Resurrection Rolls

I thought in honor of Palm Sunday, I would remind you guys about these clever little Resurrection Rolls.  
They’ve been around forever and are all over Pinterest, so I’m sure you’ve seen them before, but they’re just so simple, so delicious and such a great way to share Easter with your kiddos that I wanted to include them too.  Ashby’s class is even making them at school this week…they’re good for all ages.
Today, I did step by step instructions and then the complete recipe is at the bottom.
Enjoy your Palm Sunday friends.
All you need right here: Crescent Rolls, marshmallows, melted butter and a cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Unroll each of your crescent rolls into triangles (representing the wrappings Christ was wrapped in after he was crucified).  
 Next, take each marshmallow (representing Christ) and first dip it in the melted butter (representing the oils they anointed Christ with) .

Then dip it in your spice mixture (representing the spices they used on Christ’s body after he died).

Place each marshmallow in the center of a crescent roll…
…and roll it up tightly completely covering the marshmallow (this is your “tomb”).
The “tomb” right out of the oven.

And the tomb is now empty…because He is Risen :).

This makes 8 rolls. 
Shopping List
1 can of crescent rolls
about 3 tablespoons of sugar 
1/2 a tablespoon of cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
2 tablespoons of melted butter
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) and lightly spray with non-stick spray.  Set aside.  Combine your sugar and cinnamon in a little bowl, set aside.
Unroll each of your crescent rolls into triangles (representing the wrappings Christ was wrapped in after he was crucified).  Next, take each marshmallow (representing Christ) and first dip it in the melted butter (representing the oils they anointed Christ with) and then dip it in your spice mixture (representing the spices they used on Christ’s body after he died).  Place each marshmallow in the center of a crescent roll and roll it up tightly completely covering the marshmallow (representing the tomb).
Place your baking sheet in the oven and bake about 10 to 12 minutes or until the outsides of your rolls are lightly browned.
Remove from oven.  When you go to serve these and they are sliced open, you will notice that your marshmallow is gone…just like Christ was three days later.
How simple and precious is this little recipe?  
Happy (almost) Easter.
