Our New Easter Tradition

In the lead up to Easter this year we have been trying to think of some Easter traditions our family can do to get away from bunnies and eggs. Don’t get me wrong we will still have an egg hunt, but with little miss now being five, we want to start something a little more significant that she might carry on.

I pinned these ressurection rolls a while ago, and given it’s Easter I thought I would give them a go.

They are something you can make with the kids and I don’t think even I can stuff them up

So here’s what you need. I got the recipe from coffeewithus3.

• Pastry (I am going to buy mine but if you want to be a next level Pinterest mum then you could make it)

• 8 Marshmallows

• 2 Tbsp. of Butter

• 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon

• 2 Tbsp. Sugar

• Muffin tin

 

Get everything out and pre heat oven to 375 degrees

Now you need to mix sugar and cinnamon in the bowl together

Melt butter in another bowl

Cut your pastry into triangles

 

Now it gets a bit messy and us OCD mums might need to take a deep breath…

Get the little ones to dip the marshmellow in Butter then in the sugar and cinnamon mix.

Then they wrap the marshmellow in the pastry triangle. Do this a few times until you have used up the pastry.

You can then place them on the greased tray. Putting them seam down is best.

When do this if you have older kids you can mention these butter and cinnamon spice represents the ladies preparing Jesus body before he was placed in the tomb.

Then put them in the oven for 10-12 mins.

While they are baking read the Easter story together and chat about what Easter really means.

In no time the timer will ping and they will be ready.

Get them out of the oven and let them cool for a bit. You can sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon over the top of them.

Once they have cooled, chop them open so the kids can see inside. They will see the roll “tomb” is bare just like the tomb was on the third day. I think this is best thing! The marshmellow has melted away and left a space where it used to be. Just like Jesus rising and leaving a space in the tomb.

My little miss and I made them. It was great she really enjoyed it. I NAILED the first batch.

But then I might have got a bit cocky and the next batch burnt.

So maybe I will put this down as

1 Nail and 1 Fail

Would love to hear if you try them.
