Easy Sticky Buns

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.

Small Batch Sticky Buns are perfect for a breakfast party of two.
Don’t get me wrong, I would totally make this for dessert as well. A big ‘ol sticky bun with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! Ohhh… I can taste it now!
Cinnamon Buns a la Mode! Come to mama!
Ooey Gooey Sticky Buns - from the fridge to your belly in under an hour!

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.

I've always got to get more napkins out when I'm making these quick and easy Sticky Buns!
Add some walnuts or pecans to the mix and you get this amazing nutty, sticky, gooey, breakfast. Oh my! Bring some wet wipes for sticky fingers after.
I know I couldn’t eat this with a fork! It tastes so much better when eaten with your fingers. Lol!
