Resurrection Rolls (aka Empty Tomb Rolls)

A fitting recipe on which to end my Lenten fast from blogging this year: resurrection rolls. Carrie and I first made these a couple of years ago, and they're yummy! Kids can help, and they are a fun visual reminder of what we will be celebrating this coming Easter Sunday in particular. Recipe can be increased as many times as you'd like. We've served these as snack food, as dessert, or as a breakfast treat.

1 tube crescent rolls
8 marshmallows
melted butter
cinnamon sugar mixture--just eyeball it (remember, cinnamon goes a long way)

Roll marshmallows in melted butter
Roll marshmallows in cinnamon sugar mixture
Wrap up each marshmallow in a crescent triangle, sort of making a rounded ball--seal up every little corner.

Bake according to directions on crescent roll tube--it is best if you make these on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.... they are quite gooey! The marshmallows melt (if they're not fully melted when you take them out of the oven, let them sit for a few minutes). Then, they look like the empty tomb!
