Easter Reserrection Rolls...

This Easter we decided to try baking Resurrection Rolls. Mom thought this would be good way to help all us bears understand about Jesus resurrection and the empty tomb.
Mom wanted to make sure that we understood that Easter is not all about the Easter Bunny, we are celebrating Jesus resurrection.
The recipe calls for 8 refrigerator crescent rolls, 8 - marshmellows, melted butter, cinnamon and sugar.
I helped by dipping the marshmellows in the melted butter and then sprinkling them with the cinnamon and sugar.
Mom had to help get the marshmellows out of the butter. Mom helped with rolling them up too. As a bear messy paws are not acceptable.
We got all that done, then Cocoa told us we did it wrong. We were supposed to roll the buttered marshmellow in the cinnamon and sugar. They might have sealed better if the cinnamon and sugar wasn't on the edges before mom sealed them. I caught some of the marshmellows oozing out through seams that weren't sealed tightly.
Not quite done yet.
  You need to get them off the pan before they cool completely, because they will stick
I think that one looks empty. Mom cut another one open after they were cooled.
Whoa...look you guys....
Yum! They were sure good.
Only one left. The empty tomb.  Ooohhhh, we ate too many!

The roll represents the tomb where Jesus was buried after his crucifixion. The marshmallow represents Jesus body.  The melted butter, cinnamon and sugar represent the oils and spices used to anoint and prepare Jesus body for burial. The empty roll, on the third day they found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty.

He is Risen! Happy Easter everyone.

My mom saw this recipe on several other blogs, she printed our beautiful recipe card here, just choose what size you want (3x5 or 4x6). This is the first time my mom ever heard of this recipe. A great activity to do with children and I think bears too.

Grr-bye for now,

That has a good meaning, and it sounds very tasty, too.

That is a very nice activity to do on Easter. How do you make one empty but look all the same?

Pretty cool, I think it is because the roll is mostly baked by the time the marshmellow melts inside, plus they puff up before the melt. I kind of wish you could watch it happen from the inside. It is a wonder like the resurrection of Jesus.

Hi, Buttons! :)
It sounds really tasty! Here, we don't do that food. In Catalonia we do "monas". There are chocolate statues.
See you! :-)
