How to Make Pecan Monkey Bread


  • 1Gather ingredients.

    Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Spray a 13 x 9 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • 2Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.

    Cut the rolls into 1/4 pieces and coat each piece in the sugar/cinnamon mix.
  • 3Lay the coated rolls into a greased 13 x 19 baking dish.

    Sprinkle with pecans.
  • 4In a medium saucepan over medium heat; melt the butter.

    **I added them both worked fine.
  • 5Once melted, pour in the cup of brown sugar and stir constantly. When the butter and sugar have combined (about 2 minutes), pour this mixture over the rolls in the pan.
  • 6Bake for 30 minutes.

    You may want to place some foil or a pan underneath, on the bottom rack as these come close to boiling over.
  • 7Enjoy!
