"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 large white marshmallows
melted butter
cinnamon & sugar mix

1. Give each child one triangle of crescent roll dough. This
represents the tomb.
2. Each child takes one marshmallow. This represents the body of Jesus
3. Dip the marshmallow into the butter and roll in the cinnamon &
sugar mixture. This represents the oil & spices that the body was
anointed with upon burial.
4. Lay the marshmallow on the triangle dough & carefully wrap it
around the marshmallow.
5. Make sure all seams are pinched together well (otherwise the
marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams).
6. Bake according to package instructions.
7. Cool.
8. Break open the tomb and the body is no longer there!

Personal Notes:
Note 1 - easier to seal if butter and spices are on outside of dough
Note 2 - I tried this with Smith & Fisher children with my old marshmallows - they had trouble disappearing. You need fresh ones!
