Chocolate Cream Cheese Stuffed Monkey Bread

This entry is part 15 of 26 in the series Feed the Fam

Many of you have seen the Tasty viral video of this delicious Monkey Bread recipe via Facebook in the past couple of months. My coworkers challenged me to recreate this recipe and I delightfully accepted. This is a great dish to make ahead and bring to any potlucks at work, family gatherings or just to make for those holiday mornings. I must warn you though, this recipe is serious with the sugar and full fat. DO NOT SKIMP OUT on all the good stuff this holiday season because it simply just won’t be the same. All the unnecessary calories are worth it!


  • 2 16 oz containers of biscuit dough (16 big biscuits total)
  • 8-12 oz Cream Cheese
  • Chocolate Chips (we used semi-sweet)
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts (optional)


 Cut biscuits in half creating 32 pieces.

  1. Cube the cream cheese.
  2. Flatten each biscuit on a flat surface.
  3. Place one cube of cream cheese and a few chocolate chips in the center of each biscuit.
  4. Fold the biscuit dough around the cream cheese and chocolate and form into a ball.
  5. In a 1 gallon plastic bag combine sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Add all balls to the bag, seal the bag, and shake until well coated.
  7. In a microwave safe bowl combine brown sugar and cup butter. Microwave on high for 70 seconds – stopping halfway to stir until it meets a caramel consistency.
  8. To a greased 9×13 baking pan (Bundt pan can be used as well I just didn’t have one) sprinkle half of the walnuts, half the dough pieces, and drizzle half the caramel glaze.  
  9. Repeat with remaining walnuts, dough, and glaze.
  10. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and turn upside down onto a plate to cool for 10 minutes before lifting off the pan.
  12. Lift off the pan, pull apart, and enjoy!
