Usually, we make traditional Resurrection Rolls, which are rolls baked with marshmallows inside. When the marshmallow melts away, and “empty tomb” is left in the middle of the roll, which is a fun way to bring religion into Easter for kids. Last year, we spiced it up a little and made rainbow resurrection rolls!
To find full directions for making Resurrection Rolls, see my former post. These were super easy to make! We started with a few cans of ready-to-bake crescent rolls, and every color of peep.
I love all the cute peep stuff you see floating around this time of year! They are so colorful and fun!
First, cover your pan with foil (unless you want to spend a lot of unnecessary time scraping melted marshmallow off of it later). Then, place 1 peep on each crescent roll.
Wrap the crescent rolls around the peeps, and pinch tightly. It’s so easy, a child can do it.
Bake according to package directions or until golden brown. Allow to cool.
What happens when we cut them open?…
They’re all holding a surprise inside!
Colorful Resurrection Rolls, here we come!
These were very quick and easy to make. Although we make our Easter story cookies on Holy Saturday, we made these Empty Tomb Rolls after returning from Easter Sunday Mass, and then ate them with brunch. Looking forward to make them again this year once we’re finished observing Lent.
