Breakfast and Brunch

Peanut Butter and Jelly Skillet Monkey Bread

Break out the biscuits, you’ll want to try this fun twisted Peanut Butter and Jelly Monkey Bread. I’ve used the new Simply line of biscuits from Pillsbury and created a perfect after school treat or new brunch idea.

Grab the kiddos and let them help shake the ziplock bag around and watch this fun treat rise in the oven, enjoy!

Before you go be sure to hop on over to see my latest post, apparently I have PB&J on the brain!

Here are the products I used.

Loving this new line from Pillsbury!

You’ll start by pouring your melted butter into a large ziplock bag.

Cut up all of your biscuits into fourths.

Add them to the bag and toss around to coat the biscuits in butter.

Pour in the sugar and mix, mix, mix!

Your biscuits will be nice and coated like so ๐Ÿ™‚

Arrange your biscuits into your favorite 9-inch cast iron skillet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.

Drizzle your warmed peanut butter over tops.

Like so ๐Ÿ™‚

Either drizzle or spoon over the warmed jelly and time to bake! 350 Degrees F for 18-22 minutes ๐Ÿ™‚

Pour over your sweet cream while still warm, oh yah!

Enjoy the site of this gorgeous skillet for a second and then….break apart and munch ๐Ÿ™‚

    sylvie says:

    I’m with Corrina – I don’t have a cast iron skillet. Can I just throw this all in an 8×8 baking dish and get the same results?

      Jenny says:

      Hi Sylvie, yes an 8×8 inch baking dish will work just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

        I made it this weekend, and between my husband, me and our 4 kids it was gone in a flash! We used strawberry jam since we always have that in our cupboard, and I used probably a 1/2 cup of peanut butter instead of a 1/4 cup. Good grief was that ever good!! Caught my youngest trying to lick the pan!

    Sues says:

    Wow, this is like a dream come true!! Of course, I’d probably end up eating the whole skillet… But being completely happy ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. 19

    this looks amazing. i can’t wait to make it on saturday morning. i have to wait until the weekend so the hubby will be home, otherwise i might eat the whole pan myself!

  20. 20

    mmmm This looks really good.

    I love peanut butter and jam so much. This would be excellent with blackberry jam.

    I’ve been following your blog for some time now, but rarely (if ever) leave a comment. I don’t know why, maybe I’m just speechless with my overworked, salivating taste-buds that are preventing my brain cells from forming logical thoughts. None of that made sense, I know. Suffice it to say, I keep thinking you are going to “peak out” on creating these wonderful treats, but you continue to amaze me with more and more deliciousness. I started following after visiting from Kevin & Amanda. I will continue to follow & enjoy reading your wonderful creations.

    Diane M. says:

    I made this on Saturday morning and it was so easy and amazing! I definitely recommend getting a good strawberry jam rather than grape. 4 Stars for sure!

    Amy says:

    Hey Jenny! Made these and they turned out good. I made the mistake of putting the powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar with the biscuits and butter. Drizzled some sugar before it when into the over when I realized my mistake. They still taste great, but will definitely try it again soon to see what the actual taste is like! Your recipes are so great!

    Hi, this recipe is great, but the only problem is that in my country i cannot find Refrigerated Biscuits like the ones you used in this recipe.
    can you find me a substitute?
