Stupid Easy Homemade Caramel Rolls ~ Fresh, Sticky Caramel Rolls That Are Fool Proof and Easy! Great for Beginners and Seasoned Bakers!
Stay at home Mom’s… how do you do it? Seriously, how do you do it? I don’t know how you get anything accomplished all day long. The day is spent putting out fights, feeding children, keeping them alive, keeping them entertained etc.
I can’t get one moment of productivity out of the entire day I feel!
Today, literally, I had Koert napping. As soon as I put Ry down he woke up. As soon as he went down for another nap I heard Ry crying from her room as I walked to put him down in his crib. I’ve decided I think I could win the lottery quicker than I could coordinate naps most days! When it’s 4:00 pm I quick run around the house like a crazy woman putting it back together and trying to hid the fact that most my day is a hot mess from my husband. If he asks me what I did that day when I gets home, I take it personally and that he thinks I didn’t do anything, give him a glare and say kept his children alive! He swears he’s just asking to see what the kids did and has no hidden meaning in the question. Do I believe him?
And then, we have the days all the stars align. Usually this is the day Miss K is at pre-school so Ry has no one to fight with! Those days I feel like a rock star and want to pat myself on the back. These days, my friends, are far and few between!
These days, I make these delicious Caramel Rolls! After my aunt snuck a caramel roll out for me one day and then Miss K spied it and demanded I make “those sticky things” I decided it was high time I mastered Caramel Rolls.
After a few rounds of testing these babies were born! You guys, if you are scared of Caramel Rolls and Yeast please, please don’t be. Especially with this recipe. YOU CAN MAKE THEM!
Let’s just say I’ve messed this recipe up in a million different ways and they still turn out. They are essentially fool proof I do believe! Let’s see I’ve ran out of half and half and had to use milk before, or coffee cream. I’ve also measured wrong and added not quite enough half and half and they still turned out!
I made a double batch of these and sent them to work for my husband’s birthday and they were devoured. I assure you if you want an easy Caramel Roll recipe this is it!
