Easter Breakfast Rolls

I want to share a recipe from the book A Christ-Centered Easter: Day-By-Day Activities to Celebrate Easter Week by Janet and Joe Hales.  I haven't actually made this recipe yet, but it sounds like a lot of fun to make so we'll be trying it this year!  :O)

"Prepare these rolls the night before Easter for part of a delicious Easter-morning breakfast.

1 package frozen bread or roll dough, thawed (or use the dough for your favorite homemade rolls)
6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 bag large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.  Divide the dough into individual roll-sized portions.  Press each portion into a flat circle.  Place 1 large marshmallow in the center of each roll.  Pinch roll dough very firmly around the marshmallow.  Roll each into a seamless, or nearly seamless, ball with your hands.  Brush rolls with melted butter.  Sprinkle sugar mixture over rolls.

Cover rolls with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator overnight.

On Sunday morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Take rolls out of the refrigerator and bake for 15 minutes until rolls are golden brown.  Just like Christ's tomb on Easter Sunday, these rolls will be empty!

Serving size depends on amount of dough used."

Let me know if you try these and what you think of them.  What are your favorite Easter traditions?
