This recipe is a big treat, and I often make it at our lake house when we takes guests there. Use the maximum amount of brown sugar listed and all of the pudding package for a sweeter dish. The corn syrup makes it gooey! Make sure you plan ahead - this recipe needs to sit overnight.

The recipe wasn't super clear. Let rise in fridge or countertop? The amount of brown sugar and butter: to taste? It stuck to my pan and I thought it wouldn't come out but using stiff spatulas I was able to coax it out without ruining the whole thing. On the flip side I took it to a neighborhood brunch and everyone loved it. I'll probably keep looking for a better (easier to follow and more foolproof) Monkey Bread recipe. Read More

YUMMY! I cut the rolls into fourths and rolled them in vanilla cook and serve pudding powder. I also used 1/2 butterscotch and 1/2 vanilla pudding. After dissolving the brown sugar in the butter I added the pudding mixture to it. No gritty crunch from the sugar. Everything melted and blended together beautifully. So good! Read More

This was pretty good. I halved the recipe and baked it in a loaf pan. When making this recipe I would put some of the pecans on the bottom of the pan before putting in the frozen rolls. Read More

A new family favorite. Make sure to use a Bundt pan (not a tube pan with removable bottom). Learned this the hard way... thank goodness for self-cleaning ovens! If you don't have the cook 'n serve pudding you can use instant but mix it in with the butter/brown sugar mix. Found the instant didn't "dissolve" if just sprinkled over. Thanks for this great recipe. Read More

I left out the corn syrup and it was still delicious. It does rise quite a bit so I would recommend placing foil over the top then a cookie sheet and something heavy to keep it all in. Make sure you let it set after removing from the oven to let all the juices cool to a syrup and soak into the bread. Read More

This recipe is very good especially with the addition of the corn syrup. My frozen rolls were unfortunately sitting in the freezer for a year (i know shame on me) and they didn't rise much in the fridge so before I went to bed i left them on the counter to sit covered overnite and they rose much more. Will make again with fresh frozen roll dough that btw i cut into four before putting in pan and also I layered the rolls then butter/br sug pudding mix wh. sugar & cinnamon syrup then repeat. Delicious and gooey! Read More
