Anytime you mix brown sugar and butter and cook it, you’ll get a caramel sauce. The good thing about this one is you don’t have to stand over the stove stirring. This is a self-made sauce that bakes as the pastry bakes. When you flip over the cinnamon rolls onto a serving dish, the caramel sauce sinks down into each hole and hollow filling it with caramel goodness.
