For Monkey Bread:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup salted butter, divided
  • 2 (16.3-ounce) tubes Pillsbury Grands biscuits
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For Caramel Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans


For Monkey Bread:

  1. Prepare Your Slow Cooker:
    • Grease the interior of your slow cooker to prevent sticking.
  2. Create the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:
    • In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup of packed light brown sugar, granulated sugar, and ground cinnamon.
  3. Cut and Coat the Biscuits:
    • Cut each Pillsbury Grands biscuit into quarters. Roll each quarter in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat evenly.
  4. Layering in the Slow Cooker:
    • Melt 1/2 cup of butter. Place a layer of coated biscuit quarters at the bottom of the slow cooker, sprinkle with chopped pecans, and drizzle with melted butter. Repeat until all biscuits are layered.
  5. Top It Off:
    • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of packed light brown sugar over the top, add a touch of salt, and dot with the remaining 1/2 cup of butter.
  6. Slow Cook to Perfection:
    • Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours until the biscuits are cooked through and the edges are golden brown.

For Caramel Sauce:

  1. Prepare the Caramel Sauce:
    • In a saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter. Add light brown sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Simmer to Perfection:
    • Let the sauce simmer for 2-3 minutes until it thickens. Stir in chopped pecans for an extra crunch.
  3. Drizzle and Serve:
    • Once the monkey bread is cooked, drizzle the decadent caramel sauce over the top.

Cook Notes and Variations:

  • Add a Citrus Twist: For a zesty kick, add a teaspoon of orange zest to the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Chocolate Lovers Dream: Integrate chocolate chips between the layers for a gooey, chocolatey surprise.
  • Nut-Free Option: Omit pecans for a nut-free version or substitute with your favorite nuts.

Keto and Low-Carb Versions: For the Keto Enthusiasts:

  • Swap out the Pillsbury Grands biscuits with a keto-friendly alternative using almond or coconut flour.

Low-Carb Adjustment:

  • Reduce the amount of granulated sugar in the cinnamon sugar coating or use a sugar substitute.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Q1: Can I use homemade biscuit dough?

  • Absolutely! If you prefer homemade, go ahead and use your favorite biscuit dough recipe.

Q2: Can I make this ahead of time?

  • Certainly! Prepare the monkey bread and caramel sauce separately, store in the refrigerator, and assemble before serving.

Q3: How do I store leftovers?

  • Store any remaining monkey bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days. Reheat in the microwave for a fresh-from-the-oven feel.
