Easy Orange Rolls ~ Black Licorice Caramels

Orange Rolls remind me of the Christmas Season.  I grew up in Mesa, Arizona where my Uncle owns a Citrus Stand out in the Orange Groves.  We would go out there often to pick up fresh Citrus and if we were lucky they would have Fresh Orange Rolls.

My sister Helen came across this Easy Orange Roll recipe that is so good and just like the Orange Rolls I use to get in Arizona.  I've been making them every winter for years now and want to share it's yummy goodness with you all!

 Easy Orange Roll Recipe

1 bag of frozen Rhodes Rolls (3 lb bag)
zest of 1 orange
1 cube of butter (melted)
2 cups of sugar

2 cups of powdered sugar
4 T. melted butter
6 T. concentrated frozen orange juice (thawed)
milk for thinning the frosting 

Thaw frozen rolls (I just leave them in the bag).  

Melt butter and combine in a bowl with the orange zest.  Taking a roll at a time...make a small rope and tie it in a knot (my kids like to help me with this part).  Dip it in the butter mixture then roll it in the sugar.  Place all rolls on pan and let rise till double.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Mix frosting ingredients with a hand blender.  Thin if needed with milk.  Spread on rolls after they are done baking.

Eat and enjoy!

I shared another recipe last year that is also my favorite for the Holidays, one I got from Helen also.
