Resurrection Rolls Recipe

Resurrection rolls are fun, easy, and yummy! They resemble cinnamon rolls. We like to bake them on Holy Saturday and eat them for breakfast on Easter morning. (This printable recipe only features the actual recipe. Please refer to the original post for how to incorporate the Easter story while making the recipe with our family.)

  • Parchment Paper or aluminum foil


  • 1 can Canned Crescent Rolls
  • 3 Tbs Butter
  • Small bowl of Cinnamon/Sugar Mixture (3 Tbs sugar + 1 Tbs cinnamon)
  • 8 Large Marshmallows or the number of crescent rolls you have


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and cover your pan in parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Melt your butter.
  • Dip each marshmallow in the melted butter and cover it completely.
  • Immediately roll each marshmallow in the cinnamon-sugar mixture after covering it in butter.
  • Place the marshmallows on the crescent rolls, and wrap them up. Pinch all the seams shut as well as possible. They will look like dough balls when you’re finished.
  • Place your rolls in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until they are golden brown.
  • Allow the rolls to cool for about 10 minutes after removing them from the oven.
  • Cut the roll in half to reveal that it’s empty inside!
