolls. Explain that this is like the cloth they wrapped Jesus in. Give your child a marshmallow and explain that it represents Jesus - all white and pure because He was without sin. Roll the marshmallows in the melted butter. This symbolizes the embalming oils. Roll the marshmallow in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. This is like the spices used to prepare His body for burial. Wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll cloth, pinching the dough together securely. This represents how they would have wrapped Jesus' body. Put the rolls in the oven (symbolizing the tomb) and bake for the amount of time specified on the package. While the rolls are baking, read John 20:1-18. Open the tomb and remove the rolls. When they're cool enough to handle, break one open and discover what happened to the marshmallow. Jesus is risen! Read 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. Jesus is coming again!

Yield: 8 rolls
