The BEST Mini Caramel Rolls!
Don’t get me wrong, I love to bake from scratch but lately, there seems to be ten million things going on every day and if I waited for a few free hours to make rolls from scratch I would probably be waiting forever. I live in reality land and our reality is that we gotta eat but we can’t spend hours getting meals on the table.
Enter these Mini Caramel Rolls! These sweet little gems are so, so easy to make. Seriously, if you have a can of crescent roll dough and a few pantry ingredients you can serve these caramel rolls in about 30 minutes. I know what you’re thinking: Hot baked sweet rolls in 30 minutes? Yes, please!
We make these Mini Caramel rolls during the summer at the cabin with my Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole. We make them as a special breakfast treat for back-to-school with some Ham and Cheese Egg Muffins. We make these for holiday celebrations along with Cheddar and Ham Quiche Cups. We make… okay, you probably get it by now – we make these a lot! And you will, too, after you see how super easy they are to make.
What I love best about these Caramel Rolls – besides the sticky-sweet caramel sauce – is that they’re small. I love a giant sweet roll, but sometimes it’s a little too much sweet. These Mini Caramel Rolls have all the sweet goodness, but they’re bite-sized.
My kids love them because they’re mini and I like them because I don’t feel like I’m over-indulging. Mini-sized just means you can eat more, right?

How do I make Mini Caramel Rolls?
Caramel Sauce – Combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and milk in a saucepan and stir it over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the sauce into a 9-inch pie pan.
Prepare Rolls – Divide the crescent roll dough into four rectangles. Just press together the seems you aren’t using for the little triangles! Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over each rectangle and then roll each one up, jelly roll-style starting with the long side of the rectangle. Slice each roll into nine pieces and place each piece, cut-side down, in the pan on top of the caramel sauce.
Bake – Pop the rolls into the oven for 15 to 18 minutes at 375°F.
Cool – Let the rolls cool for about a minute in the pan before turning them out onto a serving platter. The sweet caramel sauce will be on top and underneath will be the flaky and puffy rolls. I promise they won’t last long!

Can I add nuts to my caramel rolls?
Yes, you can add nuts! You can finely chop some nuts and sprinkle them over the dough before you roll it up. Or, after you pour the sauce in the pie pan you can sprinkle some chopped nuts over the top. Or, do both if you really love nuts! Chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds would work great.
How do I store leftover Mini Caramel Rolls?
You can store them at room temperature tightly covered and they should be fine for a day or two. Or, keep the leftover rolls in the refrigerator a few days longer and warm them up in the microwave. Gonna be honest here, though, you probably won’t have leftovers! We never do because everyone loves them and they tend to disappear quick!
