Sticky buns are a rich, gooey and delicious sweet roll that appeals to young and old alike, and perhaps especially at breakfast. Preparing them requires some time, however, which is usually in short supply in the morning. Instead, prepare sticky buns when you have the time and store them unbaked in the freezer. Thaw them the night before and be prepared for a hot delicious early morning treat.
Prepare the sticky buns according to your recipe, then set them aside at room temperature to rise.
Slide the risen buns into a large resealable freezer bag. Pull up on the top of the bag so that it does not touch the sticky buns and seal it.
Place the bag into the freezer and freeze it overnight.
After the buns are frozen, open the bag, push out the air and seal the bag tightly around the sticky buns.
Remove the sticky buns from the freezer about 12 hours before you plan to bake them. Open the bag and pull up the top so that it does not touch the sticky buns, then place them in the refrigerator to thaw.
Take the sticky buns out of the refrigerator about 45 minutes before baking and set them on the counter to come to room temperature. Bake the sticky buns as you normally would, serve and enjoy.
