Breakfast and Brunch

Peanut Butter and Jelly Skillet Monkey Bread

Tags: , , , ,

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 🙂

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 🙂

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

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 🙂

    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 🙂

        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 🙂

  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

    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.

    I love the idea of making this in a skillet. What a fun dish to make with the kids.

    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!

  48. 48

    That is too much fun – what a creative idea! I am definitely going to try these out for brunch next weekend!
