Make these Resurrection Buns the night before Easter to serve to children on Easter morning. Children will enjoy biting into these buns to find that they’re empty — just as Jesus’ tomb was empty on Easter morning.
- Pillsbury crescent roll dough
- Large marshmallows
- Melted butter
Elementary and Preteen Bible Snack: Easter Resurrection Buns
The night before church, remove the dough from the package and unfold the dough. Then separate the dough into triangles. (They should already be perforated in triangle shapes.) Then wrap each of the triangles around a large marshmallow and close the dough tightly. Then roll the marshmallow-wrapped-in-dough in the melted butter. After covering in butter, roll the dough ball into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Lastly, place the rolls in a well-greased pan and cover in plastic.
Before church, remove the rolls from the refrigerator and remove the plastic wrap. Place in an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Bake until golden brown. The marshmallows will melt and leave a sticky syrup in the buns.
Each package of Pillsbury crescent roll dough will make eight delicious Resurrection Buns.
