Paula Deen's Banana-Chocolate Gorilla Bread

My cousin Pam sent this to me. Now I wish I had all of these ingredients to make this for breakfast tomorrow.

3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 c light brown sugar, packed
8 tbsp butter (1 stick)
2 tubes refrigerated crescent roll dough (12 ounces)
3 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
2 bananas, sliced 1/4-inch to make thick 48 slices
4 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 2/3 cup)
1 1/2 c walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a Bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon. In a small saucepan, melt the brown sugar with the butter over low heat.
Break open the crescent roll packages and separate the triangles of dough. Brush each triangle with sweetened condensed milk and top with 2 banana slices and 1 teaspoon chocolate chips; fold the edges of the triangle together and seal. Sprinkle each with 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar.
Place half of the walnuts in the pan and top with half of the dough packets. Pour half of the brown sugar-butter mixture over the dough and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon sugar. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Bake for 1 hour, until puffed, golden brown, and firm to the touch. Transfer the pan to a rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Place a platter on top of the pan and invert. Serve warm...
