How to Make Surprise Monkey Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat brown sugar and butter on high for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved; set aside.
    Flatten each biscuit into a 3-in. circle. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle a heaping 1/2 teaspoon in the center of each biscuit. Top with a cream cheese cube. Fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal tightly.

    Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 loaf (12 servings).
