What is Monkey Bread?

Monkey bread is a sweet, sticky pastry made with pre-made biscuit dough that includes butter, sugar, and traditionally cinnamon. Also called “funeral bread” (because it looks like monkey brains), “Mardi Gras bread”, “Dutch treat”, or “pull apart bread”.

In this take of Hot Chocolate Stuffed Monkey Bread, I am skipping the cinnamon and adding hot chocolate mix. I am also stuffing each piece of the “bread” with marshmallows because you can’t have hot chocolate without marshmallows.

How can you tell when it’s done?

It can be tough to tell when the monkey bread is ready. The Hot Chocolate monkey bread is done when it’s a deep golden brown on top and the internal temperature has reached 190 degrees F. This usually takes about 40 minutes.
