You may not want to make these....

I found a recipe for Caramel Pecan Buns on I made them last Sunday.




The recipe is super easy and the results really are amazing. Hubby agreed. You can go to the link above for the recipe, but for those lazy like me, here it is.

Caramel Pecan Buns

1 can (17.5 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons water

1. Bake cinnamon rolls as directed on package.

2. To caramelize pecans, melt butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat; add pecans. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until butter just starts to brown. Pecans can burn easily, so don't walk away from the stove. Add brown sugar and water. Cook, stirring constantly, until the brown sugar melts and bubbles, about 2 minutes. Spoon over buns while they are hot out of the oven.

3. Remove cover from icing; microwave on Medium (50%) 5 to 10 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm buns. Serve warm.

I made these using regular cinnamon rolls, not the Grands. One cup of pecans probably was too much when using the regular size but we didn't complain. LOL! I will be trying with the Grands next time.

You can also find the nutritional info at the link above, but if you are really worried about the fat/calories in these, you do not want to make them. LOL!

Trust me, once you make them, you will make them again!

Can you believe that Shane doesn't like anything even remotely caramel?

Guess that means I'll get all of these to myself. :)

Annie Jones, if you like caramel and pecans, you will love these!

Only get addicted to them if you have a good source for pecans! LOL!

My source was Kroger when they had 1 lb bags of shelle pecans for $3.99. I bought 5 bags and froze them. LOL!

Frances said...

No, SonyaAnn, I am not gonna ask about your diet. LOL! I am not worried about you eating them all. Your family will help out!

Frances said...

Marilyn, if you want to come all the way to Texas to eat them, come on down. LOL!

SonyaAnn said...

Why do I have to share with them? I like me more than I like them!

Kelly L said...

Oh my - I am soooo making these.. There goes the diet! thanks and yummy

love to you

Frances said...

SonyaAnn, you are SO bad! Just make 2 pans and hide one. Then your family will think you are sharing, but you are still being stingy. LOL!

Frances said...

Kelly, they really are delish! When you make them, try not to think about dieting. I didn't.

OOhhhhhh!!!! I need to lose weight, so I'm sticking this in the "what to eat when I reach my goal" folder!

Frances said...

McVal, do not eat this after you lose weight! It will bring it all back. LOL!
