As with all families, our Christmas morning’s agenda is all about opening presents and pulling fun gifts and treats out of stockings. But before that even happens, everyone needs to hold tight until the coffee and hot chocolate drinks are made and, more importantly, that the Chelsea Buns (our Christmas morning tradition) are baked. We nibble on these wonderfully gooey, decadent Chelsea Buns that I have prepared the night and just popped in the oven that morning. They are sooooo easy to make and delicious and serve as Christmas morning breakfast appetizer, a prelude to our “official” Christmas breakfast.
The Chelsea Buns are a once a year treat that is as much anticipated as the opening of the presents.
Here is the recipe:
1 package of 24 frozen rolls
3 tbsp of butter – melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1 small package of cook & serve vanilla pudding mix
Grease bundt pan. Arrange frozen rolls in pan. Pour melted butter over rolls.
Mix the three dry ingredients and sprinkle over rolls.
Place in cold oven overnight. In the morning press down rolls so that they are not overflowing. Turn oven to 350 and bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
Once baked, immediately turn over on a serving plate.
