Resurrection Rolls

I put out a request for help the week before Easter for a fun craft to do with Wyatt. I got many great suggestions, but in the end, it was Auntie Geno's recipe for Resurrection Rolls that won out. I had never heard of doing this, but since Wyatt loves to bake this was a natural for us.
The bonus? They are absolutely delicious!!
What you need: And now I'm quoting Geno...
Get some Crescent rolls, cinnamon and sugar, butter and marshmallows.

Roll out the Crescent Rolls. (represents the tomb)
Roll the marshmallow in melted butter and the C&S mixture. (marshmallow represents Jesus)

Now wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll and bake in the oven at 325.

When they come out the marshmallow is gone (representing the empty tomb)

I usually make a simple homemade drizzle icing to have on the top. The cinnamon and sugar and marshmallow melt away into the crescent roll and it is delish!

So, we didn't do the drizzle...it was just one extra step and I really didn't feel like doing it.
But I did try to explain what and why we were doing everything, and then after we put the rolls in the oven, we read about Jesus' death in the Bible.
Then after we took them out and cut into them, the marshmallow was gone, we ate the yummy-ness and then read about Jesus rising from the dead.
It was a great exercise for Wyatt, because the "why" phase is officially in full swing. He has been asking questions here and there ever since.

We didn't have time to actually do this before Easter, but right after. It worked out good for Wyatt to do this after Easter, because then he had something to link it to.
And don't forget...they are very tasty little morsels!
Thanks Geeennnoooo!!
