Caramel Apple Monkey Bread
The Perfect Monkey Bread Recipe for Fall
Apples and caramel have been showing up around here a lot lately. (Check out this Caramel Apple Dump Cake and Baked Apples with Salted Caramel Sauce!) It’s just the perfect Fall combination and I want to find ways to combine them as much as I can!
I hate that living in Florida means we can never go Apple picking. It’s something I have always dreamed of doing, however apples do not grow well in Florida. So when Crunch Time Apple Growers sent me some gorgeous SnapDragon Apples to try (fresh from the farm in New York), I was ecstatic!
What Are Snapdragon Apples?
Snapdragons are one of my favorite flowers to grow, so I had a feeling that I would love SnapDragon Apples too. I was defiantly not disappointed!
SnapDragon Apples have a delicious extra sweet and juicy flavor, as well as a perfect crispy texture. If you enjoy Honeycrisp apples, you’ll love SnapDragon apples then, with there similar taste and flavor (Honeycrisp was a parent variety of SnapDragon).
SnapDragon apples are grown in New York and were developed by Cornell University in partnership with Crunch Time Apple Growers. You can use this handy tool to find WHERE TO BUY SnapDragon Apples in a store near you.

How to Make Apple Monkey Bread
This gooey Caramel Apple Monkey Bread is crazy easy to make — it’s only 6 simple ingredients! — and a total guilty pleasure of mine. I love making Sunday breakfast for my little family of four and it’s always something over the top. Biscuits and gravy, pancakes and breakfast tacos come up very often in our rotation, but when I really want to be bad — we have monkey bread.
This recipe involves cans of cinnamon rolls, caramel and chunks of fresh SnapDragon Apples. It’s best served hot out of the oven with a big mug of coffee! Enjoy!
