Monkey Bread

This was a family tradition at our house on New Years Eve. My Aunt Jill would make it and it was so yummy. I remember how she would always add lot's of Cinnamon and it was always sticky and oh so yummy! This is a great recipe for kids to help you with. Oh so easy and very yummy!
2 Loafs of frozen bread dough defrosted (or 1 batch homemade roll dough)
1/2 C. Melted Butter
1 C. White Sugar
1 C. Brown Sugar
2-4 Heaping Tablespoons of Cinnamon (to your taste)
1 Package Vanilla Instant Pudding (Optional)
1-2 C. Chopped nuts (Optional)

2 C. Powdered Sugar
1/4 C. milk

Place melted Butter in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix sugars, cinnamon nuts and pudding. Form small balls out of bread dough, dip balls into butter, then roll in cinnamon/sugar mix and place evenly in a bundt pan untill all bread dough is used. Allow 20-30 minutes for dough to rise, then cook at 350 for approximately 30 minutes. Once cool remove from pan and drizzle icing mixture over top if desired. Enjoy either plain or iced.

This sounds really yummy. Could you use Rhodes rolls instead of loaves of bread??

Yep you could use either, I think they are the same, just different shapes when they freeze them, so it should be exactly the same.
