      WOWSERS! This sure is a sugar rush! I halved the recipe and made them in mini bundt pans since I'm the only one that likes sweets in this house. It made 3 mini gorilas and 3 mini monkeys lol. I am not a huge fan of walnuts but thought I'd try them in the recipe, and I did like them, but next time I think I'll use pecans. I loved the hidden litle pockets of cream cheese too. This is just a perfect monkey bread recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!! This is definitely a keeper.

      These are so good and decadent! I didn't stack them- and used pecans but otherwise made them just as described- yummy!
