Peanut Butter, Chocolate & Bacon Stuffed Monkey Bread the ultimate breakfast treat perfect for Christmas morning! Plus a special Petit Jean Meats Giveaway.
Sometimes I get really hungry and I head into the kitchen and get these crazy ideas. Most of the time they turn into something pretty good. This time is was more than pretty good, it was amazing, best thing I ever ate, crazy good.
You see over the weekend we were iced in.
Hello, I moved to the south to escape crazy winter. I want my money back! Okay not really, but the ice damage is horrendous. We were out of power for a while but after about 24 hours we were back in business. I was feeling pretty pioneer-like when I made lunch on the wood stove.
When the power came back on I got in the kitchen and started to make some donuts out of canned biscuits. I didn't really want to fry anything and there was this chocolate bar staring at me from the counter. I guess it inspired me to make Peanut Butter, Chocolate & Bacon Stuffed Monkey Bread. Best thing ever!
Monkey bread is so good and let me tell you when it is stuffed with Petit Jean Peppered Bacon a little chunk of chocolate and some peanut butter chips, it becomes something amazing.
A perfect treat for special occasions like Christmas morning. I always try to have something the kids can snack on before we have a big holiday dinner and this monkey bread is just the ticket. It is impossible to eat just one.
I've mentioned many times before I am a proud ambassador for Petit Jean Meats. Earlier this year I participated in their Random Acts of Kindness program. I was able to choose a family that could use a little something extra and Petit Jean Meats delivered a gift box of their fantastic products to this family. I was so thrilled to be part of something so kind and generous.

- 6 slices Petit Jean Peppered Bacon, cooked and drained on a paper towel

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut biscuits into quarters.
Slice bacon into 32 pieces
Spray a cake pan or pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.
Flatten each biscuit quarter slightly. Add a piece of bacon, a chunk of chocolate and about 3 or 4 peanut butter chips to the center. Fold dough around bacon mixture and press the seams together. Roll into a ball and set aside. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a medium size bowl.
Dip each dough ball into butter and roll in sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place in baking pan. Squeeze them together as necessary.
Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of sugar and cinnamon evenly over the top.
