Samoa Monkey Bread Recipe

Chocolate, Caramel, Coconut Gooey Goodness

There’s something about making monkey bread with the kids that’s just so much fun.  I think it’s the name….seriously….who came up with the name Monkey Bread for this delicious dessert???

I have no idea…all I know is that this Samoa Monkey Bread Recipe is TO-DIE-FOR!  If you love the Girl Scout Cookies by the same name or also known as Caramel Delights then you’ll love this Chocolate Caramel Coconut Monkey Bread Recipe!

There’s nothing more fun or a better bonding experience than getting messy in the kitchen with your kids!  We absolutely LOVE cooking and baking together.  As moms we’re under the pressure to make everything a Pinterest worthy creation which causes us to miss out on the joy of our kids being kids.  That’s why my motto is to EMBRACE those happy accidents because that’s what creates the spice of life.  It truly doesn’t matter to your kids how beautiful the cake looks….what matters is that you took the time out to include them in the process of making it.

Who cares if the kitchen looks like a chocolate volcano exploded!

I bought the kids these adorable little aprons that come with their own utensils for our kitchen shenanigans and they absolutely LOVE them!  I swear….Little Man is going to grow up to be a chef one day!  He is constantly asking to help cook or bake something…..I love it!!  (you can click the picture to find where to buy them)
