Overnight Sticky Buns

Delicious, easy and totally make-ahead. Perfect for Christmas morning. The recipe is setup to be prepped the night before and then baked in the morning.

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 servings


  • 1 package frozen rolls about 25 rolls
  • 1 4.5 oz package vanilla pudding NOT INSTANT
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C pecans chopped
  • 1/2 C butter melted


  • The night before eating, butter a bundt pan really well (get into all those nooks and crannies) and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine dry pudding mix with brown sugar and pecans. 
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. 
  • Add 20-25 frozen rolls to your buttered bundt pan. (Don't overfill, they rise A LOT.) Pour melted butter all over and the sprinkle the entire dry mixture over that. 
  • Leave in out overnight, the dough rises by morning. 
  • In the morning, preheat oven to 350°. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the rolls on top are well done. I place a cookie sheet underneath to catch any pecans or sugar that might fall out. 
  • Once slightly cooled, invert onto a serving plate. ENJOY!


I always leave mine in for 35 minutes so the rolls on the inside are not doughy. It all depends on your oven, but don't undercook!
