Resurrection Rolls teach kids about Christ's resurrection and how the tomb was empty on Easter morning! 


  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (8 count)
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup melted butter, placed in a small bowl
  • 2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. white sugar
  • Easter cupcake liners, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. Combine cinnamon and sugar into a small bowl.
  2. For easy cleanup, place a disposable plastic table cloth on the counter or the table, wherever you'll be making the rolls.
  3. Separate crescent rolls into triangles and give each person one.
  4. Give each person a marshmallow.  
  5. Have each person dip their marshmallow into the melted butter.
  6. Then dip the buttered the marshmallow into the cinnamon sugar.
  7. Finally, wrap the coated marshmallow tightly into the crescent roll. Don't roll up like a traditional crescent roll, but bring up the sides to make a good, tight seal.
  8. Repeat with all rolls. Optional: for easy cleanup, place each roll inside a muffin paper.
  9. Place the rolls on a greased cooking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  10. When the rolls have cooled slightly, everyone can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that Jesus is no longer there, HE IS RISEN! (The roll is empty.)


  • I suggest double or tripling the recipes. Everyone loves these rolls so make plenty!
