I have wanted to do these resurrection rolls ever since I saw them. I’ve seen a number of people do them since, and I’ve continued to love the idea of this visual demonstration of the empty tomb that was found Easter morning. I got some of the recipe from The Sister’s Cafe. The other portion of the recipe is my own bread machine roll recipe that has been my favorite over the years…and I know something about rolls. My cousin and I used to have roll eating competitions at Thanksgiving, so I know rolls. It was so fun to wrap the marshmallows up in the roll dough, saying we are showing how Jesus was put away in a tomb. Yes, Jesus is a marshmallow in this analogy. It was so fun they where done baking to be able to open up the roll, peek inside and find no more marshmallow. The kids loved it. Here’s the recipe:
Your own rolls – can be the ones above (amazingly yummy) or even store bought refrigerator rolls.
1 tsp cinnamon
1 bag large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted
