This recipe was given to me by Nancy Eckerty when I was first married. It is very easy to make and smells and tastes delicious! It can be made any time, not just on Christmas morning.

  1. Before going to bed (or by 10pm), sprinkle nuts in a greased bundt pan.
  2. Then put the 24 frozen rolls into the bundt pan.
  3. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and pudding mix together and sprinkle evenly over rolls.
  4. Melt butter and slowly pour over rolls, trying to cover all of the sugar mixture.
  5. Cover pan loosely with foil. Leave on counter overnight. When you get up in the morning, the rolls should have risen.
