Delicious, quick treat for breakfast or brunch. Served by my wonderful neighbor, Jane, when she'd have us over to Tea.

I surprisingly had all the ingredients for this in my fridge. Like another cook, I increased the butter, nuts and brown sugar. I'm glad I did, or they would have been too dry. Leftovers are fairly dry, so microwave on low with wet paper towel. The butter from the bread, sweetness from the sugar and salt from the nuts was such a fun combination.

LOVE these - I am a complete fool for the caramel soooo I do 3/4 cup butter and nuts, 1 1/4 cups brown sugar and 1 1/2 T water that makes them extra gooey!

Fabulous! I used candied pecans and cut the recipe in half since I only had one can of crescent rolls. Thanks for a great recipe, Elissa!
