To celebrate Good Friday the girls and I made “Resurrection Rolls”. I originally learned to make these in college and we called them K-rocks, after the friend who taught us to make them. I had no idea then that they were “resurrection rolls”, but I love the idea! It is a fun way to talk about Jesus’s death and resurrection with kids!

If you want to make some, here is what you will need:
One package of crescent rolls
8 marshmallows
cinnamon and sugar mixed
melted butter
muffin tin
Open up a crescent roll. This is the cloth that you will wrap “Jesus’s body” in.

Take a marshmallow (Jesus’s body) and dip in in melted butter (oil) and cinnamon and sugar (spices) for burial.
Then wrap it up tight in the crescent roll (cloth) and put it in the tomb (muffin tin).
Sprinkle a little more “spices” on top (just cuz its yummy) and lick your fingers!
Put the rolls in the oven (350) for about 12 min or until they look slightly browned. Pull them out and let them cool a bit. Then for the exciting part…
Rip it open and look…
Jesus is gone! He is not there anymore!
Praise God Jesus is not in that tomb anymore, but he is RISEN!!
“The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”
