Saucy Monkey Bread Recipe

You're seriously gonna go ape for this Monkey Bread! Why? Every bite is a sensory experience not to be missed. The brown sugar and butter in this recipe create a harmonic balance against the bitterness of the walnuts, while the cinnamon and ginger create an irresistible warmth, and it is all finished off by the sweet caramel, vanilla, and woody flavors of a rich bourbon. Serve hot and stand back, because there's bound to be a stampede.
