"Jesus Is Risen" Rolls

Reader Submitted

To help children understand the meaning of Christ's empty tomb, make this fun and tasty treat.

1 can refrigerated breadstick dough
Large marshmallows
Spray margarine
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Baking sheet
Wire rack

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.
