This recipe is so sinful and so desired in my house. I have to be careful when I make it or my fiancé will go into a sugar coma. This sweet and savory sticky bun has all the sweetness you can image. These buns are so soft, gooey, and truly addictive!

This mouth-watering dish came up one night when I was craving something sweet. I wanted a Honey Bun but didn’t want to make a trip to the store. Frustrated that there wasn’t any available in the home, I went on Pinterest to find a Honey Bun recipe. Imagine my surprise I didn’t find it of course! Little Debbie probably has the patent on it and does not want to share it with the world.

I see you, Little Debbie. *side eye*

But I came across a classic Sticky Bun recipe and decided it needs some jushing! I tried fun things with the sticky sauce by adding some butter that is under the influence. Using some Sweet Honey Bourbon and other fun and exciting ingredients to the recipe to make it a KaeLouz original.

Enjoy these sweet, savory, and a little boozy Stick Buns.
