Resurrection Rolls represent the empty tomb following the resurrection of Jesus Christ and are the perfect way to celebrate the true meaning of Easter with your family.
Resurrection Rolls- or Empty Tomb rolls- as they are commonly called are a tasty way to help remember the true meaning of Easter.
These Easter rolls represent the empty tomb following the resurrection of Jesus. They are so simple to make so don’t let it intimidate you!
They are perfect to make with children as you teach them the story of Jesus’ resurrection.
As the Resurrection Rolls bake, the marshmallow disappears and the rolls become hollowed out representing the empty tomb.
This is a great visual for young and old alike.
What can I serve with Resurrection Rolls?
Because these rolls are typically made around Easter we would suggest serving them with anything you would eat for your Easter feast.
This might include:
The easy way to make these is to use canned crescent rolls. However, you could make your own dough or use frozen Rhodes rolls that have thawed.
Are Resurrection Rolls a dessert? Because they are sweet they could be considered a dessert or a pastry.
Can I make Resurrection Rolls even if I’m not religious? Of course! Regardless, they are still a delicious treat.
What are Resurrection Rolls? The empty tomb rolls are meant to symbolize Christ not being found in the tomb after he was resurrected. Some people like to tell the Easter story as they make them with their family. You can explain how Christ’s body wasn’t in the tomb after the resurrection but just like the rolls have become sweet- so is death because all of us can live again because He Is Risen.
Can I make Resurrection Rolls in advance? Yep! You can prep them beforehand just keep them in the refrigerator and bake them within 24 hours.
Can I use mini marshmallows for Resurrection Rolls? I wouldn’t recommend it. And the giant sized ones will be too big. Stick with your regular sized marshmallows for this one.
How long do Resurrection Rolls keep? They are best right out of the oven, but they will stay good in a sealed container for about five days.
