Resurrection Rolls Cooking Tips:

Before you get started cooking, here are some tips to keep in mind.

  • I’ve had better results cooking this dish using name brand marshmallows. They seem to melt better.
  • When making these rolls, make certain to keep one hand clean and use the other for rolling the marshmallows in cinnamon sugar. Your clean hand will need to be used for sealing the edges of the dough.  The reasoning for this is because if you get sugar granules on the dough near the seams, they may not seal properly and the marshmallows may cook out! 
  • I strongly suggest using cupcake liners in a muffin tin for this recipe because it is messy. 
  • If you don’t want to sprinkle sugar on top, you can do a simple glaze instead which is a simple recipe of 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 to 3 tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Symbolic meanings for the parts of the Resurrection Rolls

  • Marshmallow – Jesus’ body (Luke 23:26-46)
  • Crescent dough – The linen used to wrap Jesus’ body (Luke 23:47-54)
  • Melted butter and cinnamon sugar – Anointing oil and spices for the body that the women planned to use on Jesus body after the Sabbath (Luke 23:55-56, Luke 24:1)
  • Oven – The tomb (Luke 23:53, Mark 16:1-6)
  • Empty roll – The empty grave clothes or the empty tomb (John 20:3-7)

Ingredients for Resurrection Rolls

  • 1 (8 ounces) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 8 regular-sized marshmallows {I recommend using the brand name marshmallows!}
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

How to make Resurrection Rolls

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 8 wells in a muffin tin with baking cups (for easier clean up) or spray the wells with non-stick cooking spray. You don’t want these muffins to stick!
  • Unroll crescent dough and divide into 8 triangles at the perforations.

  • In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.

  • Dip first, then give it a good coating!

  • Place coated marshmallow on the large end of the crescent triangle and fold the dough over the marshmallow tightly sealing the edges so the marshmallow does not melt and leak.

Easter treat

  • Finish wrapping the dough around the marshmallow and form into a nice, small ball. Again, another place that kids would be super helpers!
