I made these rolls a few years ago for Easter and decided that I needed to make this a yearly tradition for our kids. Although my husband doesn't think that kids need "props" to help them understand the stories in the bible, my teacher training kicks in and I say "hey, if it is yet another way for them to understand what they are hearing about, I am all for it"!! I love the hands on technique, plus anything that gets us in the kitchen is a bonus for me!! I thought that I had blogged about this in the past, but when searching for the recipe came to realize that it was on my family blog instead of my foodie blog, so here I am - passing it along to you and helping me be able to find it next year when I am looking for the recipe again!! :)
(Recipe found on pinterest)
crescent rolls (to symbolize the tomb)
white marshmallows (to symbolize Jesus and his purity)
melted butter (to symbolize the oils used)
cinnamon and sugar mixture (to symbolize the incense used)
Set out the crescent rolls.
Roll the marshmallow in the melted butter.
Cover it with the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Lay the marshmallow on the crescent roll.
Roll the crescent roll up tightly, making sure to seal up all edges otherwise your marshmallow will ooze out everywhere. For that same reason, use a baking sheet with edges or you may have marshmallow all over the bottom of your oven like I did...
Bake for 12-15 minutes at 375 or until crescent rolls are browned. When opened, the marshmallow is "gone" and the "tomb" is empty...
