I made one of my favorite Easter treats today with the boys.
Yes, I realize it’s snowing somewhere, but I’m ready for spring!
Have you ever made resurrection rolls with your kids?
These cinnamon and sugary treats are such a sweet way to share the story of Christ’s resurrection! They’re easy enough for little ones to make and yummy enough to satisfy your hungriest teenagers.
It’s a win for everyone!
I love simple (and yummy) ways to turn our hearts and minds toward Jesus in the day-to-day madness. Today around 11:00 am everyone was hungry, and I had the ingredients.
My youngest: Mom, it’s not Easter yet!
Me: It’s close enough! Plus I’ll take pics and share on the blog so others have time to go buy the ingredients and do it with their kids.
Funny that this response makes perfect sense to my son.
I’m telling ya. I’m just always thinking about ya’ll!
What you need:
refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 stick melted butter
Matthew 27, 28
Mark 15, 16
Luke 23, 24
Pull apart the crescent rolls along perforations.
The rolls represent the linen cloth that Jesus was wrapped in after his crucifixion.
The marshmallows represent Christ’s body.
First, roll the marshmallows in melted butter.
The melted butter represents the oil that would have been used when embalming Christ’s body.
Next, roll the wet marshmallows in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
This represents the spices that would have been used to prepare Jesus’ body for burial.
Place the “seasoned” marshmallow at the wide end of your dough and “tuck and roll” the marshmallow so that the dough covers the marshmallow completely. You might have to pinch the sides or corners just a bit.
Bake according to package directions. I like to line my baking sheets with parchment paper. That keeps ooey-gooey marshmallow from sticking to your baking sheet.
Now take your rolls out and let them cool for a few minutes.
Finally, cut in half and discover that your roll is empty!
Jesus has risen!

Read my post about these eggs from last year. I just love them.
Easter for Mom:
One of my all time favorite Christmas Bible studies is Preparing My Heart for Advent by Ann Marie Stewart, and I’ve been wanting to do her Easter study now for awhile, and I finally remembered to order it in time this year.
I just picked it up this week and it looks awesome! It’s an 8 week study designed to do in the weeks leading up to Easter. I know when I did her Christmas study a few years ago it changed the way I view the Advent season forever.
Want to join along with me in this study? I’m looking forward to a fresh perspective on Easter this year and I’d love to chat about the book with you! If enough are interested maybe we can set up a FB group?
