  • Roll out 1 thawed loaf into a large rectangle. Brush half of the melted butter evenly over dough. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture over butter. Roll up dough into a log starting with the long edge closest to you. Cut log into 1-inch slices with a sharp serrated knife. Arrange slices cut-side up in an ungreased 9x13-inch baking pan.

  • Repeat step 2 with second thawed loaf.

  • Combine brown sugar, vanilla ice cream, and 1/2 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir until melted and well-blended, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour caramel mixture over rolls in the baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate until rolls double, 8 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can also use a long strand of thread to cut the logs into slices.

These caramel rolls are the best I've ever had. I've probably made them 5 times in the past 2 months. They taste so delicious and are very easy to make. I've always preferred caramel rolls as opposed to cinnamon rolls, and this recipe really is the best I've found!! Read More

These were ok guess I am more of an icing fan than caramel on rolls. I do love caramel but they didn't ring my bell. Maybe it was the frozen bread thing there is a big difference. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Loved these! I didn't let sit overnight but baked rafter a few minutes. I used homemade vanilla ice cream and I think that set the flavor over the top. I will be making these again. Read More

This recipe was really good and easy to make. The rolls were moist and full of flavor. The change I made was not to add all the caramel mixture at once I saved half of it and spread it on top of the rolls just after I baked them the result was a fantastic glazing. I left the rolls in the fridge for a day and a half. We really enjoyed having them with a nice cappuccino. Read More

the problem I had was the ice cream melted in the oven while they baked. Read More

These were ok. I think putting the caramel on the night before might not be the best idea. Maybe adding it right before putting it in the oven. But overall this did come out decent. Read More
