Few More Easter-y Things

Easter Morning we made Resurrection Rolls. Resurrection Rolls are basically crescent rolls wrapped around a marshmallow that hollow as you bake them. I wanted something to make sure they knew WHY we celebrated Easter. It's so not just about a giant bunny who leaves you stuff. I explained the story of Easter by taking a marshmallow (the sinless Jesus), coating it in butter (anointing him in oils), rolling the butter-coated marshmallow in cinnamon-sugar (further anointing him with incense, wrapping the marshmallow in a crescent roll (wrapping Jesus in his shroud, and then placing the rolls in the oven (Jesus' tomb) to bake (for 3 days). When the 8 minutes was past, I took out the gooey rolls. They were now hollowed out! Hunter was amazed! Yes, the filled roll became empty just as Jesus' tomb became on Easter morning.

Here's the recipe for y'all.

Resurrection Rolls

1 can of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and grease lightly (i used aluminum foil and sprayed with Baker's Joy). Separate crescent rolls and flatten out a bit. In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together. Dip marshmallow into melted butter, than roll into sugar mixture. Place marshmallow in center of crescent dough triangle and wrap carefully, pinching at seams to seal tightly. Place on baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool, break open and enjoy. Even when they "gush out" they are still tasty. We'll be making them all year long they are so good. Like a not-so-sweet breakfast roll. Perfect for brunch play dates *wink*wink*


You can see it's empty inside!


Look how beautiful Peeps can be!!!


Family is what the holidays are all about!
