Monkey Bread

This sticky breakfast treat was HUGE in my family while I was growing up - we all loved it then and still do now! It is not healthy, but is quick and deeelish.
It was a hit this past weekend with my girlfriends.
Monkey Bread
4 packages of refrigerated pre-made biscuits (10 per pack, regular size)
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 Tbls + 1 tsp Cinnamon
3/4 Cup Margarine (we used Earth Balance)

Preheat oven to 350.
Grease (or spray) a bundt pan and set aside.
Mix sugar and cinnamon in a ziplok bag and shake to blend together.
Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces and toss into bag of cinnamon and sugar. When all the kids are in the pool (all biscuit pieces in the bag) give it a good shake to coat and separate each piece, turning the bag while coating to make sure each one is enrobed in the sugar mixture. Using your clean hands remove the pieces from the bag (leaving the sugar mixture behind) and place them into your prepared bunt pan (evenly placed of course).
In a small sauce pan, melt 3/4 Cup margarine, once melted add sugar mixture from bag and bring to a boil. Once at a boil, turn off heat and pour mixture evenly over biscuits in bundt pan. Bake 40 minutes.
Turn pan over immediately onto serving dish to prevent any sticking - be careful though as the sugar syrup is HOT and may run over if you take too much time inverting.

PS - for added excitement you may layer in some chopped pecans while placing the biscuits down to rest in the pan.

Ohhh, I will be making the monkey bread. I'm so excited. My version will consist of pecans and bananas. Hopefully, I will remember to take a picture before it gets devoured. Thanks for making it and sharing the recipe.
Love you,
