Amazing Monkey Bread

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"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."

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...

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.
