Easy Pecan Caramel Rolls

A New Addition to the Family


Easy Pecan Caramel Rolls

I hope you all had a nice weekend. Did yours go by as quickly as mine did? We had a nice a nice weekend. We went to visit my mother and stepfather to meet their new rescued puppy. Here he is (his name is Clyde). Isn’t he precious!?!?

Look at those eyes!!!

My mother and stepfather always watch our fur baby when we go on vacation, so we thought it would be a good idea to have the dogs meet. Let me first start by saying they both have the same personalities (each one likes to be in charge, they love to snuggle, and they both are fearful of many things). This made for a very interesting doggie meet (to say the least). They had some issues when they first met, but as the weekend went on, they seemed to get along for the most part.

In honor of the weekend with my mom, I am posting a delicious recipe that is a staple when we go there to visit. Now, this is definitely not a healthy recipe, but it is great for a “free day”. I typically have 1 free day a week. These are great for a brunch (or even a dessert). The added bonus is that they are so incredibly easy to make. Okay, brace yourself theses are a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Here are the ingredients you’ll need for approx. 12 servings:


  • oil for coating Bundt pan
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 package frozen dinner rolls (I used frozen round Parker rolls in bag)
  • ½ cup melted margarine
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 3 oz. package vanilla pudding (not the instant kind)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Grease Bundt pan.


Put nuts on the bottom.


Break apart rolls and place in pan.


Combine and stir melted margarine, brown sugar, vanilla pudding, and cinnamon.


Pour mixture on top of rolls. Cover and let sit overnight.


When you wake up, the rolls should look like this.


Remove plastic wrap and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Enjoy!



Nutrition information: 1 serving has approximately 300 calories. Because these are not considered healthy, I would not recommend eating these every day (they can be habit forming).  Smile
