READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Nana Lee

Found this while looking for recipes using mango juice. These are really easy as they use frozon bread dough. You can even make them the night before and bake them in the morning.

These turned out nicely. The taste of the butter/caramel sauce is divine!!! Too bad it does not come through as much with all the dough, but still, it is yummy. Next time I might reserve some macadamia nuts to sprinkle on top separately. I will say the mango flavor is not too dominant, but they were loved by old and young alike. Will certainly make again. THANKS!
