The Lesson (I talk about each thing with the kids as we make the rolls):
The marshmallow represents Jesus.
The butter/cinnamon sugar represents the oils and spices that were used to anoint the body of Jesus.
The crescent rolls represent the cloth that Jesus’ body was wrapped in after death.
The oven represents the tomb.
Once the rolls are baked they become hollow, representing that the tomb is empty and Jesus has risen!
- 1 pkg. refrigerator crescent Rolls
- Large Marshmallow
- Melted Butter
- Sugar Cinnamon Mix (About 4 parts sugar to 1 part cinnamon)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a muffin tin with cupcake wrappers.
Separate crescent rolls.
Roll a marshmallow in the melted butter, then into the cinnamon-sugar mix.
Wrap it tightly inside a triangle of the crescent dough, making sure any openings are entirely sealed around the marshmallow.
Dip the top of the roll into the butter, then in the cinnamon and sugar mix, then place in a paper-lined muffin tin with sugar/cinnamon on top.
Repeat until all crescents are used.
Bake in preheated oven for 16-18 minutes, or until the tops of the buns are golden brown.
