Food Fashion and Flow: Resurrection Rolls

Resurrection Rolls

Easter is a sacred holiday in my family.  I have been thinking about the resurrection of Jesus Christ and how to explain that concept to my four year old son. This recipe immediately came to mind. These sweet rolls start with crescentt dough, marshmallows, butter and cinnamon sugar.  I hope I had you when I said butter....everything tastes better with butter! If you like cinnamon rolls,  or anything ooey, gooey, sitcky and chewey. YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!

Making these treats is a great way to have a spiritually meaningful conversation  with your children. These sweet treats are basically crescents wrapped around a cinnamon sugar marshmallow that hollows when you bake it. During the baking process the marshmallow melts into the dough and dissappears.  This process  is a great way to help a child see the resurrection in a visual way that helps them connect the dots The finished product is a sweet roll oozing with sweet cinnamon goodness.  Even if you don''t have children, this is just a fun and easy recipe.

Here are step by step instructions:

Resurrection Rolls

1 10 ounce can refrigerated crescent dough
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons white sugar


Preheat oven to 350

combine cinnamon and sugar and put aside

*Seperate crresecent dough into triangles. The crescent represents the tomb.
*Take one large marshmallow, which represents the body of Christ
*Dip the marshmallow in melted butter and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. This represent the oils
and spices the body was annonited with upon burial
* Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap the dough around the marshmallow (make sure the
seams are pinched together, or the marshmallow will ooze out of the seams
*Bake for approxximately 10-15 minutes (oven times vary depending on how hot your oven gets)
Remove from oven
Cool slightly

Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!

Celebrate God's Love!
