Resurrection Rolls

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I spotted this recipe at  It is an easy, kid-friendly dessert with an Easter theme.  The marshmallow in the middle of the roll turns into caramel goo when baked, leaving a hollow center in the middle, which can represent the empty tomb on Easter morning.  I baked them in a loaf pan, but they could have been baked in a cake pan.  This makes 8 servings and takes about 30 minutes.  They are best when freshly made.

Cooking spray

ΒΌ cup granulated sugar

2 tsp. ground cinnamon

8-oz. tube of crescent roll dough

8 marshmallows

4 Tbs. unsalted butter

Grease the pan with cooking spray.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together in a small bowl the sugar and cinnamon.  Melt the butter in another small bowl.  Open up the tube of crescent roll dough and divide into 8 pieces.  Dip a marshmallow in the melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar.  Encase with a piece of crescent roll dough.  Dip the filled dough in the melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar.  Put the roll seam-side down in the pan.  Repeat with the other marshmallows.

Bake for 18-20 minutes until the rolls are golden brown and feel firm.  Let cool slightly before serving.
