Resurrection Roll Breakfast!

Resurrection Rolls For Breakfast!?!

Why not?  I always use Resurrection Rolls for Sunday School.  Granted, my children do participate in my Sunday school class.  But, why not do them at home for breakfast? (especially if I’m not doing them in class this year)  I think this year we will make the rolls on Saturday night and talk about Jesus death.  And on Sunday morning  the tomb will be empty!  In addition, we will all get to church on time, because breakfast was made ahead of time.  I have both easy and homemade resurrection roll recipes.

Easy Resurrection Rolls: Serves 24 if each pack has 12 rolls

2 croissant roll refrigerator dough

4Tbsp melted butter

1cup sugar and 1Tbsp cinnamon

1pk. Large marshmallows

Divide the croissants and flatten.  Mix sugar and cinnamon together.  Wrap roll around a marshmallow, covering completely (no wholes). Dip into butter, and then into sugar mix. Place rolls in a large greased pan and allow to rise till double (about 35 minutes or over night in refrigerator).

Bake at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until done. Rolls should be completely empty when cooled…like the empty tomb.

-give each child one piece of roll dough—that represents the tomb

-give each child a marshmallow—that represents Jesus’ body

-roll each marshmallow in butter and then in sugar mix–represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial. (If you do this, it is really hard to get the tomb sealed.  If the tomb isn’t sealed the sugar will escape.)

-Rap the tomb around the body and seal it tightly—they rolled a stone over the tomb to secure it.

-Roll the tomb in butter, then in sugar mix, and let them rise.  Don’t wait for three days but to kids it could seem like that.  Jesus’ followers had to wait too.

-Bake at 375 for 15 min. when finished notice that the tomb is now empty.  Jesus is alive

    Good job with the story but I don’t really care what goes on at your school okay?

  1. […] Sherry over at SundaySchoolPages.com has a great hands-on lesson that not only illustrates the concept of the empty tomb, but is also great tasting! We’re going to be making these Resurrection Rolls. […]
