Sock Monkey Hop and Monkey Bread ideas

10-Monkey-Bread Ideas from Pilsbury to go along with the Sock Monkey hop and giveaway.

S'mores Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread is so simple to make and tastes great. Here are 10 new takes on the classic recipe for Monkey Bread–from sweet to savory from Pilsbury.

I joined in with a new challenge… make a sock monkey with the help of Ana and Megan Araujo from When Creativity Knocks. They’ve put together a fantastic video tutorial called  Sock Monkey’s Go BanAnas.  Check it out.  Unfortunately I was not able to get my monkey finished.  I will post when I do.  I thought Monkey Bread was a great companion to the hop.
