Easter Morning Breakfast Roll

Spring 068

Make these extremely simple rolls the night before Easter Sunday and your family will enjoy a truly sweet Easter memory.


Spring 050

1 package of marshmallows

1 package of frozen roll dough (THAWED).  I used the Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, but only because I was lazy and didn’t want to make my own w.wheat dough.

1/3 cube of butter (melted)

4 Tablespoons of Sugar

3/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon

The Night Before:  mix your cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and then put the bowl to the side.  Carefully open your package of now thawed dinner rolls and separate them.  With your hands flatten each roll out into a small circle.  Place a large marshmallow into the center of each circle.Spring 052

Pinch it closed, carefully making sure the seal is tight.

Then roll it in your hands to make it more of a ball shape and hide the seams.

Spring 053

Place it on a large cookie sheet with sides (or cake pan).  While cooking the marshmallow make leak out and you don’t want a gooey mess in the bottom of your oven.  Continue until all the dough is used.

Spring 056  

Melt your butter in the microwave for around 20 seconds.  Then brush the melted butter generously onto each roll.

Spring 057

Then sprinkle the rolls with your sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Cover your rolls with a plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Spring 061

Easter Morning.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Remove the plastic wrap and place your cookie sheet in the oven.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.

Spring 065

Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.  The smell will be so good you won’t want to wait too long before the whole family devours them.

What’s special about these Easter Rolls.  Like Christ’s tomb these rolls will be empty.  Their sweetness reminding all of the joy of our Savior's resurrection.

Have a Happy Easter Breakfast!
