Homemade Monkey Bread with Cream Cheese Icing

Sunday Brunch! Sweet, cinnamon sugar spiced, pull apart monkey bread with drizzled deliciousness : )

I haven’t made monkey bread in a few years, my family use to love it! Perfect for brunch or dessert + a cup of coffee 😁

If you prefer not to make homemade dough, refrigerated cinnamon rolls will work. Ask your kids to help shape the dough balls & dip them into the cinnamon sugar. I opted for cream cheese frosting {my favorite} however, vanilla icing is great too. Stay safe & get your bake on 💛🐒☀️
