Resurrection Rolls

In honor of Easter, I'm going to share a family tradition we have at our house. 

I found this recipe online years ago. I don't remember the source and I did a search and got over 2 million results. So I am not claiming this to be my recipe. It's one of those that has been around awhile.  

We started doing this when my son {whose now 7} was a baby. 
We make Resurrection Rolls each year around Easter. 

This year I found some scriptures to go along with it.

Resurrection Rolls
crescent rolls - represent the cloth that Jesus body was wrapped in {Matt 27:59}
large marshmallow - represents Jesus and His purity
melted butter - represents the oils of embalming {Luke 23:56}
cinnamon & sugar - represents the spices used to anoint the body of Jesus {Luke 23:56}
oven - represents the tomb {Matt 27:60}

Preheat oven to 350. Dip the marshmallow in butter and then the cinnamon sugar. Wrap the crescent roll around the marshmallow and pinch edges. Bake for 10-12 minutes {This is the 3 days and nights} Open the "cloths" and find that Jesus is no longer there. HE IS RISEN! {Matt 28:6}

My kids look forward to this every year. They are actually pretty tasty too. 

Make sure to use fresh marshmallows. The ones I used this year I'd had for a while. They didn't all melt very well. 


  1. This is great. I found a recipe on Pinterest for Resurrection Cookies, but this recipe seems like it might be a little easier for my kids since they are so young. I'm going to use this recipe!!

    Thanks for sharing!!
