resurrection rolls

I heard the neatest thing on the Christian radio station this morning and thought I would share it. They are called Resurrection Rolls and you’re supposed to make them with your kids to tell them the Easter story. Here’s a picture and recipe:


12 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, thawed but still cold
12 jumbo marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon


In a small bowl combine cinnamon and sugar. Roll out each roll into a 5 inch circle. Dip a marshmallow in butter and then in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place one marshmallow in the center of each 5 inch circle. Fold each side of the circle over the marshmallow, and pinch together to close. Place on a sprayed baking sheet, with the seam facing down. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap, and allow to double in size. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Notes: *For those of you who are interested in the symbolism of Resurrection Rolls…

Marshmallow – the body of Jesus
Melted Butter – the oils for embalming
Cinnamon/Sugar mixture – spices used to anoint the body
Roll- the wrapping of Jesus’ body
Oven – the tomb
Cavity in roll – the empty tomb after Jesus has risen

Here’s another version using crescent rolls:
