Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread Ingredients

Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 2 8 ounce cans of prepared large cinnamon rolls
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • ¼ cup brown sugar

Substitutions and Additions

ICING: While the bread is sweet on its own, it’s so delicious with the addition of a sweet glaze on top. Simply microwave the icing provided in the prepared cinnamon rolls for about 10 to 15 seconds to liquefy it slightly. Pour the melted icing over the top of the monkey bread. You can also keep the icing on the side and use it as a dip.

How to Serve

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread is best eaten fresh, and storing it in the fridge can cause the bread to become hard and stale. If you need to store leftover monkey bread place it in an airtight container or cover it tightly with plastic wrap for up to 2 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you add nuts to Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread? 

Chopped nuts, like pecans or walnuts, are a crunchy and delightful addition to your monkey bread. Add them to the bread before baking, or use them as a topping. Another delicious addition is a handful of chocolate chips. 

What can I use as a topping? 

Dust the top of your cinnamon roll monkey bread with powdered sugar or a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Drizzle your monkey bread with caramel sauce or chocolate syrup or add a handful of chopped nuts to the top of the monkey bread.  

Can you freeze monkey bread? 

Cinnamon roll monkey bread tastes best served on the same day, and we don’t recommend that you freeze leftovers.
