Hot Chocolate Monkey Bread will take your old recipe and mix it with a cup of hot cocoa. That combination is absolutely delicious!
Anytime you are going to add chocolate and marshmallows to a recipe I already adore, I’m in. You can just never go wrong with those classic treat ingredients. We love them so much that we’ve made Hot Chocolate Cookies and Hot Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls as well.
Hot Chocolate Monkey Bread
You’ve made monkey bread a time or two, right? The basics here are canned biscuits (or homemade if you’re really feeling up for it) cut into fours, coated in cinnamon, sugar and butter, and then baked in the oven.
It’s a classic recipe, one I think I’ve made at least 100 times in my life.
But Hot Chocolate Monkey Bread… oh my goodness. I don’t know if I will ever be able to make it the old fashion way again. It is absolutely delicious.
Making Monkey Bread
The first thing you need to do after cutting your biscuits, is to place marshmallows in each section, then roll it into a ball. Every bite will be oozing with marshmallow goodness!
We prefer to bake our Hot Chocolate Monkey Bread in a bundt pan because it looks so beautiful when it comes out. Plus, everyone can pull giant pieces off to snack on. But any pan you’ve got will work.
When your bread comes out and is still warm, drizzle as much chocolate sauce and marshmallow cream as your heart desires! Add chocolate chips and marshmallow bits on top and enjoy.
This is usually the time when the kids come in to help out!
Enjoy your chocolate dessert and feel free to add your own twist to it. Maybe some peanut butter chips or even sprinkles! It tastes amazing no matter what.
