Empty Tombs For Easter Morn

The Kids dipping, rolling, and sealing.

Before poppin' it in the oven.

Before poppin' it in the oven.

This is a GREAT kids project! I got the idea off of my friend Christy's blog. I then googled it and discovered many variations of this fun and yummy Easter project.

If using this recipe for an Easter lesson, the ingredients and steps in this recipe stand for the preparation of the body of Jesus, laying him in the tomb, sealing the tomb, and then how he had already risen when they rolled the rock away from the tombs entrance.

Though I had Easter in mind when making this recipe, it could also be used for many different lessons such as "Magic Trick" (disappearing).

I was over at the house where I help some kids with homework, and decided that with my lack of an oven in the hotel, and their love for anything active, we could do this project together. I was pretty laid back when it came to them sealing them tight so some marshmallow did leak out....but the experiment was still a hit! Very fun:)

Well here it is Ladies and Gents.....

Empty Tombs For Easter Morn
Makes 8

1- 8oz tube of refrigerated crescent rolls. (8 rolls)
8- Large marshmallows
1/4 cup Melted Butter
Cinnamon and Sugar


-Roll out Crescent rolls and separate the triangles.

-Dip marshmallows one at a time in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

-Place the coated marshmallow at an end of the crescent roll and roll it up. Then pinch all the edges together tightly so that the marshmallow has NO way of escaping.
It is VERY important that it is sealed well ALL OVER.

-Dip the top of the roll in melted butter, followed by dipping the buttered top in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

-Place the roll on a cookie sheet with freshly buttered and sugared side up.
(check it again with your eyes to make sure it is tightly sealed.

-Bake at 375 for 11-14 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.

-Cool 1-2 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
