Monkeyballs


This dessert/breakfast(!) was a part of my childhood. My aunt and my mom made this for my sister and I in the morning before school and I don't know how we didn't crash in the middle of classes. It's an ooey, gooey mash of dough and sweetness that can be shared with your family.  My mom made this for my family brunch today, we all pulled off pieces until there was none. This is super easy but super NOT healthy :)

2 loaves of bread dough
1/2 cup of melted earth balance
1 cup of sugar
2 tbsp of cinnamon
Pecans or walnuts (optional)

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Combine your cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Pinch off walnut sized pieces of dough. Roll them in your melted butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar. Spray a bundt pan with oil and place the pieces of dough in the pan. Do this until all the dough is rolled in butter and cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle the nuts around the bowl if you use them. Bake for 35-45 minutes at 325 degrees. Serve, pull apart and enjoy!

I ate way too much of this today but it was a fun family time it was hard not to. Feel free to leave a comment if you try this recipe!
