Vanilla Strawberry Monkey Bread1

Valentine's Day is this weekend and I have got a super easy, last minute breakfast or dessert idea for you today! Now that I am grown, married, and have children of my own, it's nice to do something special for the whole family whenever there is a holiday like Valentine's Day, and this recipe is perfect for everyone to share. Vanilla Strawberry Monkey Bread is sweet, gooey, and perfectly fruity! There are hints of white chocolate chips throughout the monkey bread that bring a little decadence to this dessert as well. You can even prep it the night before, leave it in the fridge overnight & bake it fresh first thing in the morning!

Can you imagine eating this warm and gooey from the oven? It's amazing, just take my word for it! Here's the recipe & then I will show you how to put it together:

 

 

Vanilla Strawberry Monkey Bread

Ingredients:
18 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, thawed, but still cold
1 small box vanilla pudding
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 to 3/4 pound strawberries, rinsed, hulled and sliced (I use my egg slicer to make it quick and easy.)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter  

Directions:
Prepare a bundt pan with baking spray. Place vanilla pudding in a small bowl. Cut rolls into fourths & coat them in the vanilla pudding. Stagger coated rolls inside the bundt pan. Alternately add slices of strawberries and white chocolate chips.   Once all the rolls, strawberries and chocolate chips have been staggered in the bundt pan, sprinkle any remaining pudding on top of the monkey bread.   Heat the sugar and butter in the microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves and mixture is syrupy. Pour around the edges and on top of the monkey bread. Spray a piece of plastic wrap with baking spray and cover the pan. Set in a warm place and wait until the rolls double in size and almost reach the top of the pan.   Bake at 350ËšF for 25-35 minutes until browned and the bread is done where the pieces touch each other.

IMPORTANT:
Place a baking sheet on the shelf underneath the bundt pan to catch any potential spills. Cover the bread with foil the last 10 minutes, if it's starting to get too brown. Immediately after baking, invert onto plate. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

Spray your bundt pan with baking spray and let's get started.
