To help children understand the meaning of Christ’s empty tomb,
make this fun and tasty treat.
1 can refrigerated breadstick dough
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Knead and press each breadstick into a flat circle. Place a
marshmallow in the center of the circle and pinch the dough around
the marshmallow. Roll the marshmallow-filled rolls into a round
ball. Spray the rolls with margarine. Combine sugar and cinnamon.
Sprinkle the rolls with the mixture. Place the rolls on a baking
sheet with the pinched edges down. Bake the rolls at 350 degrees
for 12 to 15 minutes until brown. Cool on a wire rack.
While the rolls bake, tell the Easter story. Then pray, thanking
Jesus for taking our place on the cross. Then enjoy a tasty Easter
treat as you celebrate that Christ’s tomb was hollow, just as these
rolls are hollow.
