Friends, Easter is only 12 days away!
Every year prior to Easter, I like to remind you guys how to make Resurrection Rolls for your kids or grandkids. It’s such a simple (and delicious!) way to share with them the story of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Last year, I even shared a video so that you can see step by step how they’re made.
If you have any young kiddos in your life, I cannot recommend this idea more! I hope it helps some of you explain the true meaning of Easter to your family.
Here’s the video…
Easy as that!
And here’s the recipe for you to follow as you make your batch this year…Print
Resurrection Rolls: HOW TO VIDEO!
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 12 minutes
- Total Time: 17 minutes
- Yield: 8 rolls
An easy and delicious way for you to explain the death and resurrection to your kiddos each Easter season!
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.
Happy almost Easter!!
I’ve been making these for my kids since they were little, and now that they range in age from 22 to 30, they still ask for them and make them for their kids. They used to ask for them to share with the teen friends. That’s a winning recipe!
Have you found any gluten free options for making these?

Not that work well. I’ve tried several options, but I’m still on the hunt. When will Pillsbury make a GF crescent roll?!
