I enjoy cooking and baking, and I share some of my family's favorite holiday recipes.

Sticky Gooey Sweet Rolls

This is a very cheap and easy way to doctor up Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls and make them taste much better. We used Grands 5 Flaky Cinnamon Rolls (Flaky Supreme) with cream cheese frosting. You can use any Grands you want, or you can do this with the smaller rolls that have, I think, 8 in the can.

Our kids love them when we have brunch here. We have sticky rolls, eggs, milk gravy, biscuits, sausage, bacon, milk, and orange juice. You can put just about anything on the table for brunch or breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • pancake syrup
  • molasses
  • nuts
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar

Instructions

  1. You can add the ingredients in the dish in any order you want. The pictures below are the order of ingredients I used. For the syrup and molasses, you can put as much as you would like in. I think I use about 1/4 cup of each. About 1/2 cup of nuts. We use a deep dish glass pie pan. It needs to be deep or you will end up with a mess in your oven. It does bubble up. The order I used was syrup, molasses, brown sugar, butter, and then the nuts.
  2. Rolls on the top.
  3. Bake them 23-25 minutes. They have to bake a little longer to make sure they're done. When their done, turn them upside down onto a bigger plate and then add the frosting that they give you in the Grands can. I just drop spoonfuls of frosting onto rolls, it will melt all over rolls.
  4. So good. My brother and his wife visited I made them for breakfast. They really liked the sticky rolls.
  5. The rolls can be made different ways. I sometimes use honey, ice cream Carmel, and different kinds of nuts. Molasses can also be replaced or taken out. I know some people don't like molasses. I have also used up my leftover frosting on the rolls.
  6. They're simple and fast to make.

      They look absolutely delicious though I'd just take a bite because they are so rich in calories.

      Great recipe children would love it.

      Voted up, useful and beautiful. Pinned.

      Someone gave me the recipe for these sticky rolls (monkey bread?) several years ago and I lost it. I don't lose things very often & it really bothered me to have lost this recipe because it is the quick & easy method for making the rolls my mother used to make from scratch. I love quick easy recipes that get a person out of the kitchen fast and good food prepared fast so that we can get on to the gazillion things most of us have to do. So glad you posted this recipe!

      Voted up, AUI, and will share!

      If you keep publishing hubs like this, a crew of fatties, plus myself, will hunt you down and feed you salad for a month in punishment!

      It's awful to be dieting and see this stuff at 500 K's a smell!
