These are super simple, and kid friendly to make.  I made them for my son's preschool and everyone loved them...they aren't super sweet, you can actually taste the biscuit in there.

I'll start with the finished snack:


Now here is the deal:
You start with a marshmellow in the middle of a squished biscuit.  Then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar...not too much just a little.


Wrap up and seal in the marshmellow or Jesus if you will.  Put the seam side down and sprinkle just a bit more cinnamon to help out the brown color.


Bake according to biscuit directions.  I use the 10 in a can bisuits. 
the marshmellows leak out (Jesus leaving the tomb) and you are left with an empty tomb, and a yummy snack.
I tried to get a picture of the empty tomb.


Enjoy.  Feel free to ask any questions!

Those look really tasty. Thanks for sharing!

I don't know if I'd go with the analogy. I don't like the idea of Him ooozing out like that. They do look like empty little tombs though!

These are awesome!  Thanks for sharing the instructions!

The mom of one of my Sunday School students brought these in as a surprise for our class today and it was such a nice way to relate the topic of the day to our snack time.  I quickly put away our frosted animal crackers and we ate these instead!

Yea, maybe I should have written out the story a bit better about Jesus, but I was in a hurry.  I re-read it and I guess it didn't really do the story of Easter justice.  Also, I'm not sure that the kids/audience are really supposed to see the tombs cooking.  The marshmallows end up on the pan, and they don't go with the snack.  What I did was brought in a biscuit and marshmallow, showed them how I wrapped the marshmallow up so there was no way that marshmallow could get out of the biscuit!  and then, "And this is how they came out of the oven, the marshmallow is gone!"  And if there is a little marshmallow left on the bottom of the tomb, then you can say it is the cloth they wrapped Jesus in.  I also made these after the kids had been talking about Easter for a week or so at school, so they knew the Easter story.  I think it would also work well to make these to introduce the story to the kids so they have a visual to recall.

But if you believe in Jesus, it is a pretty cool way to show kids what happened.

Oh, and I hope I didn't come off as I invented these or anything...I got the recipe from a church preschool a long time ago.  I'm sure there are different versions.  My hubby said he used to make them with crescent rolls, but I found those to be too soft and didn't keep the shape very well.

And I used Pilsbury (brand name) canned biscuits, but I'm sure any biscuit dough will do...just as long as you seal in the marshmallow very well.

Yum!  I have to make some of these.

Sorry though but I am a week bit confused, due to people in the US and UK speaking two different languages.  What's biscuit?  Is it what we call scones?  It's not cookie dough, is it?  Is it crunchy when you bite it, or is it more squidgey?
