Slow Cooker Orange Sweet Rolls

All this week, blog friends, I've got some great recipes that would be perfect for Mother's Day! Today's recipe would be the perfect breakfast recipe to honor our Moms - easy and delicious! Even the kids could help with these.

Ingredients for Sweet Rolls:
· 8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, divided
· ½ cup brown sugar, divided
· 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
· 1/3 cup orange marmalade

Ingredients for Orange Glaze:
· 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
· 1 cup powdered sugar
· Zest and juice of 1 orange

Directions for Sweet Rolls:
1. Stir in 3 tablespoons melted butter and ¼ cup brown sugar into the bottom of the slow cooker.
2. Unroll the crescent roll dough and pinch the seams together. Spread evenly with 5 tablespoons softened butter. Spread the orange marmalade on top of the butter and sprinkle remaining brown sugar on top. Roll the dough tightly into a log and cut into 8 equal pieces, about an inch wide. Place the buns in the slow cooker and cook on high for 1 -2 hours until the bottoms are golden brown.
3. Top with glaze and serve warm.

Directions for Orange Glaze:
1. In a medium bowl, add the melted butter, powdered sugar and zest of 1 orange.
2. Cut the orange in half and squeeze in just enough juice to make the glaze smooth and pour consistency. Stir with a whisk or fork until smooth and combined. If the glaze is too thin, add more powdered sugar. Pour over the top of the sweet rolls.

Note: This recipe can also be cooked in a 350 degree oven; bake for 20 minutes.
