Easy Overnight Rhodes Rolls Monkey Bread

You won’t believe how easy and simple this recipe is – especially after you taste the monkey bread! Oh. My. Goodness.

Ingredients Needed:

Of course, I recommend the use of Rhodes brand frozen rolls, but you can use any brand. You can find Rhodes brand at Walmart and, hopefully, your local grocer. Other than that, there are only a few ingredients you’ll need:

  • frozen roll dough
  • butterscotch pudding
  • melted butter
  • brown sugar
  • cinnamon
  • non-stick spray
  • pecans or walnuts – optional

Equipment Needed:

  • bundt pan
  • measuring spoon

For the exact measurements, please see the below recipe card.


First you’ll coat a bundt pan with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

Then you’ll add your pecans, if you’re using them to the bottom of the pan.

Followed by the frozen rolls. Just add the rolls and spread them out evenly.

Next you’ll sprinkle the pudding, melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon over the rolls.

And cover the pan with cling wrap and let sit overnight.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the cling wrap from the pan and bake for 30 minutes.

Remove the rolls from the oven and turn upside down onto a plate. There will be ooey gooey goodness dripping down the rolls.
