I’ve never made Monkey Bread.  If you can believe that.  I watched my high school best friend’s mom make it a couple times, and I helped roll the dough balls in cinnamon sugar.  But attempted the beast by myself, never.  I really should make this stuff more often.  There’s a million and five flavor possibilities, and it’s super easy to whip up.

Lesson learned though, be sure to spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Yes the “caramel” sauce is super buttery, but the top half of my monkey bread stuck to the pan.  I used a spatula to loosen it, and managed to get the bread to look mostly like it should.  But who cares really, because we ripped things thing apart and went to town!  Besides the marshmallow sauce will hide any flaw you think may be there.

Each dough ball is filled with chocolate, rolled in graham crackers crumbs, drowned in a sugar butter sauce.  Then you bake the goods until the sauce caramelizes, and the graham crackers meld into everything.

Serves: 6 to 8
Ingredients
  • 3 cans biscuits (the smaller cheap biscuits)
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips (more if you have a little helper)
  • 4 sheets graham crackers, crushed into fine crumbs
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup marshmallow fluff
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Remove the biscuits from their cans. Tear each biscuit into two pieces.
  3. Flatten a biscuit piece into a circle. Place some chocolate chips in the center of the circle (about ½ teaspoon), Pinch the dough around the chocolate chips to seal them in the dough ball. Roll the dough ball in the graham cracker crumbs. Place the dough ball in prepared bundt pan. Repeat with all remaining dough. Save any leftover chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs for garnish.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt ½ cup butter over medium heat. Add sugar, vanilla, and salt. Cook until sugar dissolves and mixture beings to bubble. {I would start melting the butter while you make the dough balls.} After the butter mixture bubbles, pour it over the dough balls, evenly.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. The top will be crispy and the butter/sugar will caramelize. Let stand for at least 10 minutes.
  6. In the same saucepan, melt together marshmallow fluff and 2 tablespoons butter. Stir until marshmallow is melted and mixture is smooth.
  7. Turn out monkey break onto a serving plate. Drizzle marshmallow sauce over top of the monkey bread. Sprinkle chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs over the top of the monkey bread as garnish.
