More About This Recipe
Monkey Bread is everyone's fave snack or breakfast treat -- and this version has its holly jolly on just in time for the holidays!

Monkey Bread, with its cinnamon-caramel flavor and super crowd friendly finger-snacking style, is a vintage classic for breakfast, brunch, and midnight slumber-party snacks.

Add a little bit of gingerbread and a lot of lovin' with the oven, and you've got a Gingerbread Monkey Bread so good, it will bring the elves out of the hiding places to tell you where all of your Christmas gifts are hidden. Either that, or they'll just sit down, pull up a chair, and be too busy snacking to tell you much of anything.

Regardless, you want this recipe in your house. Now. So here's how to pull it together in two shakes of a candy cane:

Grab a tube of Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits.

Spray a Bundt cake with a hearty layer of nonstick baking spray.

Open those biscuits and slice each round into four quarters to make bite-sized pieces.

Coat those biscuits up with brown sugar and cinnamon. Hi handsome. Where have you been all my life?

Layer the sugar-tossed biscuits into your prepared baking pan.

Slather with an ample amount of Gingerbread Caramel. Grab a tissue and wipe the tears of joy from your eyes.

After letting the cooked monkey bread cool slightly, turn it out onto a giant plate. Add gingerbread-shaped marshmallows to outside if you want.

Pinch. Pull. And welcome the holidays right into your belly.
