Fun Friday - How to Make Easter Empty Tomb Rolls
Hello Again! It’s that time of the week again, are you as excited as I am?! I am even more excited because this recipe is one of our family favorites.
Since Easter is right around the corner, I figured I’d postpone my “Mermaid Pasta” one more week, and because I want to keep you all on the edge of your seats. So, with that being said, let me introduce to you deliciousness!
Empty tomb rolls, resurrection rolls, or if you’re not religious (trust me, you’ll still want to make these amazing gooey rolls) we call them marshmallow gooey rolls. I found this recipe a few years ago through “Oh Sweet Basil”. They have social media, so please go check them out!
Anyway, let’s get started! I was going to wait till my little army was awake and home from school but I kept getting this nagging feeling to just make the rolls with my son. So… I did, and the payoff was tenfold. I talked him through Christ’s body being wrapped in white clothing (the marshmallow), the butter representing the oils they anointed Him with as well as the cinnamon sugar for the spices and herbs, then He’s placed in the tomb (the rolls), and finally resurrected the third day (the empty rolls/ empty tomb). I recommend waiting till the rolls are done and saying how Christ isn’t found in the tomb, for He is Risen. Then open up the rolls and see the empty tomb!
My son and I had so much fun making these together, but wanna know the best part? When we picked up my oldest daughter from school, he was so excited to tell her all about the rolls and Christ’s resurrection. He remembered it all, and told her word for word what it all meant. My heart was full. Need I say there were a few tears shed?! I call today a mom win with lots of messy sticky, gooey rolls to go around :)
