Recipe of the Week..."Empty Tombs"

As some of you may know, many years ago I was a preschool teacher at a Christian preschool program. I also spent several years teaching 2 and 3 year olds at our church. Each year during Easter-time when I would share a lesson about Christ's crucifixion and resurrection I would let the kiddos make "Empty Tombs" as a snack and to use as a visual to explain that Jesus was alive and the tomb was empty. (Don't worry - I did all of the baking part!!) Here's a photo of an "Empty Tomb" before adding powdered sugar:

And here's a plate of "Empty Tombs" after dusting them with powdered sugar...Yummmm!

These are SUPER SIMPLE to make, and I encourage you to share the Easter Story with the kiddos in your life by making some of these sweet treats! Here's how you make them:

  • 1 package refrigerated homestyle biscuits
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • powdered sugar
Preheat oven following package directions on refrigerated biscuit can. Open biscuit can and remove biscuit dough. Flatten out each biscuit and add a marshmallow to the center of each. Wrap the biscuit dough around the marshmallow and pinch the top closed. Place marshmallow filled biscuits onto a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes or until biscuits are lightly browned and the marshmallow is melted and gooey, leaving a "hole" in the center of the biscuit representing the "Empty Tomb". Place on a plate and dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm while sharing the resurrection story with your little simple and delicious!!

Have a blessed day!
