Resurrection rolls and other recipes

You might soon want to make sure you have the necessary ingredients for the following:

Resurrection Rolls

1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 large marshmallows
Melted butter

Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb.
Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ.
Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial.
Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow.
Make sure all seams are pinched together well. (Otherwise the marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams)
Bake according to package directions.

Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!!
Celebrate God's love!

Ruth -- This looks like a terrific--and easy--recipe! I'd seen the resurrection cookies recipe before, but never made it because it seemed too labor-intensive, and with four kids, the last thing I need to be doing is making labor-intensive cookies.

But I think I will add resurrection rolls to my Easter menu!

The marshmallow "melts" into the roll itself, just leaving the hole - ;-)
