Easter Breakfast! Resurection Buns

Easter, like Christmas, is a very meaningful and important time for our family! We love and take part in the fun traditions like egg hunts, and Easter baskets stuffed with goodies, but are always looking for fun ways to keep our family focused on the actual reason we celebrate Easter. This recipe has become a fun project we feel accomplished just that. 

Resurrection Buns

*a can of Grand biscuits
*large marshmallows
  1. Preheat oven according to the directions on the biscuits.
  2. Flatten the biscuit out until it's about 5 inches across.
  3. The marshmallow represents Jesus.Explain that it is white because it stands for His purity and His sinless life.
  4. Roll the Marshmallow in melted butter sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Explain how they anointed Jesus body with oil, and spices. 
  5. Place the marshmallow in the center of the biscuit, then fold the sides around it forming a "tomb". Pinch the sides of the tomb closed. Explain how Jesus tomb was sealed with a large stone.
  6. Place it crease side down on a baking sheet so they will not open while cooking. 
  7. Bake the buns. Follow package directions.
  8. Allow time to cool, the marshmallow will be very hot!

  • When the children bite into their buns they will be surprised to find the center empty. The marshmallow has melted. As each child discovers the empty tomb, we repeat : He is not here for He is risen.
  • As you eat the biscuits,  talk about the sweetness of the biscuits and how sweet a gift Jesus gave us when he died for our sins, and then rose 3 days later proving He is our Savior and the Son of God!

I love this project.  It is a great way for my kids to remember what Easter really means, and for us to have a little fun while we do it.  Hope you enjoy!!
