I look forward to Christmas every year just for these these Sticky Buns. They have been a family tradition ever since I can remember. My mother in law introduced me to them and then I instantly was hooked! You really can’t stop eating them!
This is a recipe everyone must have! I can’t even describe how good the glaze is over these. An gooey gooey caramel like finger licking good glaze! How is that for a description? The best part about these Sticky Buns is that you can take them out and put them together in about 5 minutes the night before! Then you put them in the oven while opening presents. Then you have warm gooey gooey rolls that fill the house with the most amazing smell.

  2. Sprinkle 1/2 package Jello Butterscotch cook and serve on top. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top.
  3. Melt the butter and mix with the brown sugar. Drizzle over rolls.
  4. Cover with a damp cloth and raise overnight. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Cook for about 10 minutes and then cover with aluminum foil. The top browns fast! The aluminum foil will help them to cook throughout and not brown the top quite as fast. But cook for the whole time or else the rolls on the bottom will be doughy!

  1. Thanks for your great post featuring Rhodes! Feel free to call our customer satisfaction line for a coupon. 1-800-876-7333. Thanks! from the Rhodes Social Media Manager.

  2. Looks delicious! On step 4, you noted to bake for 25 minutes, then the next sentence you note to cook for an additional 10. Does this mean bake an additional 10 minutes?

    1. Sorry! I should clarify that. The cook time total is 25 minutes. I put them in the oven for 10 minutes and then cover the top with foil for the last 15 minutes so the top doesn’t brown quite as fast and it gets cooked throughout.

  3. I’ve had this recipe since 1980. It was called 10 O’Clock Rolls then. So easy, delicious and impressive to make for company. 5 Stars

  4. I’ve made this recipe for Christmas for a decade now. We love it! I like to slightly defrost the rolls enough to chop them into fourths so they all get super gooey. Mm can’t wait for Christmas!

      1. It must be a Canadian thing, but we always add raisins to things like this. Cinnamon buns, sticky buns etc. I you like raisin, try adding some. I thing you’ll love it!!

  5. I’m excited to try these. What’s the best way to serve them? Right out of the pan or do you flip them onto a serving tray?

  6. I made these for Christmas morning. Everyone loved them. So simple and yet tasted delicious. I added more cinnamon as it is a favorite flavor of ours. They are all gone now, and my husband has requested more. YUMMY!
