Monkey Bread!

In my family, every holiday begins with monkey bread. Now I am sure most of you are wondering what the heck is monkey bread? Not to worry, there are no monkeys involved, and it is surprisingly not some sort of banana bread. Instead, it is one of the finest of treats, and luckily for you, it is one of the easiest things to make!

Over Easter weekend, our family made two batches of monkey bread (which is plenty...), but needless to say, they were both nearly devoured in minutes of emerging from the oven. And with that, I will share the recipe with you!
Monkey Bread
1 small box of butterscotch instant pudding mix
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 cup of margarine or butter
24 frozen dinner rolls

1. Mix the butterscotch pudding mix with the sugars and cinnamon and set aside.

2. Put the dinner rolls in a well greased bundt pan (we love bundt pans in the garden  unit!) and place small patties of butter in between. Then, sprinkle with 1/2 to 3/4 of the sugary mix.

3. Let rise overnight, and in the morning, bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, until the rolls are golden brown.

4. Secure your place next to the oven, so that when the sticky mess comes out, you have first dibs on the best part! Enjoy
