Basically, monkey bread is biscuit dough (or homemade bread dough if you’d rather) that has been rolled around in cinnamon sugar and then covered in a sticky, sweet brown sugar sauce that bakes into a thick syrupy coating.

I like to add a little frosting to mine as well, just like you would to cinnamon rolls.

This recipe is a sweet Fall twist on classic monkey bread, because we’re adding a little pumpkin to that thick, caramel-y sticky sauce today! It’s unworldly, seriously.

We inhaled the pan of this stuff in moments, literally. I can’t even. ­čś▒

Enjoy!
