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.

    You should tag this under ‘cast iron skillet’. I was searching for something sweet to make in mine and almost missed this recipe!

    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?
    PS: i live in Albania, a small country in the Balkans ( Europe )

    thanks

    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!

  4. Meghan @ StruggleMuffins

    Oh wow. I would love to make this but I don’t know if I could because I don’t trust myself to not scarf down the ENTIRE thing.

  5. Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels

    Oh my word do I need this in my life right now! I LOVE that you put it in a skillet, how creative. And of course anything with peanut butter and jelly is calling my name. I am in love with this recipe. 🙂

    I make a similar version of this delight- except I use Nutella instead of PB—
    It is delish, isn’t it??
    ENJOY your day. Can’t wait for the cookbook.

    I still want to try this! Just posted my Peanut Butter Cupcakes with PB&J flavored Buttercream today! It’s PB&J time! 🙂

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

    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!

    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.

    Thanks 🙂
