  • cans Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls
  • 1/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1/2  cup  brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup  unsalted butter melted


  • Spray a 12-cup bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Open each can of cinnamon rolls. Reserve the icing for later. Cut each roll into 4 pieces.
  • Place the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a gallon size resealable bag. Add the cut up cinnamon rolls (the pieces will fall apart a little) to the bag. Seal and shake to coat the pieces with cinnamon sugar.
  • Stir together the brown sugar and melted butter.
  • Place rolls in pan and drizzle with melted butter mixture.
  • Bake at 350°F for 40-50 minutes or until the top is a dark golden brown and the rolls are cooked through.
  • Cool 5 minutes then invert the monkey bread onto your serving plate. Do this carefully: the pan is hot! Drizzle cinnamon roll icing over the top of the monkey bread and serve warm.
