The holidays are coming and schedules are being made and meals are being planned.  There is something about a warm and yummy breakfast that just screams family memories!  And the Cream Cheese Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread Recipe I have for you guys today is just that.

Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

You only need a few ingredients (which I have a coupon for those Cinnamon Rolls for you guys listed below!) and about an hour or so to get a little messy.  I actually have a Winn-Dixie real close so I rode my bike up, used my coupon, and rode home – savings, exercise, and the ingredients for a delicious meal!

Tasty Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

You actually take the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls out of the package, unroll them, then cut the strips in half, then you fold them in half.  I did these steps right on my counter.

How to make Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

Once you have them folded in half, you place equal amount of cream cheese right onto the cinnamon roll strips.

Now that you have the cream cheese on the strips, you fold the cream cheese into the middle of the roll and gently “crimp” the ends of the cinnamon roll so that the cream cheese is nicely tucked inside.  Then you will layer your cinnamon roll cream cheese balls into your greased baking dish.

Once 40 minutes of baking at 350 degrees and you have allowed your Cream Cheese Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread to cool, you will drizzle on the icing for a breakfast that your family will LOVE.

  12. Has anyone actually made the above recipe?! The comments reviewing coupons are great…but I’m more interested in the outcome of the ingredients themselves!

    1. I have! My kids would have been happy with a little less cream cheese (they aren’t huge cream cheese people, what?!) but other than that, we all loved it! It’s fairly easy to make, just a tad time consuming to assemble, but that’s to be expected with monkey bread. Let me know if you try it 🙂
