We made “Resurrection Rolls” from a recipe at DLTK. I loved that even my three year old picked up on the idea of the empty tomb!
1) Mix 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon with 1/4 cup of sugar in a small bowl. Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in another small bowl.
2) Using a package of store-bought crescent rolls, lay out one triangle. This is the “tomb”. Roll the marshmallow (representing Jesus) in the butter and then in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. This represents the oil and spices used to preserve the body.
3. Roll up the marshmallow in the dough (Jesus’ body in the tomb). Make sure to pinch the sides and corners as well as you can (we had some leaky marshmallows!). Roll the outside of the dough in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Each container should make eight rolls.
4) Follow package directions for baking. After they have cooled, enjoy!! The “tomb” will be empty!!
