Peanut Butter and Jelly Skillet Monkey Bread

Break out the biscuits, because 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!

What You’ll Need

  • canned biscuits– Find the canned biscuits in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. I generally use Pillsbury.
  • butter– You can use salted or unsalted butter for this recipe.
  • granulated sugar– The sugar will help sweeten the biscuits used for the monkey bread.
  • creamy peanut butter– I use a creamy peanut butter for this recipe that will get warmed in the microwave for easy drizzling.
  • strawberry preserves/jam-Strawberry jam is great, but any fruit flavored jam will work great. It’s also warmed up slightly for easy drizzling over the monkey bread.
  • powdered sugar– You’ll use the powdered sugar to make the simple drizzle that goes over the monkey bread.
  • heavy cream– The heavy cream is added to the powdered sugar to make the drizzle/icing.

How To Make Easy Monkey Bread Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray 9-inch cast iron skillet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Cut each biscuit into fourths. Place melted butter into a large ziplock bag and toss in cut biscuits. Shake around to coat then toss in sugar, mixing to combine. Pour into prepared 9-inch cast iron skillet and drizzle warmed peanut butter and jelly over top.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through and golden.
  4. Whisk the heavy cream and powdered sugar until combined then drizzle over warm biscuits. Serve warm.

Start by cutting each biscuit into fourths. Pour melted butter into bottom of large ziplock and add cut biscuits. Add sugar and carefully shake biscuits with butter sugar, making sure they’re coated well. Transfer to a cast iron skillet that’s been sprayed lightly with cooking spray.

Place peanut butter into a heat proof bowl and microwave for 30 seconds or until slightly melted. Stir and drizzle over top of monkey bread pieces in cast iron skillet. Do the same with the strawberry jam. Warm up in a heat proof bowl and then drizzle over top of the peanut butter layer. Bake in a 350 degree F. preheated oven for 35-30 minutes, or until baked through and golden brown. Remove from oven.

While monkey bread is still warm, drizzle with icing. This is such a delicious treat. Can’t wait for you to try it!

How To Serve Easy Monkey Bread

Serve the monkey bread while it’s warm and gooey. Spoon some into individual bowls. It’s even good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Can I Save Leftovers?

While the monkey bread is best enjoyed after it’s baked, you can save leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat as needed.

  4. Meagan @ Scarletta Bakes

    Oh no. Oh no. Oh no.

  6. jen @ the baked life

    mmmm This looks really good.

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

  7. Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean

    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!

  8. Sues

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

  9. sylvie

    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?

      1. sylvie

        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!

  10. d.liff

    This looks so good! I need to buy a cast iron skillet – and as soon as I do this is one of the first things I will make with it!
