Aaack! I admit that I went Googling this afternoon for other oddities of Easter (besides Peeps). But slap me silly — look what I found!
According to a children’s ministry site, you should “make these buns the night before Easter to serve to children on Easter morning. Children will enjoy biting into these buns to find that they’re empty-just as Jesus’ tomb was empty on Easter morning.”
Ok, this is just so wrong. I’m not religious but from my point of view nothing shares the depth of passion and commitment you have for Christianity better than giving your kid a sugary, hollow little bun, telling him it’s like the tomb of Christ and Christ was the marshmallow.
Here’s the recipe, direct from a site that should have an inside track.
