Resurrection Rolls (Empty Tomb Rolls)

I found these on Catholic Icing's blog and can't wait to try them.

Ressurrection "Empty Tomb" Rolls by Catholic Icing Canned Crescent Rolls Small bowl of melted butter Small bowl of Cinnamon/Sugar Mixture Large Marshmallows **Before beginning, melt your butter, preheat your oven to the temperature on your crescent roll can, and cover your pan in parchment paper or aluminum foil, because the melted marshmallows can get messy!

1. Give each child a marshmallow, and tell them it represents Jesus. Have them dip it into the melted butter, and then roll it in the cinnamon sugar. These represent the oil and spices used to prepare Jesus' body for burial. 2. Now give each child a crescent roll, and have them wrap up the marshmallow tightly, pinching it closed as much as possible. The roll represents the linen cloths that Jesus' body was wrapped in. 3. Place your rolls into the oven, which symbolizes the tomb. Bake according to package directions, and pretend it has been 3 days! ;-) 4. an "empty tomb". Isn't that cool?! Jesus has risen! Alleluia, Alleluia! :-)
