I LOVED this recipe the first time I tried it, but I've made it even easier... I don't see the need to dip each individual ball. I mixed all ingredients for the "goo" including the butter and corn syrup, then I formed all the balls and gently folded them into the goo, just until coated, dumped into the pan, DONE! It's just as good! Try it!

These were quick and yummy, but...we all sat down to eat them while they were warm and then as they started to cool, hardened caramel literally started forming between our teeth as we chewed! Not sure why this happened, I've made sticky buns and monkey breads plenty of times before and never had this problem. Will stick with other recipes.

My family goes GAH-GAH over these sticky buns. When my children know I'm baking these, they run to get their friends. My husband doesn't want to share! I have to double the recipe and bake in a bundt pan. It really looks impressive too when turned out on a plate. It looks like you spent hours on it, but it is sooooo easy.(DON'T try tripling it though. It won't get baked through without the outside getting way too dark.)I also increase the cinnamon by 1/2 tsp, the margarine by 1 Tbsp, the brown sugar by 2 Tbsp, and the pecans by 1/4 cup. Otherwise, the topping is too scant for our taste. If you use the extra large biscuits, you'll need to cut them into thirds, and I wouldn't recommend using the large biscuits for both cans (when doubling). It's just too much dough. For my oven, I have to reduce the heat to 415-425 so the outside doesn't over bake before the inside is done. This is a favorite we'll be baking for many years to come!

I lowered my oven temp. to 425 and baked about 12 minutes. The buns were both soft on the outside and inside. Delicious!

I used two cans of biscuits in a round pan. These were fast and delicious. I drizzled with maple syrup instead of corn syrup. Thanks for a great recipe!

Very good. Great recipe for someone who really doesn't have a ton of time to make these from scratch. Thanks for a quick, easy, and sweet treat.
