Resurrection Rolls

Easter Snack – Empty Tomb Rolls or “Resurrection Rolls”


Here’s a great idea to do with the kids to help them understand the reason for Easter.  I do this with my preschoolers every year and Bug and I did this this week too.

Here’s what you need:

Canned biscuits
Large Marshmallows
Spray margarine (or just melt some margarine and brush it on with a pastry brush)

Flatten each biscuit as much as you can.  Place marshmallows in the center and bring the edges of the biscuit over the marshmallows and pinch shut at the top.  Roll the biscuit around to form a ball (like you would do to make a ball of playdough)

Place the rolls pinched side down (very important!) on a cookie sheet (I spread wax paper or aluminum foil over my cookie sheet to make clean up a breeze!)  Spray with margarine and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake on 350 for 12-15 minutes.

Let cool.

When you bite into the roll the marshmallow is gone and the “tomb” is empty.  Just like Jesus is no longer in the tomb.  Hallelujah!

We read this book – The Easter Story – while the rolls are cooking.  It’s very kid friendly but very detailed and accurate.

It doesn’t have to be Easter to make them! It’s a great object lesson anytime! I say make them this weekend. The Easter message doesn’t stop when Easter Sunday is over. :)
