Monkey Bread

So this is one of my kids' FAVORITES! It's yummy AND they get to help make it!

You will need 3 packages of the biscuits in the "poppable" container. Open them, and cut 1 1/2 packages of them into 4ths. I line them up, and use my pizza cutter.

Then the "little monkeys" (why it's called Monkey bread) get to roll the quartered pieces into balls and put them in a mixture of;
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tsp cinnamon

Once the balls are coated, place them in the bottom of a greased bunt pan.

1 1/2 packages of the quartered, rolled, and coated biscuits.

Shred one (I did 2 because we like apples) apple and place on top. You can add nuts and raisins too, but I don't like them!

Quarter, roll, and coat the remaining 1 1/2 packages of biscuits and place them on top.
Sorry, no more pics, but then with the remaining sugars and cinnamon mixture melt 1 1/2 cubes of butter, mix, and pour over the entire thing!
Bake at 350 degrees for 25+ minutes, until it's brown on top, and it's not doughy.
Let cool for about 10-15 minutes, then invert onto a plate.
Growing up we would eat it with toothpicks, and my kids enjoy that too!
