I just have to mention that these are super easy, inexpensive and really delicious! We all had a lot of fun!
Ingredients for 8 Resurrection rolls:
- 1 package Crescent rolls
- 2 tbs. melted butter
- 8 large marshmallows
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 3 tbs. sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Give each child a triangle from the Crescent rolls.
The Crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
Give each child a marshmallow.
This represents Jesus and His purity.
Have child dip the marshmallow in melted butter.
This represents the oils of embalming.
Dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar.
This represents the spices used to anoint the body of Jesus.
Wrap the coated marshmallow tightly in the Crescent roll
(not like a typical Crescent roll up, but bring the sides up and seal the marshmallow inside, otherwise the marshmallow will leak out.)
This represents the wrapping of Jesus' body after death.
Place in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
The oven represents the tomb
When the rolls have cooled slightly, the children can open their rolls (cloths) and discover that Jesus is no longer there,
HE IS RISEN!
The marshmallow melts and the Crescent roll is puffed up,
but like the tomb - IT IS EMPTY!
