"Empty Tomb" Marshmallow Delights

It's Easter! Well, not quite, but it's close enough to start preparing recipes for this very special holiday. I found this recipe here and I love it. It's supposed to represent the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Below is the symbolism of each of the ingredients. 

(This would be a great project for Moms of "little ones" to make for Easter.)

Two of my very good photogenic friends!
(The one on the left liked it so much she was blinded by the goodness!)
She also has a really cool cooking blog!
Large Marshmallows - body of Jesus
Melted Butter - oils of embalming
Cinnamon and Sugar Mix- spices used to anoint the body
Crescent Roll - the wrapping of Jesus’ body or the tomb
Oven – the tomb
Cavity in bun – the empty tomb or the empty cloths
The Ingredients.  I have no idea why the cream cheese ended up in this picture, maybe it's because I've been using a lot of cream cheese lately!
The dough - if you buy the Pillsbury brand it comes pre-cut,
another time saver. 

"Marshmallows dipped in butter??? Sweetie what are you making???" These were my Dad's questions for me.  I assured him it would all turn out fine in the end. =)

I tried to wrap this like a present, but it didn't turn out to well.
              Look out Dippin' Dots! I'm coming in with Dippin' Dough!             

My first Dippin' Dough creation...hmm the FDA might not be too happy with raw dough.
Eh..never mind. =)
Whoops... I guess I'll need to pinch the edges some more next time.  What's SUPPOSED to happen is...the marshmallows melt away and you are left with a round empty shell of dough like the empty tomb.  Check out the recipe link at the top for the real deal!

I've noticed that professional bloggers have cool stuff behind their food,
so I figured my jean skirt would work...or not. =)

1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

1. Separate Crescent rolls into eight triangles
2. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each marshmallow into the butter, roll in cinnamon-sugar and place on top of the triangle.
3. Pinch dough around marshmallow, sealing all edges. (Make sure to seal well or the marshmallow WILL escape instead of dissolving away like it's supposed to.)
4. Dip tops of dough into remaining butter and cinnamon-sugar. Place dough with sugar side up in a greased muffin tin.
5. Bake at 375 degrees for 13-15 minutes. Eat warm.

I don't know who the original author of this recipe is, but I loved it! My Grandmother who lives in PA was the one who sent me the link! During the summer I'm going to visit her, so I'm sure there will be lots of new country recipes on the blog. I can't wait! (My brother Luke counts down the months, weeks, days and minutes until we go...yeah we're very excited to see our family!)

GB2- God Bless, Go BAKE!!!
