Resurrection Rolls

These have become an Easter breakfast tradition for us. I found the recipe on Allrecipes two years ago and thought they were amazing....last year I was too sick with pregnancy to make them, but this year I made them again. Goodness, they are so delicious!

The marshmallow melts inside the roll creating a juicy sauce. It's like an inside out cinnamon roll.
They're really so good that I would love to have them often, but I want them to be special on Resurrection Sunday, so I'll try to have self-control and save them for once a year.

They are easy to make with kids and they invite the opportunity to explain about the Resurrection because the disappearing marshmallow is supposed to represent Jesus being risen.

Here's a breakdown of the symbolism:

Large Marshmallows - body of Jesus
Melted Butter - oils of embalming
Cinnamon & Sugar Mix- spices used to anoint the body.
Crescent Roll - the wrapping of Jesus’ body or the tomb.
Oven – the tomb
Cavity in bun – the empty tomb or the empty cloths

Recipe: (makes 8 - I doubled for our family so we each could have at least 2!)

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

Preheat oven to 375°.
Separate rolls into eight triangles. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each marshmallow into butter, roll in cinnamon-sugar and place on a triangle. Pinch dough around marshmallow, sealing all edges. Make sure to seal well or all the marshmallow will escape. For Real.

Dip tops of dough into remaining butter and cinnamon-sugar. Place with sugar side up in greased muffin cups. It helps to use jumbo muffin tins so that the juice doesn't overflow.

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Eat warm.

Rolling up the marshmallow

If the cinnamon/sugar mixture starts getting clumpy from the butter, you may find it easier to just sprinkle it on the marshmallows.
