Easy Caramel Sticky Buns

My middle daughter got to have her sleepover this past weekend, after we had to cancel it last weekend due to my kidney stone drama.  My daughter was a little upset with me when I sat out carrots and celery sticks with dip, instead of potato chips.  (However, the girls ate an entire bowl of carrot sticks!)  So, I figured I would redeem myself by serving these the next morning...
They look pretty impressive right?!

Oh.so.easy!  I bought the reduced-fat cinnamon buns and then sorta followed these directions from Pillsbury. I say sort of, b/c I emailed the recipe to myself, it went to my spam folder so I couldn't find it, so then I had to do it from memory b/c I was too lazy to look it up again.  I got the butter and brown sugar quantities right, but not the corn syrup.  Oh well, they didn't need all that corn syrup anyway!  I used 2 t. instead of 2 T.  They still tasted completely fattening yummers.  They were super sweet, buttery and delicious.  Thank goodness they were divided among 5 people.  I also had mandarin oranges to go with it, so I could feel like I was at least giving them a little something healthy to go along with their sugar buzz.  I'm sure their parents were wondering why they couldn't sit still during church.  oopsies.

Easy Caramel Sticky Buns adapted from Pillsbury, inspired by Plain Chicken

1/4
 cup butter or margarine
1/4
 cup packed brown sugar
2
 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4
 cup chopped pecans  *I omitted b/c the girls didn't want   them.  Would be awesome with pecans or walnuts!
1         can reduced-fat cinnamon rolls

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 375°F. In ungreased 8-inch round pan, place 1/4 cup butter; heat in oven 3 to 4 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup until well blended. Sprinkle with pecans.Arrange cinnamon rolls, sides touching, over topping in pan.Bake as directed on roll package or until golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; turn upside down onto heatproof serving plate. Let pan remain 1 minute so caramel can drizzle over rolls. Serve warm. *Optional - drizzle icing from cinnamon roll package over rolls before serving.I'm linking up today with It's a Blog Party, All the Small Stuff, 33 Shades of Green, Blessed with Grace, From Mess Hall to Bistro, iBlog4me, Giggles, Glitz & Glam , Eat at Home - ingredient spotlight canned biscuits/rolls/etc

  7. Those look wonderful. I'd recently looked for a canned sticky bun rolls. I think they used to make them, but I couldn't find any. Never thought to adapt the cinnamon rolls.
