Overnight Caramel Sticky Buns! They are so amazing, and so easy, and they really are the perfect breakfast treat to serve for Easter brunch! I have many childhood memories of mornings my family shared these sticky buns when my mom treated us with something extra special! We could never resist the taste of these fresh baked rolls especially because they are dripping with rich sweet gooey caramel! Now, I love to make them as well, and a recipe like this is perfect for those times when you want to treat your family without fussing in the kitchen. Even though these sticky buns taste as if you spent hours kneading dough, and the caramel drizzle is ridiculously good, they are so very easy! Let’s just face it, sometimes the cook has more important things to do than slaving over sweetbread dough, especially, when no one will notice or even care that these babies landed in the middle of the table instead. I Promise! Besides, there has to be time for hunting for Easter eggs, right? I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss out on any of the holiday fun, and I don’t have to with recipes as amazing as this one! Trust me, surprise your family with these Easter morning and they will love you forever!
First spray your favorite bundt pan with cooking spray, you can also use a tube pan (angel food cake pan). Place 18 Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls in the pan like so.
Sprinkle them with half a package (1/4 cup if you are measuring) of Cook & Serve Butterscotch Pudding.
Next, melt a little brown sugar and butter together and bring to a boil.
Over medium heat, melt your butter and brown sugar together until it comes to a rolling boil. The ingredients will combine together into a slightly thicker sauce that doesn't separate. it might even look a little foamy. Take the mixture off of the heat being careful because the hot mixture may sputter and spit. Stir until mixed well and pour over rolls. You'll want to forgo the microwave like I did in the above picture and actually make your caramel sauce in a saucepan on the stove top. You will get better results this way. Trust me, do as I say, not as I do!!!
Cover loosely with foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray, and set aside to raise. I like to keep them safe and sound in the oven overnight. In the morning, or after the rolls and thawed and raised, bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert rolls onto a large serving platter and enjoy.
Doubling this recipe works out great! One package of rolls contains enough for two batches so you won't have to worry about the other half of the pudding mix dusting your cupboards. I usually make one pan with nuts and one without. That way everyone is happy! My family always feels extra special when I make these for them! What is your family's favorite breakfast treat?
