Gorilla Bread

108

This bread is perfect for the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's morning, when you want something easy for everyone to snack on throughout the morning. Gorilla bread started in our house as Monkey bread so this recipe can be revised without the cream cheese (the only difference between the two). Enjoy!

1 (8 oz) package of Cream Cheese
1/2 C Granulated Sugar
3 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 C (1 stick) Butter
