Candice's Sticky Bun Bites

Christmas Eve I decided to make my sisters recipe for Sticky Bun Bites, however, I put them in a bundt pan to make it more festive. It was delicious! We will be doing this every Christmas Eve. We enjoyed these tasty treats while watching A Christmas Carol. (I only made half the recipe.)

Candice’s Sticky Bun Bites
12 Rhodes rolls, microwave thaw for 1 min. 15 sec. (turn halfway through), cut into 48 pieces
6 Tbsp. butter, melted
¾ c. brown sugar, unpacked
2 tsp. cinnamon
Melt butter, set aside. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
Prepare caramel sauce.
Caramel Sauce:
1 c. brown sugar, packed
½ c. butter
¼ c. Karo syrup
1 c. pecans, chopped (optional)
Bring sugar and butter to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and add Karo syrup. Pour into an ungreased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle on pecans. Set aside.
Dip each piece of roll dough in melted butter and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place in baking dish on top of caramel. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter and let sit for a minute to let the caramel sauce drip over rolls. Serve warm.
