Easy Saturday Morning Crescent Caramel Rolls

"These take very little time and can easily be doubled. To make things really easy purchase the 2-ounce cups of caramel apple dip in you grocery store, or make your own! but only use 1/4 cup for a 9 or 10-inch cake pan."

    When I was making another recipe, recipe#156790, I realized I forgot to review this one! I made these for our Memorial Day family reunion, and they were a HUGE hit! My only change was to roll them up from the long side, and cut them into bite sized mini rolls, place on a baking sheet, then drizzle the caramel apple topping from a tip cut in a sandwich bag across the top. They were pretty and delicious! I made half with pecans, half with no nuts. They were a big hit and a real make again! I baked them at 375 for about 14 minutes and they were perfect. Thanks for another winner Kitten!

    These were easy enough. I made them for my husband before work. However, They didn't "Look" like I expected. The crescents didn't appear done enough...they were doughy. I don't know what I could have done, possibly cook longer, but they started to get very dark on the top and I didn't want them burnt.

    These were very good and my family devoured these in no time! I did omit the nuts because my one son doesn't care for them, but I will make these again soon with them. They are so very easy when you want something sweet to eat!

    These are super easy and make a great breakfast treat. I didn't have the caramel apple dip and substituted caramel ice cream topping which worked fine. I did sprinkle some pecans over the caramel before placing the rolls on top. They were done in the time specified and were quickly devoured.
