In honor of Easter, I thought I would share a little recipe for a special Easter Morning treat my mom always made for us when I was small. These sweet rolls are such a fun way to convey the joyous message of Easter to little ones: peek inside to find an empty center to symbolize the empty tomb and Christ’s resurrection!
15 individually frozen rolls, thawed (I use Rhodes brand)
15 large marshmallows
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Flatten each roll into a circle and place one marshmallow in the center of the circle. Wrap dough around marshmallow and pinch to seal. Make doubly sure that the dough is sealed tightly around the marshmallow to ensure when the marshmallow melts during baking, the sugar does not leak out.
In a shallow dish, combine cinnamon and sugar. Dip each marshmallow-filled ball into melted butter. Dredge in cinnamon/sugar mixture, coating evenly on all sides. Place in greased 9×13 baking dish, seam side down. Repeat with remaining rolls. Cover pan with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to rise overnight.
On Easter morning, heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove rolls from refrigerator. Remove plastic wrap from pan and bake rolls for about 30 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm and enjoy this little reminder that Christ is risen indeed!
