  • 16 ounces crescent rolls 2 cans of sheets
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed

Caramel Frosting

  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Roll crescent roll sheets onto parchment paper. Brush with butter.
  • Sprinkle with brown sugar.
  • Roll each sheet into a log, slice into 12 pieces (each).
  • Place in a buttered baking dish. Bake 26-28 minutes.
  • Combine butter, sugar, milk, vanilla, salt and powdered sugar until smooth. Pour on top of caramel rolls.


  • Butter your baking dish before adding the rolls to it, so that once baked they are easy to remove and won't stick.
  • You can bake these rolls ahead of time and keep them covered in the fridge. Gently reheat them in the oven and spread over the frosting before serving.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and kept in the fridge for 3 days. They can be eaten cold or warm them in the oven or microwave.
  • For a thinner icing, add a little extra milk when mixing the frosting.
  • Optional: You can top these with nuts, toffee bits or chocolate chips
