Easter Resurrection Rolls Recipe

Resurrection Rolls - Empty Tomb Rolls

Easter Resurrection Rolls are also known as empty tomb rolls or disappearing marshmallow rolls. Resurrection rolls have become a fun way to involve kids in a kitchen activity with a teaching lesson about the burial and resurrection of Jesus at Easter. A great way to spend time with family in addition to decorating those Easter eggs.

Even if you don’t have children at home to bake with, these Easter rolls are delicious. They taste like cinnamon rolls and are great for breakfast before those Easter sunrise services.

The Easter Resurrection Rolls story and symbolism became popular from a clever Sunday School teacher using these rolls as a demonstration for the kids in her class.

The symbolism of Easter Resurrection Rolls in the teaching lesson are:

Marshmallow – the body of Jesus

Melted Butter – the oils for embalming Cinnamon/Sugar mixture – spices used to anoint the body

Roll- the wrapping of Jesus’ body

Oven – the tomb Cavity in roll – the empty tomb after Jesus has risen

Easter Resurrection Rolls Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Stick of Butter, melted
  • 1 package of Big Crescent Rolls (8 count)
  • 8 Large Marshmallows
  • 2 tbs Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 tbs Ground Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F

Step 1: Melt four tablespoons or half a stick of butter.

Step 2: Combine the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl.

Step 3: Stretch out each crescent roll triangle without tearing the dough. Take on marshmallow and roll in the melted butter. Coat each buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place the coated marshmallow into the crescent and cover being sure to securely pinch all of the sides together. Place seams side down on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Brush the tops of each roll with melted butter and sprinkle on some of the cinnamon sugar mixture if desired. Bake 12-15 minutes.

No matter how carefully you pinch the sides of the dough together, there is always that one escape artist that will erupt into a marshmallow volcano.  No worries, it will still taste great. 

He is not here; He has risen – Matthew 28:6


Options when serving Resurrection Rolls
