The grandkids loved it.

Loved it - had to keep the kids away from it so there would be some left for Daddy! It does take a little while to get it together but definitely worth it!

Chocolate-Filled Monkey Bread

Very easy to make and absolutely delicious! I used milk chocolate chips and caramel bits instead of semi-sweet chips. Use a tube pan instead of a bundt pan--mine overflowed while baking. It was an overwhelming hit at home and at work.

my family loved it. A definite do again.

- Lynnan Roczkowsky from Calgary, AB

fun to do!

I made this and even though it took a while, it was easy and sort of fun to put together. There are many ways that you could change the recipe slightly for new flavors too. I would make it again.
