Dip balls of dough in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Pour a layer of caramel sauce in the bottom of a greased tube pan. Sprinkle pecans on caramel sauce. Place half of the coated dough balls in the tube pan.
Drizzle with caramel sauce and top with pecans. Arrange remaining balls over caramel sauce.
TIP: Save time by kneading the dough and refrigerating overnight. The next day, let the dough sit on the counter for 30 minutes, then continue as the recipe directs.

This Surprise Monkey Bread recipe is really just a glorified monkey bread. I also make it with garlic and cheese for dinner sometimes. When my neighbor has her Christmas brunch, this is one recipe that's always requested.
