From my research years ago, most people complained that the rolls opened during cooking allowing the marshmallow and all the goodness to flow right on pan leaving behind a sad and pathetic roll…that doesn’t help when trying to bring home the point of the story.
To teach the story of Easter read the story from the Bible found in Matthew 27-28, Mark 15-16, Luke 23-24 (my favorite version), and/or John 19-20. (If you are not familiar with the Bible the same story is recounted by these four men…the story is virtually the same but is found in these four places in the Bible.) I’ve included a little legend for how to relate the story to the Empty Tomb Rolls, just in case you couldn’t figure it out.
After Jesus died on the cross he was wrapped in linen— roll in butter and cinnamon
Jesus put into tomb — crescent roll dough
3rd day Jesus has risen and no longer in tomb — open cooked roll to find no marshmallow
