Mmmm! I love sticky buns! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! However, making the cinnamon buns from scratch are a pain to make. I much prefer to use premade cinnamon rolls (because I’m lazy) but I can totally melt some butter and brown sugar and make this ooey gooey concoction to make my own sticky buns! It’s perfect for lazy mornings.
However, like I said, these are made with canned cinnamon buns. Pick up your favorite at the store, or make some like these and then make the brown sugar goo to go with it.
The brown sugar goo can be made the day before or in the morning if you’ve forgotten. No biggie.
