This Nutty Rum Pull Apart is a deliciously fun recipe to make! Over atJasey's Crazy Daisy, we love sticky buns and these are no exception! Everyone loved the smooth creamy rummy caramel so much! You might have noticed that the nuts are missing from my photo (gasp!), but it was certainly very tasty still! We have a nut allergy in my family and so I opted to leave them out, which you can too, but I can imagine the pecans called for in the original recipe make this extra scrumptious! This would a great dish to serve for brunch, which happens to be one of my favorite meals to celebrate with. Christmas, Mother's Day, and Easter are my favorite brunch celebrations. What are yours? What I love most about this recipe is that while it is totally worthy of serving for a special occasion, it is easy enough to whip up nearly anytime you want to treat your family. Let's check out how to make this pull apart recipe.

First, you're going to want to set out two dozen frozen rolls to thaw just until soft.

When they are soft, you'll stir together a little cinnamon and sugar. Nutty Rum Pull Apart

Cut each roll into 4 pieces, dip them in the cinnamon sugar, and plop them into a bundt pan that's been sprayed with cooking spray. If you are using nuts, you'll sprinkle half of then into the bottom of the pan first.

When you've used half of the rolls, sprinkle them with the other half of the nuts, and continue with the rest of the rolls.

Cover loosely with sprayed foil and let raise until dough has just reached the top of the pan.

If yours raises over above top, like mine did, i recommend placing a baking sheet under the rolls as they bake to catch any overflow - just in case! Bake for about 30-35 minutes, covering loosely with foil for the last 10 minutes to keep from over browning if needed.Don't these look amazing? Mmmmmm!Nutty Rum Pull Apart
