Resurrection Rolls


These easy resurrection rolls take 5 minutes to prepare (plus 10 minutes to bake) and are a beautiful picture of Christ’s empty tomb. This is why it is a perfect treat for the week leading up to Easter. It is basically a crescent roll wrapped around a marshmallow. When you bake it, the marshmallow mostly disappears, creating what looks like an empty tomb.

These are the 4 ingredients you will need:

  • large marshmallows
  • a can of crescent roll dough
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon


Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the butter in a bowl and microwave until the butter melts. (This took me 25 seconds, but each microwave is different.) Stir the cinnamon into the melted butter.


Open the can of crescent rolls and pull apart each piece of dough. Unroll the dough on a cutting board, so that it is ready for the dipped marshmallows. Now dip the marshmallows into the melted butter. It’s almost like you’re baptizing the marshmallow, symbolizing that Christ had to die and be buried.


Place the marshmallow into the center of the dough and scrunch the dough around the marshmallow. Christ was buried for three days.


Now put the resurrection rolls into the oven for 10 minutes. When they come out, you will see that the marshmallows have disappeared, leaving an empty tomb.

  1. We made these last year… My advice – don’t use jumbo marshmallows! It tastes great, but is quite a mess to clean up 😉
