Family Matters: Monkey Bread – Kids Love This Stuff


Monkey bread has been around as long as I can remember. I have fond memories of making this treat as a kid. The whole house would smell of warm cinnamon, and my brothers would come running to pinch off a bit of this sticky and delicious dessert.

Kids love this stuff, and it’s so easy for them to help make. They’ll have fun pinching off the dough and shaking it in a bag of cinnamon and sugar. They’ll have even more fun getting their fingers all sticky while they enjoy the warm, sweet, cinnamon bread.

So, if you are looking for a fun activity this weekend, get your kids in the kitchen to help you bake this easy recipe. It will make for some sticky and delicious family time!
