Resurrection Crescents

While you are making your shopping list, make sure to include the ingredients for some yummy Resurrection Crescents! They are super simple and delicious, and it is easy to have the kids involved in making them while talking about the Easter story. Keep in mind that these disappear quickly, so you may want to double (or triple!) the recipe. :-) Many stores have the ingredients for these on sale this week (both Kroger and Roundy's do!).

Resurrection Crescents
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

Separate rolls into eight triangles. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each marshmallow (Jesus' body) into butter, roll in cinnamon-sugar and place on a triangle (explain that Jesus' friends put spices on His body and wrapped it in cloths). Pinch dough around marshmallow, sealing all edges. Dip tops of dough into remaining butter and cinnamon-sugar. Place with sugar side up on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven (tomb) at 375 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes. Serve warm. During the baking, the marshmallows melt and when you open the roll, it is empty inside! He is not here! He is risen!

*Some recipes say to put these in muffin tins. They get very sticky and messy, and I've found that cleaning off a flat cookie sheet or baking pan is a lot easier than cleaning muffin tins.

Thanks for idea. We made them tonight. It was a lot of fun. We read from the book of John to have Scripture while we were doing it. It worked out well because that section of Scripture has Joseph taking the body and wrapping it with spices. The rolls were good too. My 4 year old daughter figured it out 3 minutes later. "I know what happened to Jesus, He melted!:)"

I think I forgot to say this: We laid down parchment paper (there was a coupon this week:), it provided a quick clean up!
