Scrumptious Caramel Pecan/Walnut Cinnamon Rolls

Pecans and walnuts combine to make these delicious nutty cinnamon rolls. Making them is easy starting with frozen bread dough from the supermarket.

 Caramel Pecan/Walnut Cinnamon Rolls

My husband loves cinnamon rolls (and I’m starting to love them myself) so I have been searching around for something a bit different and trying some variations.

I came across a recipe for caramel pecan rolls and I thought they looked really good. I decided to change the recipe up a bit and I think they turned out so good!


I used pecans and walnuts for a change, and I have to say I was very pleased! Nuts in baked good really kick them up a notch.

To make it a bit easier I used frozen bread dough that I bought at the store. This saved me a bit of time so I didn’t have to make the dough!

Enjoy them hot, or save for a later time. They taste great if you nuke them in the microwave right before eating!  

I hope you all enjoy these, I was very impressed with them! The flavor was great and for not loving cinnamon rolls I have to say I kinda loved these! The sweetness with the crunch of the nuts make them scrumptious to the last bite! 

You are also welcome to skip out on both pecan and/or walnuts. Feel free to use just one, if you don’t want to mix them both, or you don’t have them both on hand! I thought it added a nice flavor having both, but it is not something you have to do!

Yield: 6 servings

Scrumptious Caramel Pecan/Walnut Cinnamon Rolls

Caramel Pecan/Walnut Cinnamon Rolls
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 1 Frozen Bread Dough (allow to rise)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. corn syrup
  • 1/2 pecans
  • 1/2 walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Allow your bread to rise. I just used a frozen loaf of bread I bought in the freezer section. This made it pretty easy, so I didn't have to mess with making dough!
  2. Then in a bowl mix your melted butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, pecans, and walnuts. Then put them in a greased cake pan. Make sure to spread them out, it will look kind of splotchy but it will be enough once it cooks!
  3. Next take the bread that has raised, and flatten it! You can do this by putting some flour on the counter for dusting and roll out the dough till it is flat and is is shaped close to a 15X9 inch rectangle.
  4. Mix the white sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Take that and sprinkle over the flattened bread. I then slowly rolled up the dough with the mixture on it, like you would for a cinnamon roll.
  5. Cut the dough into thin layers and place on top of the nut mixture in pan. Once you place them all in your pan cover with a towel and allow it to rise for about an hour.
  6. Turn oven to 375 degree's and bake for around 20-25 minutes. This will depend on your area and elevation and humidity. Once they are golden brown, you can take them out.
  7. Here is the tricky part, you want to then flip your pan over on a cookie sheet or another cake pan so that the nut part will be on top. I used another cake pan but it is whatever you want. I let it cool for about 5 minutes first then I flipped them.

    If you want a super easy recipe just use pre-made cinnamon rolls like Pillsbury grand and make your caramel sauce with butter and brown sugar and put it in the greased pan then the pecans then the rolls on top! I tried this with orange rolls for Christmas oh my gosh! And then to be totally decadent I gently nuked the icing that came with and put that on the top but it was Christmas after all! Happy baking everyone!
