Easter is a special time for our family and we always try and make it the most celebrated day of the year for our children. Today we had read about a biscuit recipe to show the empty tomb of Jesus and we knew we wanted to try this. So first let me show you what we needed.
Biscuits, Marshmellows, Chocolate chips
The instructions said to push a hole in the top of the biscuits, put a few chocolate chips and the marshmellow inside. This left us thinking that it would be an incredibly big hole to fit the marshmellow, so instead we pushed the middle in a way that allowed us to fit the chocolate chips and marshmellow.
From here our job was to pinch the dough over the top to cover the marshmellow and bake according to biscuit instructions.
What we expected from the instructions was that "The marshmellow will melt, leaving the insides hollow like an empty tomb". However, our result was not such; the middle that we had pinched had opened up and the marshmellow did not melt, but cooked with a brown glaze. It was not what we expected, but it definitely worked because it looked like the tomb with the stone in front. We let our kids roll the stone away just like on the day when Jesus rolled the stone away!
We loved this project (even though everything didn't happen as expected). As you can see, we were left with the chocolate chips behind the stone, and we weren't sure what they could represent - but they tasted good :)
