First, you should know that I’d never heard the term “monkey bread” until I was in college. After hearing it half a dozen times, I asked a friend what on earth monkey bread actually was and once she described it to me, I realized I’d been eating it all my life. Only we didn’t call it monkey bread. We called it “caramel rolls”. Still do to this day.

In fact my brother is going to be in town this entire next week and I can guarantee you he’ll be pleading with my mother to make him a batch of caramel rolls before he heads home. We are kind of hooked on them.

I make this for my husband And i all the time! He loves it, and it’s so easy to make and leave! The first time i made It, i HADN’T read the ricipe through and ACCIDENTALLY layered it, but it still turned out good, just had to Cook a bit longer.

    I’m super excited to hear that you and your husband enjoy this recipe so much, Payten! Thanks for your feedback!

I live in New Zealand ans we don’t have canned biscuits which i think is what we call scones, would a scone mixture work just as well? thanks
