Easter Book Giveaway and Resurrection Rolls Recipe Featuring Chef Ty

When I first started my blog I felt like every good blog had to feature recipes and lovely how-to photos.  I even attempted a food post, but it was a failure and I soon discovered I am not a food blogger.  I’m not very good at following recipes.  I like to think I’m just too creative, but really I’m too lazy to measure. (You can read about my creative pot roast here.)
So with that as a disclaimer, I want to share a recipe with you that is also a hands-on way to share the Easter story with children. 
Resurrection Rolls!
             1 tube of crescent rolls (the linen cloths)
4 T. Butter, melted (oils)
8 large marshmallows (Jesus)
cinnamon and sugar  (spices)
cookie sheet
1)    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2)   Set up an assembly line: a bowl of marshmallows, a bowl of melted butter and a bowl of cinnamon and sugar.
3)   Open the crescent rolls and separate into triangles.
4)   Coat one marshmallow with butter then cinnamon and sugar and place on crescent dough triangle.

 5)   Wrap the dough around the marshmallow and seal all the edges really well.  Place on cookie sheet.

6)   Repeat with remaining marshmallows. 
7)   Bake for 12-16 minutes until golden brown.
8)   Allow rolls to cool. Cut open. The Tomb is Empty!  Jesus is Risen!
     While the rolls are in the oven, read the Easter story together.  You can read it straight from the Bible (John 19:38-42, 20:1-10) or from a children’s book.  We read The Story of Easter by Fiona Boon.  It’s a colorful cardboard book perfect for Ty to enjoy and has the cutest little handle on the spine so he can carry it around.  This book is also my Tommy Nelson giveaway this month, so you can enter to win your own copy below.

  "And all this was God’s plan:
That Jesus had to die
To pay the price for sin, for all our wrongs and lies.
And so, because of Jesus,
When our lives are through,
We can live Heaven
If we trust and love Him, too.”
The Story of Easter, Thomas Nelson

I first saw this idea at Cheerios and Lattes.
