Ingredients
  • 1/2 34 1/2 ounce package 
    frozen cinnamon sweet roll dough or frozen orange sweet roll dough (6 rolls)
  • 1/3  cup 
    chopped pecans
  • 1/4  cup 
    butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2  cup 
    sugar
  • 1/4  cup 
    caramel-flavored ice cream topping
  • 1   tablespoon 
    maple-flavored syrup
  •  
Directions
1.
Place frozen rolls about 2 inches apart on a large greased baking sheet. (Discard frosting packets or reserve for another use.) Cover rolls with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight to let dough thaw and begin to rise.
2.
Preheat oven to 350F. Generously grease twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups. Divide pecans evenly among muffin cups; set aside.
3.
Cut each roll into four pieces. Dip each roll piece in melted butter, then roll in sugar. Place two dough pieces into each prepared muffin cup. Drizzle rolls with any remaining melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar. In a small bowl stir together ice cream topping and syrup; drizzle over rolls.
4.
Bake in the preheated oven about 20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 1 minute. Invert onto a larger platter. Cool slightly. Serve warm. Makes 12 rolls.
