Downton Abbey Chocolate Sticky Buns

Downton Abbey. So many different foods have been served over the course of the show to royalty, the family, and the staff. I saw this photo of Thomas the other day, and I immediately thought of Chocolate Sticky Buns. They're probably not, but let's go with it. This recipe for Chocolate Sticky Buns is from Pillsbury. Easy and Delicious. We know, however, that Mrs Patmore would have made these from scratch.

Downton Abbey Chocolate Sticky Buns

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup unsalted Butter, softened
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
2 Tbsp sugar
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
1 Tbsp Butter, melted
1/2 cup milk chocolate baking chips

Heat oven to 375°F.
In small bowl, mix brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/4 cup butter. Spread mixture in bottom and up sides of 8 (2 3/4x1 1/4-inch) nonstick muffin cups. Sprinkle each cup with 1 tablespoon pecans.
In another small bowl, mix sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; set aside.
Unroll dough. If using crescent dough, firmly press perforations to seal. Press to form 12x8-inch rectangle. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle with sugar mixture and chocolate chips.
Starting with one short side, roll up tightly; pinch edge to seal. With serrated knife, cut into 8 (1-inch) slices. Place each slice, cut side down, over pecans in muffin cup.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown.
Immediately turn rolls upside down onto serving platter. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.
