Chocolate Chip Monkey Bread Recipe For Easter Brunch

You really don’t have to wait or even celebrate Easter to make this amazingly flavorful and super easy Chocolate Chip Monkey Bread Recipe. In fact, we were anticipating a snow day, so I made the monkey bread after dinner and let it sit out overnight when I knew I would have a little extra time in the morning.

The kids started the morning with a super sweet treat that we will be making again. The first monkey bread I ever tasted was from my neighbor who gives Monkey Bread for neighbor gifts. Monkey Bread is a great brunch recipe since you have to make it ahead of time and it rises overnight.chocolate chip monkey bread recipe
