Monkey bread that all your monkeys will love

Mommies, have you ever had a moment where you step back and look at your life, only to realize that, this in fact is your circus and those are your monkeys? Well, on days like those where you don’t even want to claim your husband, let alone your kids, this monkey bread recipe and a strong cup of coffee (or your beverage of choice, because, toddlers) will make everything better. Alright, it’s not a miracle recipe, but, it’s pretty amazing if I do say so myself. This is one of my favorites in the sense that EVERYONE loves it, when my husband and I lived in Nashville, I ended up having to print this recipe off for several coworkers of mine. This particular recipe is one that will be making an appearance at my personal Christmas Day brunch, and I cannot wait! Here goes! Let me know what y’all think!!
