  • Prep Time: 7 min
  • Cook Time: 13 min
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


An easy Easter baking project for your family or Sunday School class


  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • large marshmallows
  • cinnamon sugar


  1. Separate the dough into 4 rectangles, place two marshmallows  on each rectangle toward one end
  2. Fold the dough over the marshmallows, crimping the edges to seal,  (You could also used the jumbo canned biscuits, flattening it into a larger circle and wrapping the dough around a single marshmallow as pictured above.)
  3. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar
  4. Bake at 375 for 11 – 13 minutes
  5. Allow to cool a few minutes before serving, the marshmallows will melt inside the dough leaving an empty space, a culinary way to remember the Easter story.




Caution: be sure to let them cool for about 10 minutes. The melted marshmallow in the bottom of the empty tomb will be molten, sticky, and very hot!
