Tried It Tuesday - Resurrection Rolls

I hate dying Easter eggs. I guess it's my OCDness and the high potential for a huge mess and the need for additional baths. Although this is no substitute, as my nearly-seven-year-old insisted, we tried Resurrection Rolls that I found on Pinterest (of course).

The ingredients are pretty basic - tube of crescent rolls, large marshmallows (one per roll), melted butter, and cinnamon/sugar. I actually had all of these things on hand.

For a really lovely explanation of the meaning and everything, click {here} when you're done reading my to-the-point version.

First, preheat the over to 350˚. Then take the marshmallow (representing Jesus and his purity) and roll it around in the melted butter (representing the embalming oils). Then roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture (representing the burial spices, according to the source).
Wrap it up in the crescent roll triangle (representing the cloth in which they wrapped Jesus). It is REALLY IMPORTANT that you seal up the edges really well. I learned that one the hard way. If you don't, you'll have a gooey, yet tasty, mess.
Anyway, put the sealed rolls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet with raised edges. Bake for 12 minutes (the oven represents the tomb). After they cool, cut one open to see that the marshmallow (Jesus) disappeared (mostly). Ahhhh, symbolism!!
And as an added bonus, they taste pretty good!
