How to Make Easy Christmas Morning Butterscotch Monkey Bread

Sharing is caring!

This Christmas morning Butterscotch Monkey Bread is one of my kids’ favorite traditions. You can make it in advance so all you have to do is pop it in the oven during those busy Christmas mornings!

Butterscotch Monkey Bread

These ingredients are all easy to locate. You can use both frozen rolls or biscuits, depending on what your grocery store has (it’s always nice to have a back-up option in case one ingredient is out of stock!)

Ingredients

Supplies Needed: One bunt pan or fluted tube cake pan

Optional Decorations: Fruit by the Foot (for a bow), powdered sugar, or holiday sprinkles

Directions

  1. Grease bunt pan with cooking spray.
  2. If using biscuits, cut them into quarters.
  3. Melt butter in the microwave and combine with remaining ingredients (butterscotch pudding mix, cinnamon, and brown sugar.)
  4. If using biscuits, combine the biscuits with the other ingredients in large bowl and place in pan. (If using frozen rolls, place them in the pan first. Then, pour the mixture over the top of the frozen rolls and let the mixture fall down through the cracks.)
  5. If using non-frozen rolls, refrigerate until you are ready to bake. If using frozen rolls, leave out at room temperature overnight (or at least 5 hours) for the rolls to defrost and rise.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.
  7. Turn upside down to remove from pan and serve warm.

Optional Decorations

This butterscotch monkey bread looks beautiful on its own! If you’d like to jazz it up a bit more, you can add some extra embellishments, such as:

  • Sprinkling with powdered sugar. (I love to use a dispenser, so it comes out evenly.)
  • Adding holiday sprinkles for a pop of color
  • Creating an edible bow using Fruit by the Foot. You can see how I did this for a cream-puff wreath here!

How Far in Advance Can I Make This?

If you’re like me and you’re frantically wrapping presents and doing ALL the things on Christmas Eve, don’t worry! This can be made 1-2 days in advance and only takes a few minutes to prepare, literally!

If you’re using frozen rolls, just be sure to give yourself time for the rolls to defrost and rise (at least five hours or overnight.) Once the rolls have risen, store in the refrigerator if you don’t plan on baking right away.

How to Store Leftovers

This butterscotch monkey bread is so tasty, I bet it will get gobbled up quickly! We leave it out at room temp throughout most of the day on Christmas and graze. Store in the refrigerator if you can’t come back to it for a while and reheat in the microwave before serving again.

Perfect Presentation Platters

Christmas Platters: This dish would be adorable on anything! I especially love this Candy Cane Cookie Plate, this Merry and Bright plate, or this Happy Holidays platter.

Wooden Serving Boards: I used this black wooden serving board and this recipe would also look beautiful on a brown wooden serving tray, this white-washed option, or this marble and wood choice.

Cake Stands: This wooden cake stand or this beaded cake stand from Antique Farmhouse would be lovely options as well!

Dessert Plates: These candy cane plates or holiday plates from Target would be perfect, or these MacKenzie Childs toyland plates would make for a nice higher-end choice.

Enjoy!

What I love most about this butterscotch monkey bread is that it is not just a meal, but also a memory. My kids look forward to this all year and say it’s one of their favorite Christmas traditions! I hope this recipe helps to add some magic into your Christmas (and make those chaotic mornings a little bit simpler for you!) Merry Christmas, everyone!
