How to make OOEEY GOOEY cinnamon rolls!

5 Jan

Before I even start this post I want you to say 2 things!
1–Did you notice the new “banner”? Dan and one of the “creative digital” people that Dan works with designed it. That was one of my Christmas presents! Isn’t it super cute? I didn’t know how easy it would be to change it but I literally just did it in like 5 seconds! 🙂 Thanks Dan I love it!
2–These cinnamon rolls should be made for a special occasion. I usually make them either for Christmas or New years and then put the recipe away until the next year. 🙂

I actually made them twice. Once in Newport (did not turn out great) and then for New Years day (which turned out great).

At Christmas my mom and sister-in-law did all the shopping before we got there. They couldn’t find the Rhodes rolls and there was only instant pudding mix so 2 problems right there! Then the rolls didn’t rise so there was problem 3. They were still good but NOT awesome!

We were at the grocery store picking up a few things on Tuesday night and I saw the Rhodes rolls. I thought its a sign so I made them again!! 🙂 Really wouldn’t you do that also??

I got this recipe (I think) the first time I was away from home for Thanksgiving. My first 7 Thanksgivings in Oregon I went with my friend Tracy to her family’s Thanksgiving. Trudy (Tracy’s mom) made these for us a couple of years for breakfast. It was love at first bite!

They are super easy and here is how you do it!

To Die For Sticky Buns


What you need:
16 Rhodes dinner rolls (freezer section)
1 package butterscotch pudding, reg (NOT instant)
3/4 C butter, melted
3/4 C brown sugar
4 Tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 C nuts, chopped (Trudy uses pecans. I have used almonds and walnuts)

Put it together:
In a bundt pan–spray with non-stick spray–place frozen rolls around pan.
Sprinkle pudding mix and half of the cinnamon.
Mix melted butter and sugar until sugar is melted.
Pour over rolls. Top with the rest of the cinnamon & nuts.
Cover with a towel and let them rise over night!

This is what they look like after they have risen!

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes –cover with aluminum foil.
Let stand for 5 minutes, invert over large plate, and serve warm!

    Oh yum! It’s a good thing that I don’t have these ingredients in my house because we’d be living on them all weekend. YUM AGAIN!
