Resurrection Rolls for Easter

We usually modify recipes to our own likes, dietary tolerances, cooking skills ๐Ÿ˜‰ , and budget. This is the ORIGINAL RECIPE I followed.

I made some notes at the top portion, but the full list of ingredients and instructions is at the bottom. We’re not food bloggers and I don’t always remember to take pics (you know, because the stove/oven is on and things may burn while I’m taking the pics…not that I would know anything about that), but we thought it might be helpful to others out there who are cooking newbies or don’t love cooking (LIKE ME!) if we share some simple recipes we have tried and like that aren’t super difficult to make or with lots of unfamiliar ingredients. Seriously, if I can do it, you will most likely be able to as well. Note: The only dietary limitations we have are no cashews and limited/no shellfish for the kiddos, but if anyone wants us to try any GF, DF, SF, __F recipes, let us know.


The Ingredients

I like that this is super simple and enjoyed by most. You probably already have butter and sugar and possibly cinnamon at your house, so you just need to pick up a bag of marshmallows and a can of crescent roll dough. Or if you make those things from scratch, roll with that. Get it? :p

The Process

If you have a Bible or storybook Bible, you can read the Easter story before, during, or after. I’m sure there are sites/blogs that have more detailed Scripture for each portion, but we read parts of John 19 and 20 for this activity. If you are super duper organized, you can read other Scripture leading up to the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection during Holy Week.

Dough = Linens
Marshmallow = Jesus
Butter = Embalming oils
Cinnamon Sugar = Spices
Oven = Tomb

The Result

See photo above. We didn’t take any other ones.

Our Thoughts

It was a hit with everyone. I’m pretty sure someone said, “This is really good. I mean, really good,” quite a few times during her first roll. And yes, we’ve made these before. And those who haven’t had Resurrection Rolls before was impressed by how the story illustrated what happened when Jesus had risen!

Recipe + Next Time…


  • 1 can of crescent roll dough
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 2ish tablespoons(?) melted butter
  • Cinnamon sugar = Cinnamon + Sugar


  • Unroll the crescent rolls.
  • Roll marshmallows in the cinnamon sugar.
  • Wrap marshmallows in crescent roll dough, one marshmallow per dough triangle, making sure to pinch dough together.
  • Feel free to brush (or drizzle like I did) butter on top of the rolls. If you have extra cinnamon sugar, you can dust it on top too. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Place rolls in oven and bake according to package directions.
  • Enjoy!

Bolded instructions can be done by younger chefs!
