Orange You Glad for the Hair of the Dog Pull-Apart Loaf

"A quick and easy treat for unexpected guests!"


2 cans Grands Orange-Flavored Sweet Rolls

1 stick margarine or butter, melted

1 cup granulated sugar

1 small bag Nut Topping (find with other nuts on baking aisle)


2 containers icing (included with the rolls)

2 tbsp rum, brandy, Grand Marnier or a little of each...what have you got left?

Spray a standard loaf pan with non-stick spray. Preheat oven to 350.

Cut each sweet roll into quarters and roll each quarter into a little ball. Dip balls in butter and roll in sugar. Place half of balls in a single layer covering bottom of loaf pan, pressing lightly, and sprinkle with about a tablespoon of Nut Topping. Place remaining balls on top and press lightly. Drizzle with a little of the leftover butter. Bake for 1 hour; cover with foil after 30 minutes. Cool slightly before inverting on a plate.

Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over the top of the loaf. Sprinkle with remaining Nut Topping. Tear-in while sitting alone, lamenting inappropriate and/or obnoxious alcohol-induced behavior previous night or wrap daintily in colored plastic and present to random individual snoring loudly in your bed with a cheerful (but firm), “This makes for great road snacks!” Or both.
