I am re-posting this dessert/Easter idea. It is a traditional Easter dessert we make. It is a fun dessert but also a vivid testimony of Christ's resurrection from the dead, we make "Empty Tomb" pastries.
This is not so healthy but easy which is really a plus with all the other hubbub going on that day! :) I use Pillsbury croissant rolls. I give each person one wedge; one marshmallow; and paper w/ tooth pick.
Place on the table several sets of bowls. One will have melted butter and one with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Each person will roll their marshmallow 1st in butter, then in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. They then place it in the croissant dough and seal the marshmallow well. Each creation needs to have the person's name on their creation...you have the toothpick and paper. I have found the toothpick stays in the dough and the paper will endure the oven temp and survive the cooking process.
This is such a great picture of the resurrection as the marshmallow disappears during the cooking process. When we eat our dessert, we can rejoice that Christ has risen and the tomb is empty!
