The Girl Who Ate Everything.
This is a great way for little ones to start learning about the real meaning of Easter and what Jesus did for us.
The ingredients and steps stand for the preparation of the body of Jesus, laying him in the tomb, sealing the tomb, and then how he had already risen when the stone was rolled away.
marshmallows - body of Jesus
melted butter - oils of embalming
cinnamon - spices to anoint His body
dough - cloths to wrap His body
oven – the tomb
cavity in bun – the empty cloths
1 pkg refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted
Separate rolls into eight triangles. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each marshmallow into butter, roll in cinnamon-sugar and place on a triangle. Pinch dough around marshmallow, sealing all edges. *Make sure to seal well or all the marshmallow will escape. Dip tops of dough into remaining butter and cinnamon-sugar. Place with sugar side up in greased muffin cups. It helps to use jumbo muffin tins so that the juice doesn't overflow. Bake at 375 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes. Eat warm.
