These are ooey-gooey delish! It's surprising how big it turns out. I think I got the recipe through Pillsbury. I didn't have pecans so I used walnuts (toasted). I found the directions a little complicated but I set up an assembly line (which took up half the counter). Made the process go a little faster. Once you go through the process, it'll make sense. Be careful when you remove the buns. The syrup is still runny and VERY hot.
