Resurrection rolls

I found this recipe last week and tried it out on my family. They all have their seal of approval. In fact, I’ve been asked to teach a lesson on it on Easter Sunday.

The crescent rolls represent the robes Jesus was wrapped in & the tomb he was put into after he died on the cross.

The melted butter represents the oils put on Jesus before he was put in the tomb.

The marshmallow represents Jesus.

The sugar represents the sweetness of God in your life.

The cinnamon represents the bitterness in life. You need both sweetness and bitterness.


Resurrection Rolls

Stars of the recipe:

  • 1 package of crescent rolls (I used butter flavor.)
  • 2 Tbsp. of melted butter
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 1/4 c. Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon


  1. Unroll the crescent rolls.
  2. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Dip the marshmallow in the melted butter, coating all sides.
  4. Dip the butter-coated marshmallow in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Wrap the marshmallow in a crescent roll. Seal the ends.
  6. Repeat with the rest of the crescent rolls.
  7. Place in a muffin tin sprayed with cooking spray.
  8. Bake at 375 for 14 minutes.

While they bake, the marshmallow melts, leaving the inside hollow like when Jesus rose from the dead. The tomb was empty.

Have a blessed Easter.
