Hey Everyone!! My name is Camber Wilson and my blog is Food Snots. Nope, you read it correctly, I said snots. Go ahead and laugh, it’s suppose to be funny 😉 Kind of like snobs but snots instead. Get it? I’m a little bit obsessed with anything that tastes amazing, and lets just be honest, I’m super picky too! So that pretty much sums up my blog to a “T”. Amazing food (check), picky eater (check), snots (check). Yep, that’s it!!

Thanks Jenny for having me here, and I hope you all enjoy!!

  • Oven


Monkey Bread Dough

  • 1 pkg quick rise dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup warm milk
  • 1 cup solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 4.5 - 5 cups all purpose flour


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

During Assembly

  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter melted


  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, pumpkin, butter, sugar, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Beat in eggs and dissolved yeast mixture. Add 2 1/2 cups of flour and mix until just combined. Add the remaining 2 - 2 1/2 cups flour until dough is no longer sticky.
  • At this point either change to the kneading attachment on your mixer or turn onto floured surface; knead until dough is smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat entire surface of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • Meanwhile, make caramel by combining butter, heavy cream, brown sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook, continuously stirring, until caramel has reach 210-215 degrees F (about a minute after boiling). Pour half of caramel into a greased 10-inch fluted pan. Sprinkle half of the pecans over caramel.
  • Punch down dough and shape into 40 balls (about 1-inch diameter). In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Place melted butter in another bowl. Roll balls in butter, then roll in sugar mixture. Place 20 balls in the pan over the caramel. Top with remaining caramel and pecans. 
  • Roll remaining balls in butter and sugar and place over balls in tubed pan. Let stand for 20 minutes.
  • Place fluted pan on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool bread in the pan on a wired rack for 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm.
