Pillsbury Grands! Monkey Bread

Semi homemade. Yes, guilty.
Delicious - check.
Easy - check.
Why not?
I love making everything from scratch. Sometimes, however, you come across these recipes that you simply must try. Recipes like this one, Pillsbury Grands! Monkey Bread. It's great to make for kids, or big kids. Family and guest will all enjoy. Awesome for that special sweet breakfast too! Quick, easy, yet it will taste very homemade.
I have omitted walnuts and raisins because of kids, otherwise would have loved to try with them too.
