Fall is officially upon us, and with that comes a slew of pumpkin products, pumpkin drinks, pumpkin picking and a crap ton of pumpkin recipes. THIS IS NOT A PUMPKIN RECIPE. Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin as much as the next girl, but I came across a video by ‘Tastey Food’ on YouTube featuring pull apart monkey bread and I could not stop thinking about it. So while my 2.5 year old and 6 week old decided to nap at the same time, I sacrificed this brief brief window of precious shower/eating/napping/quiet time to make this recipe. I got out all of my ingredients, preheated the oven, and then I heard it… first it was grunting, then it was whining, then it came out in full force WHAAAAAAAA!!!!! The.baby.woke.up. I did not let this deter me. I went in and rocked him until he fell back to a semi sleep and ran back into the kitchen. I knew that my time was limited, but I REALLY wanted some dang monkey bread. I went to get to work, and then womp womp… I bought pizza crust instead of rolls! Again undeterred, I decided to just wing it.
I am going to cut right to the chase with the ‘recipe’ then you can see my process in pictures below.
Cream Cheese & Chocolate Log
- 1 8oz Bar of Cream Cheese
- 8 oz (half bag) Semi sweet chocolate chips

- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
***NOT PICTURED (OOPS SORRY!) Create a log by rolling the dough lengthwise.***
Brush the log with the butter & brown sugar mixture. Bake for a half hour or until the outside of the log looks like this:
Until next time! (whenever that may be)
