Cookies and Cream Monkey Bread
There are several food flavor combinations that just work well together. Cookies & cream has been a lifelong favorite combo of mine & now I have one more way I can scarf it down, um, I mean eat it. This Cookies & Cream Monkey Bread is soft & sweet with crunchy bits of cookies, & a cream cheese icing drizzle over the top. Is your mouth watering yet? Ok good, then I am not the only one drooling over my computer right now.
You can make this monkey bread & be in complete dessert heaven, or you can keep drooling over the computer screen. It's not a hard decision to make. You need to make this monkey bread! So here is how you do it:
You need 24 Frozen Rhodes Dinner Rolls (thawed, but still cold), 1/2 cup butter (melted), 1 large box (4.2oz) Cookies N' Creme pudding mix, 12 crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (crush cookies in a food processor), & 1/2 cup white chocolate chips.
Thoroughly spray the inside of a bundt pan. Sprinkle 1/3 of the crushed cookies on the bottom. This will make the top of the monkey bread pretty once it is inverted.
Cut each roll in half & coat in the butter.
Place half of the remaining crushed cookies into your dry pudding mix. Stir it up. Then dredge each buttery dinner roll piece into the pudding & cookie mixture.
Stagger coated rolls in the pan. Once you have about half the rolls in there, sprinkle in the majority of your white chocolate chips, saving a few for the top (which will be the bottom after it is inverted.)
Repeat process with the other half of the rolls, & top with the remaining cookie crumbs & white chocolate chips. Spray a piece of plastic wrap & cover the pan. Allow to rise until double in size or it reaches the top of the pan.
Bake at 350˚F for 25-35 minutes until the bread is browned. For the cream cheese icing: blend 3oz cream cheese, 2 Tbsp butter, 2/3 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp vanilla & 1-3 Tbsp milk (depending on desired consistency.) Put icing in a plastic bag, cut off the corner & decorate the top of the warm monkey bread.
Enjoy while still warm!
