The Very Random Link Up #5-Caramel Pecan Monkey Bread

Hello peeps,
It's Tuesday! Which means it's time for The Very Random Link Up with yours truly and my bestest friend, Heather!

You guys. I'm super duper excited about our topic this week! It's no secret I like food, I'm quite the chunky kid at heart! ;)

What is your favorite recipe?

I have many favorites so it was really hard for me to choose one but alas I thought a family tradition would be the way to go.

When I think about Christmas and Thanksgiving mornings growing up I always think of waking up to the smell of Monkey Bread. It's a family favorite and has been a tradition for us for as long as I can remember. This stuff is ooey gooey melt in your mouth can't stop eating deliciousness! How's that for a description?

So without further adieu, Caramel Pecan Monkey Bread!

Caramel Pecan Monkey Bread

To start out you will need biscuits, four cans to be exact.
Break each biscuit into three pieces, you can cut them or just tear them like me. In the end it doesn't matter if they are the exact same size.
You will also need a cup of cinnamon sugar mixture in a bowl. Once biscuits are broken up roll them into little balls and toss them in cinnamon sugar. Note: your hands will get messy! :)
Meanwhile, you will also need to have a bundt pan all ready to go-spray with pam first and then take about a half cup of pecans and spread them across the bottom of the pan. I totally forgot to get a pic of this part!
After pecans are in pan start to layer dough balls on top of pecans. It will start to look something like this.
Once all balls of dough are in pan you will need the next three ingredients. Cook and Serve Butterscotch pudding- NOT INSTANT this is VERY IMPORTANT, Brown Sugar, and Butter.

This part is very very important! The order in which you place these three ingredients is crucial to how this ends up coming out. I speak from experience! Take both boxes of pudding and sprinkle the powder on top of dough balls. Then take 1 cup brown sugar and sprinkle on top of pudding.

 Next take 1 stick of melted butter and pour on top of brown sugar. No pic of this either-whoops!

Once this is finished your work is complete for the night. Just cover pan lightly with aluminum foil and let sit overnight. In the morning remove foil from pan and cook at 375 for 30-40 mins depending on your oven. You will know when it is finished when the dough starts to look brown and kind of crispy on the top. If it still looks very doughy its probably not finished yet.

Once you remove from oven let pan sit for maybe 5 mins, not too long as you don't want the gooeyness to get stuck to the pan. When the 5 mins are up flip monkey bread onto plate and oogle the deliciousness that is before you! ;)

And our questions for the next two weeks are:
