He is not here: because he is resurrected
For me and any Christian, these words chill my back. It is important for me to let my children know the real reason why we celebrate Christmas and Easter.
Although it is fun to dye Easter eggs and make holiday gifts, I make sure that our whole family spends time talking about Jesus’ sacrifice and the fact of his resurrection.
These resurrection scrolls are a great way to teach children the story of why we celebrate Easter and always enjoy delicious food. The recipe is very simple, little hands can help in the kitchen and have a meaningful learning experience.
The story of the resurrection scroll
Using visual aids is a good way to educate children, especially those that can be eaten. Consider making these resurrection scrolls with your family and explain how the different steps represent the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. For example:
- Rolling marshmallows in cinnamon and sugar is like a friend of Jesus preparing his body with fragrant spices.
- Wrapping the dough around marshmallows is like wrapping Jesus in linen cloth.
- Because Jesus was in the tomb for 3 days, he asked the children to sit in front of the oven and watch them roast. You can talk about the feelings of his friends and family, or you can share your own feelings.
- When the rolls are cold, read the account in Matthew 28:1-6. You can also find the 20th chapter of the Gospel of John.
- Let the children eat the resurrection roll and see if the center is empty, like a tomb.
When making these empty tomb scrolls, please remember these tips…
- No matter what dough you use, the concept of melting marshmallows will work. I like the convenience of using canned crescent roll dough. You can also use thawed Rhodes frozen rolls or your favorite homemade roll recipes.However, you must Adjust the baking time according to different dough recipes.
- You have to be very careful Seal the edge of the roll, Because the marshmallows just want to seep out when they are roasted.
- The important thing is Quickly pull them off the baking sheet After baking and use a non-stick lining, because the melted marshmallow will caramelize and harden as it cools, then it becomes more difficult to remove the rolls from the pan.
- After baking, The resurrection scroll will last 1-2 days When placed in a closed container.
Put them in the muffin liner:
Dip the dough into the melted butter and put it in the muffin tin with the seam side down. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until puffed and golden brown. The original recipe called for 12 minutes to bake in the oven, but ours was ready at 8 o’clock.
If you want to add glaze:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- A few tablespoons of milk or heavy cream
- Almond extract (optional)
When baking, mix powdered sugar with a few drops of milk or whipped cream. Add liquid until the desired consistency is reached. We like it to be thicker, so we chose to use whipped cream and only added a little. Almond extract is optional, but if you have it, I strongly recommend using it. We added a few drops and blended until smooth and creamy. Spread the glaze on the warm melt and serve. delicious!
