Sticky Cinnamon Buns

On the latest installment of 'What Leftovers Are Jessica Eating Today,' we've got a pack of cinnamon rolls hiding inside of the refrigerator. I tossed the cheap water-down frosting that came with it and made something far more delicious.

I wanted a sticky glaze to go on the cinnamon rolls before baking them. I created a classic gooey caramelized topping with just a few sprinkles of chopped pecans. And since you guys know I'm all about that sensory experience, enjoy them with a steaming cup of coffee or tea for the ultimate sensory experience.

I hope you guys enjoy this one!

Vibe: The perfect song to pair with this recipe is "It's a Vibe" by 2 Chainz because its smooth vibes perfectly complement the indulgent and comforting nature of these sticky cinnamon buns. The laid-back rhythm of the song mirrors the cozy atmosphere of baking, making it the ideal soundtrack for enjoying these delicious treats.



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pinch of salt



1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

2. Once the butter is melted, add the brown sugar, honey or maple syrup, heavy cream or milk, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.

3. Stir the mixture continuously until the sugar has dissolved and the ingredients are well combined. Allow the mixture to come to a gentle boil.

4. Reduce the heat to low and let the glaze simmer for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally. The glaze should thicken slightly.

5. Remove the glaze from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes. It should be thick but still pourable.

6. Pour the warm glaze over your arranged cinnamon rolls in the baking dish, making sure to coat them evenly.

7. Proceed to bake your cinnamon rolls according to your recipe's instructions. As they bake, the glaze will bubble and caramelize, creating that sticky, gooey topping characteristic of sticky buns.

8. Once baked, allow the sticky buns to cool in the pan for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy the warm, caramelized goodness!
