I made this recipe YEARS ago for my daughter’s 8th grade graduation/Confirmation family brunch.  I remembered how much everyone loved them, but honestly — the picture was so not doing them justice.

I decided it was time for a recipe re-boot!

Ice Cream Sticky Rolls An Affair from the Heart

I wanted to make a little something for my in-laws.  They live at the top of the hill from us, and I love to bake for them.  One because it’s always very well received, and two, well, because they just plain deserve it.

I picked up a package of Rhodes Frozen Cinnamon Rolls and threw these together one night before I went to bed.  That morning, they had rolls with their coffee and news paper.

Ice Cream Sticky Rolls Prep

*Note – I forgot to put the pecans in the pan before the rolls.  I ended up adjusting it before they rose.  So the pictures don’t reflect the instructions below exactly.  Just put the pecans in first, then the rolls, then the sauce.



Really quick, while we are on the subject, another favorite sweet roll recipe of mine are these Cherry Limeade Sweet Rolls!  They are not only delicious, they are just so pretty, too!

  1. Oh my, these sound fabulous. I’ve never had self rising cinnamon rolls let alone anything like this. I can’t wait to make these.

  2. I made my own rolls from scratch and used your ice cream/caramel topping….they cooked up hard in the bottom of the pan!!! Don’t know what I did wrong…

  3. These look and smell delicious! However, I can’t for the life of me get the rolls In the middle of the pan to bake through. They stay super doughy I think because of so much liquid that’s been poured on. I’ve tried cooking them 25 extra minutes but still no dice. Any suggestions?
