Resurrection Rolls

I wanted to write a quick post for you who are looking for a great Easter recipe to do with the kiddos.  I found this recipe last year and plan on making these a part of our Easter tradition.  As we make them, we talk about the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!DSC02742

Ingredients needed:
Crescent rolls
Melted butter
Large Marshmallows
Cinnamon
Sugar

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.  Give each child one triangle of crescent rolls.  Explain that the crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
Read Matthew 27: 57-61.DSC02730
Give each child a marshmallow.  This represents Jesus.  Have him/her dip the marshmallow in melted butter.  This represents the oils of embalming.  Then dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar.  This represents the spices used to anoint the body.  Then wrap up the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll (not like a typical crescent roll up, but bring the sides up and seal the marshmallow inside.)  This represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after death.

Place all in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove rolls from oven and let them cool slightly.

Now the kiddos can then open their rolls (cloths) and discover that Jesus is no longer there! HE IS RISEN!!!! (The marshmallow melts and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.)  ~ Now read Matthew 28:1-10DSC02741
Enjoy your warm rolls as you rejoice at the good news of Easter!

Devil eggs

Just let me say this, these deviled eggs are AWESOME! Easy, tasty, – and almost everyone in my family  loves them.  These are a great way to get put your Easter ‘love’ in the food or any addition to a yummy meal.   Needless to say, these are frugal to make.

Using a small spoon put the yolk mixture back into each egg, enough to fill yolk holes completely.
