How to Make Choco_Monkey Bread


  1. Combine water, sugar, yeast, salt,oil and vanilla in bowl let stand for 5 minutes
  2. Stir in the half cup of cocoa powder and the first cup and a half of flour with a heavy spoon. Add more flour a little at a time as needed, stirring until dough becomes too stiff to continue stirring easily. Add a little more flour and begin kneading. The amount of flour is approximate–your mileage may vary! Continue adding flour and kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic. Beware it is a sticky dough!
  3. allow to rise to double
  4. after the first rise and second knead cut the dough into chunks drudge in melted butter and coat with sugar mix

    1 stick REAL butter melted in bowl

    sugar mix

    1 cup sugar

    4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa (I used special dark)
  5. place them in a greased pan I use bundt cake pan allow to rise 1 hour
  6. and bake at 350 for apx 30 minutes

    I cover mine with foil to keep top from being over baked

    you may also want to place foil under the pan to save on clean up :)
  7. when you remove from oven invert on a severing plate and yummy time


    1 cup powered sugar

    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    enough milk (2-4 tablespoons) for good drizzling and drizzle lavishly!!
