Overnight Sticky Buns - Perfect for a Special Breakfast

Need an idea for a special breakfast?  Have overnight company and really want to wow them?  Try these Overnight Sticky Buns and you're guaranteed to get rave reviews from your family and guests.

1 pkg (16 oz - 12 rolls) frozen dinner rolls, thawed according to package directions
1/4 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp light corn syrup
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/4 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp Pampered Chef Korintje Cinnamon

Let thawed dough rise at room temperature for 2 hours or until doubled in size.  In small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup melted butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup.  Spread into a 9 x 13" pan.  Sprinkle with pecans; set aside.  Place remaining 1/4 cup melted butter in shallow dish.  In small bowl, combine granulated sugar and Korintje Cinnamon.  Stretch each ball of dough into a 10" rope.  Dip in butter; coat with cinnamon-sugar.  Roll dough into spiral and arrange in pan.  Cover pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.  Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 for 18 - 20 minutes.  Let stand for 5 minutes before inverting onto serving platter.

Now for a couple of Karan's Kitchen Tips:

1.  I like to double this recipe and use my Pampered Chef Rectangular Baker  for baking.
2.  I use more butter and cinnamon sugar in the latter part of the recipe.
3.  Don't try to invert your pan - the gooey stuff runs all over the place.  The first time I made these I literally had sticky stuff all over my countertops and down the front of my lower cabinets.  My very compassionate and always supportive hubby grabbed the video camera instead of trying to help me stop the gooey sticky mess from running all over.  It's funny now, but it certainly was not funny then!
4.  Simply lift the sticky buns out of your baking dish with a spatula and place them on your serving plate.  Then pour the rest of the wonderful sticky gooey stuff over the top of your sticky buns.
5.  This is really good served with bacon or sausage and scrambled eggs.  Don't forget a large glass of orange juice.
