Absolutley delicious! Very simple to assemble and lovely presentation.

I either assemble everything before bed and let sit overnight, or assemble in the morning for the times we will be having breakfast for dinner.

1 (16 ounce) package frozen bread rolls, still frozen (I use Bridgeford's Parker House Yeast Roll Dough)
1 stick (4oz.) butter
1 (3 5/8 ounce) package butterscotch pudding mix
1 cup brown sugar
Chopped nuts, (optional)

Spray a bundt pan with non-stick spray. Sprinkle bottom of pan with chopped nuts if desired. Place rolls individually in pan. Melt butter and pour over rolls. Mix the dry pudding mix and brown sugar together. Pour this mixture over the frozen rolls and melted butter. Let the rolls rise overnight on countertop or cold (turned off) oven. This is necessary as the frozen rolls will need several hours to defrost and rise. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 C) for 20 minutes. When done, remove from oven and let sit 10 minutes. Invert onto serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 8 rolls.

*Variation: You may use 1 1/4 cups melted butter, vanilla pudding mix, 4 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup chopped nuts.

I think this recipe is going to be a favorite once it's tweaked a bit. I found that it is indeed a good idea to combine all ingredients (into the melted butter) or it will separate. Also, do it in layers. Part of the goo on the bottom, a layer of rolls, more goo, final layer of rolls, final goo. And bake at 350 at least. Also, if Bridgford Parker house rolls are tough to find, 1.5 loaves cut up after thawing for an hour or so works well. Thanks for a great recipe!

My family has been enjoying this recipe for over 25 years. I have modified it by using two packages of butterscotch pudding. I find this makes more of the delicious gooey sause, and does not dry out the rolls as is the case with just one package. I mix the pudding, sugar and nuts together, and pour the mixture over the rolls. I give it one quick shake to distribute the dry mixture. I then dot with the stick of butter. During rising, ingredients distribute, and butter melts during baking, so melting ahead of time is unnecessary. I also bake at 300 degrees for 30 min.

I actually found this recipe on another site, and have made them several times. My family has renamed them "Sin Rolls" because they are so dangerously delicious!!! To make this over-the-top, I serve a cream cheese icing on the side. Too good for words!!!

These are absolutely delicious and one of my favorites!! I do have a problem with my sugar hardening in clumps. Any suggestions? -- I make double batches of this recipe but would like to perfect them. Thanks!
