Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

Yea! Another food post. For those of you that have tried my cinnamon roll recipe, you'll fall in love with this one. It's better than the cinnamon rolls, easier and faster to make!

Use all the ingredients in the roll recipe minus the hot roll mix. The dough for these is Rhodes frozen rolls! Take out a bunch (I used 28 and used a bread pan,) and thaw just long enough to be able to cut into fourths but not completely thawed. You'll have to get your hands dirty, but that's all part of the fun. Grab a 1/4 stick of butter and rub it all over the pieces then get more butter and coat some more, do this until you've used the entire stick.

Next sprinkle with cinnamon, brown sugar and nuts (click here to view original cinnamon roll recipe), then roll around to coat all the pieces. Next put in a pan with tall sides and pour the caramel mixture (from roll recipe) over the dough. Pop it into the oven and cook until golden brown (not sure the time on this, I forgot to watch the clock, just make sure the center is cooked through!) Let cool about 20 min. and cover with icing (again from the roll recipe.)
