      These were definitely worth the time it took to make them. DH and I saw an episode of Diners Drive Ins and Dives that featured homemade Caramel Pecan Rolls. We came to to search for a recipe that looked similar and this is what we found. The house smelled fantastic and we enjoyed them for days! We made part of the batch without nuts for the kids and they were good as well!
