How to Make Monkey Bread with Biscuits
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a bundt pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
Open the cans of biscuits.
Cut each individual biscuit in quarters and set aside.
Open your package of cookie dough and cut each square into halves. (If you didn't buy the cookie dough that is in squares, just slice according to directions and then cut in half.)
Lightly flatten one of your biscuit quarters and add your piece of cookie dough in the center.
Pinch all edges to close and roll in your hands to form a ball.
Set each one aside as you do them until all are completed.
Using a ziplock bag add the sugar and brown sugar, mix to combine.
Add 5-7 of the rolled biscuits into the ziplock bag and shake to coat each ball in the sugar mix.
Begin to add the dough balls into the prepared pan.
Repeat until you've added them all in the pan.
In a small saucepan add your butter and brown sugar heat on medium heat until melted- stirring often.
Pour your melted glaze all over your dough balls evenly.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and set.
Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then flip out onto a plate and enjoy! See? Monkey bread with biscuits is a breeze to make! If you love monkey bread, you should definitely try this recipe for Oreo Monkey Bread and Peanut Butter and Jelly Monkey Bread.
