Resurrection Rolls

Resurrection rolls are made by wrapping a marshmallow in dough, which is then baked. As they bake, the marshmallow melts, leaving an empty space inside the roll, symbolizing the empty tomb after Jesus' resurrection.

Look at all of that sweet ooey gooey goodness!

The Symbolism: A Story of Faith and Transformation

In a kitchen filled with the warm scent of cinnamon and sugar, children gather to embark on a timeless Easter tradition – the making of Resurrection Rolls. As they prepare the ingredients, each step mirrors the solemn rituals of Jesus' burial: dipping the marshmallow in butter, coating it in spices, and wrapping it tenderly in crescent roll dough.

As the rolls bake, anticipation fills the air. Then, as if by miracle, they emerge from the oven transformed. The marshmallow, once hidden within, has disappeared, leaving behind only sweetness and light. It's a powerful reminder of the miraculous resurrection of Jesus, stirring hope in the hearts of us all.

Resurrection Roll


  • 1 can of crescent rolls

  • 3 Tbsp of Butter

  • 3 Tbsp Sugar + 1 Tbsp Cinnamon

  • 8 Large Marshmallows


  1. Melt some butter in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar together. Then, separate your crescent rolls and set them aside.

  2. Next, dip a marshmallow into the melted butter, making sure it's covered all around, and then roll it in the cinnamon sugar mix until it's coated entirely.

  3. After that, wrap the marshmallow in one of the crescent rolls, being careful to seal all the cracks and make sure the marshmallow is completely covered. Repeat this process until all the marshmallows have been used.

  4. Finally, place the wrapped marshmallows on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake according to the crescent roll package instructions, or until they are golden brown. Enjoy your tasty treats!
