I was making Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread with a friend:

Me: Wouldn't it be awesome if we put pumpkin inside with the cream cheese?

My Friend: AND wouldn't it be awesome if we served it with the sauce from toffee pudding...??

Me: Oh!! AND wouldn't it be even MORE awesome if we put Southern Comfort in the sauce???

So here is our creation, born from Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread Recipe, and the Food Network's Toffee Sauce. :)

Enjoy!

Wow, your friends and family with this gorilla bread (aka monkey bread). Biscuits are stuffed with pumpkin and cream cheese. It's a fantastic flavor combination that adds tons of flavor to the treat. With the cinnamon, sugar, butter coating, the gorilla bread alone is quite tasty. The addition of toffee sauce, though, makes it even better. It's buttery and has a slight flavor of Southern Comfort. Altogether, it's a dreamy autumn dessert. Don't let the steps scare you. Seems like a lot, but it's easy to make. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Pumpkin Gorilla Bread With SoCo Toffee Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt 1 stick of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar in a small pot over low heat.
  2. Stir together the white sugar and the cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Open up the cream cheese and cut into 16 evenly sized cubes.
  4. Next, open up the cans of biscuits and flatten each biscuit to about 1/2 inch. Place one cube of cream cheese, a dollop of pumpkin, and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar in the center of each flattened biscuit.
  5. Now seal up each biscuit to make individual dumplings.
  6. Now, spray a Bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/3 of the melted butter/brown sugar into the bottom of the Bundt pan.
  7. Next, place 1/2 of the pumpkin/cream cheese/biscuit dumplings into the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Then pour another 1/3 of the melted butter/brown sugar on top of the dumplings.
  8. Layer the rest of the pumpkin/cream cheese/biscuit dumplings.
  9. Then sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar. Then top with the rest of the melted butter/brown sugar.
  10. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes.
  11. To make the SoCo Toffee Sauce, place all ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat. Stir, bring to a boil. Once it boils, turn the heat down to low. Continue cooking/stirring until it comes together and is smooth and velvety.
  12. Once the Pumpkin Gorilla Bread is baked, wait 5 minutes and invert onto a serving dish.
  13. Serve with warm SoCo Toffee Sauce.

    Be prepared to be asked to make this for every potluck moving forward. NOM NOM NOM
