Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread

On Easter morning, I decided to make a yummy breakfast before church. Since I really am not a huge breakfast fan, I always have a hard time coming up with ideas. After searching through my pantry and fridge, I pulled out the two containers of cinnamon rolls we had and decided to use those up. Last week, there had been a huge sale on fruit at my local grocery store and I had bought a big bag of apples. Since we still had a few to use up, I grabbed one and decided to make this monkey bread. My kids are huge apple fans, so they LOVED this. My hubby and I loved the cinnamon sugar flavor, and the way the apples caramelized in the bread. I had this ready for the oven in less than ten minutes, and the entire family enjoyed it! Definitely a breakfast success!!
