Monkey Bread

My friend Tami gave me this recipe and all the ingredients to make it for Christmas. So I made it and we had it for breakfast Christmas morning. The picture doesn't make it look very good but it's so yummy! It's way easy too, you get it ready the night before then cook it in the morning. I should have taken a picture of some after we took it out of the pan so you could see all the caramelized sauce underneath. This will be a new Christmas tradition. Next time I make it (which will probably be soon) I'll take another picture of it flipped over.
Here's the recipe
Monkey Bread
15 frozen roll dough balls (Rhodes-regular size, not Texas size)
1/2 C. butter
 1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 small pkg. cook-and serve (not instant) butterscotch pudding
1/2 C. nuts (optional)

Grease a bundt pan, I didn't have one so I used my 8X11 1/2 in. baking dish. Place frozen dough balls evenly around inside of the pan. It doesn't look like enough, but it is. Melt the butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, dry butterscotch pudding mix, and nuts together. Mixture will be a little thick. pour or spoon over the frozen dough balls. Place in cold oven and forget about it for 6-8 hours. I put it in the oven around midnight on Christmas Eve. It rises while we sleep. It is ready to bake Christmas morning, turn the oven to 350 and cook for about 25 minutes. It is ready when the rolls look golden brown on the top. Put a plate over the bundt pan. Then very carefully (the goo is hot) and quickly flip it upside down onto the plate. It will come out as one big cinnamon roll. Tear the rolls apart one at a time and enjoy. Makes 8 servings.
