Rob Barrett Cooks: Monkey bread 4 ways.

My wife was the one who first introduced me to Monkey Bread. It was love at first sight (and I was fond of my wife as well. :-)). Those little chewy, doughy bits of goodness instantly won me over. While they've beena faithful friend over the past years, I've done a lot of experimenting recently and discovered some new versions.

So if you're in need of some major caloric intake proceed. You won't be sorry. (recipes and video after the break)

4 different ways to goodness:
