I am really excited about this recipe. I mean really excited. I’ve been wanting to come up with a holiday monkey bread, and peppermint had to be included in this recipe. It took me two tries to get it just like I wanted it: sweet, soft and filled with ooey gooey chocolate and peppermint. The first try wasn’t bad at all but didn’t have as much mint flavor as I wanted.
When it came out of the oven on the second try, I knew just by looking at it that this monkey bread was exactly how I wanted it. You see those swirls of chocolate and peppermint throughout?! 🙂 The secret was using creamy mint candies covered in chocolate inside the balls that I made using Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls.
And THIS was how it looked when I turned it onto the plate… MERCY! All I had to do after that was drizzle the cream cheese icing that came with the cinnamon rolls on top, then top with crushed peppermint. All of THIS comes together with just 4 ingredients!
All you need to do is unroll the cinnamon rolls, cut the strip in half and place 3 of the chocolate covered creamy mints in the strip. Then roll it into a ball, place the balls in a bundt pan sprayed with cooking spray and top with butter cut into cubes.
I purchased them at Wal Mart while I was doing a little other holiday shopping. Your other 3 ingredients are creamy mint candies covered in chocolate, butter and crushed peppermint.
I took the monkey bread to one of my best friend’s annual “Trimming the Tree” get-together he has every year and of course everyone loved it and had never had anything like it. Score one for me! 🙂
