Carol’s Easter Resurrection Story Rolls

Tyler’s been making this recipe with her kids for years! It’s quick and easy, and a perfect way to share the Easter story with your kids!

I got to make them with my nieces this year and had so much fun watching their little faces! When making them you can talk about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. Then he was buried in the tomb.

When you pull this recipe out of the oven, get your camera ready for their cute little surprised faces…as soon as the bite into a roll and they realize that the marshmallow is missing, they make the sweetest little faces! Then you get to share the rest of the story…when they went to the tomb to find Jesus, they didn’t find him! Just like the marshmallow in these rolls are missing, the tomb was empty! He is Risen…He is Risen indeed!

Matthew 28:5-7 NIV: The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

This is a great recipe to serve at breakfast or for a snack. I found it more fun than the annual tradition of dying Easter eggs! 🙂

Let’s get cooking together…
