surprise monkey bread recipe

so on sunday I woke up at 7am [no alarm, just internal clock] and was actually excited to get up because I was planning on making "surprise monkey bread" - I found this recipe on pinterest and had been thinking about it all week. so up I went and made this super easy and delicious monkey bread [biscuits, brown sugar and cream cheese? sign me up!]. I figured since we had extra family over I had an excuse to make something a little extra for breakfast [and by breakfast I mean something to munch on all day]...
Surprise Monkey Bread
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, cubed
2 tubes (12 ounces each) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 package (8 ounces) Cream Cheese (softened or cubed), cut into 20 cubes

In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat brown sugar and butter on high for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved; set aside.

Flatten each biscuit into a 3-in. circle. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon in the center of each biscuit. Top with a cream cheese cube. Fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal tightly.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup walnuts into a 10-in. fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray. Layer with half of the biscuits, cinnamon-sugar and butter mixture. Repeat layers.

Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 loaf 
yup. it's as good as it looks.
I had to throw away the half we had left in fear that I would have eaten in all within 48 hours.
I'm kinda pissed I did that now.

Oh, YUM! I've never had monkey bread with cream cheese but it sounds awesome. I can't believe you had any left over - or that you had the willpower to toss it! Teach me about this willpower thing, will you?
