Easter Tomb Rolls

I found this recipe off a friend's blog and I think it is such a fun idea for Easter.

Easter Tomb Rolls

1 pkg. frozen dough, thawed
6 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 bag large marshmallows
1/4 c. butter, melted

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside. Divide the dough into individual roll-sized portions. Press each portion into a flat circle. Place 1 large marshmallow in the center of each roll. Pinch roll dough very firmly around the marshmallow. Roll each into a seamless, or nearly seamless ball with your hands. Brush rolls with melted butter sprinkle. Sprinkle sugar mixture over rolls. Cover rolls with plastic wrap and put in refrigerator overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take rolls out of refrigerator and bake for 15 minutes, until rolls are golden brown.

Just like Christ's Tomb, these rolls will be empty.

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I am excited to try it out and use it as a "teaching opportunity" for my kids.
