Resurrection Rolls

Here’s a great recipe to teach your children the true meaning of Easter, It gives them more of a visual when they see the empty tomb. They’re also really yummy too!

The point of Easter has become so saturated with the Easter bunny, Easter baskets and so on. I’m one of those that still participates in the fun of it but make sure the kids know the true meaning of “Jesus has Risen”.

In this recipe, the marshmallow represents the body of Jesus. You dip the marshmallow in butter and then roll it in cinnamon and sugar which represents Jesus’ body being preserved. You then wrap the marshmallow in a crescent roll which represents the tomb where Jesus’ body laid. Once the rolls are done cooking you open them up and they are empty which represents that Jesus has risen! The kids love doing this and it’s such a great message!

The tomb is empty! He is risen. He is Risen Indeed. (Matthew 28:1-8)

Resurrection Rolls Recipe

I had a few of mine explode because they weren’t wrapped tightly. If you’re concerned about them exploding, you can wrap each marshmallow in two crescent rolls to ensure they are completely wrapped.

I love the Resurrection Rolls, too. And I feel that Easter (and Christmas) is far to commercialized.

It's a great idea. I was trying to explain this to my daughter the other week.

We have been using the Resurrection Eggs for the past 2-3 weeks; but my kids would LOVE an edible object lesson like this. I had heard of these rolls but didn't realize they were so simple. Thanks for sharing!
