Overnight Caramel Rolls

A new year, a new sticky bun recipe!

My sweet mama made these overnight caramel rolls after dinner on December 30th, so we woke up to these sticky, caramel buns on New Year's Eve morning:

This recipe will be my go-to trick for breakfast when we host overnight guests this year!

Overnight Caramel Rolls

Ingredients 1 package of 24 Parkerhouse frozen dinner rolls or equivalent
3.5 oz. pkg Jell-O Cook & Serve Butterscotch pudding mix (not instant)
1/2 - 1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar

The night before serving:
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray
Set the rolls in rows in pan
Sprinkle over rolls: sugar/cinnamon mixture, then nuts, then dry pudding mix
Melt butter and brown sugar in separate pan, then pour over all ingredients
Spray a piece of foil with non-stick spray and place it over the dish, covering the buns.  Leave out over night

In the morning:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Bake (covered with foil) for 30-35 minutes
Wait 5 -10 minutes, then turn over onto a tray
Serve warm

These made for a perfect, indulgent breakfast for the last morning of the year.
