Celebrating Easter at The Holiday Zone -- He is not here, for He is risen as He said!

Resurrection Buns

This activity represents the tomb being empty on Easter Morning. This is a great activity to do with children on Easter Morning.

Thanks to D. Emerson for sharing this recipe!

frozen bread dough
one bag marshmallows
cinnamon-sugar mixture
butter (melted)


  • Preheat oven to 325.

  • Take bread dough (thawed in fridge) and cut into squares about 1/4 in thick.

  • Take 1 marshmallow and place it in the center of the dough.

  • Now "fold" the dough around the marshmallow.

  • Dip the ball of dough in the melted butter and then roll it in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until covered.

  • Place on cookie sheet and bake at 325 for about 10-15 min. or until golden brown.

  • Allow buns to cool. The buns which were full when they went into the oven will now be empty -- just like the tomb where Christ was laid!

  • Consider reading the Easter story aloud while enjoying these seasonal treats.
