Pecan Sticky Buns

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

This has become a Christmas morning tradition in our home. Great for a potluck or for friends & family brunch when you are expecting a crowd. Prep is done the night before. Your guests will rise to the smell of yummy Sticky Buns in the morning! Simply delicious. The pudding mix is DRY and do NOT substitute flavors. I tried vanilla in a pinch and it simply was yucky! A special thanks to Chief'swife for a great alternate prep plan!

This is Very Good. I did not have the pudding so I did not add it. Still turned out wonderful. I rolled the frozen rolls individually in the melted butter then in the other ingredients that were mixed together, to make sure there was something on everyone of them. Then layered them in my bunt pan. After I rolled them all I sprinkled the remainder of the mix over top.
