Basic Monkey/Gorilla Bread

Great fun to make with kids!!

Monkey/Gorilla Bread

Ingredients:3 (12 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuitdough
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 
Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube/Bundt(R) pan.
Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. 
Cut biscuits into quarters. 
Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. 
Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. 
Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.
In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.


You can up the ante from Monkey to Gorilla by flattening out the balls of dough and wrapping around small cubes of cream cheese, chunks of banana, or bits of chocolate (or all 3!) before reforming into a ball and THEN rolling in the sugars and cinnamon.
