Nutella and Cream Cheese Stuffed Monkey Bread Recipe

Nutella and Cream Cheese Stuffed Monkey Bread Recipe

  • Author: Mila Furman
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


  • 2 packages of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits (8ct)
  • 1 package of cream cheese (cut up into 32 cubes)
  • 3/4 cup Nutella plus another 1/2 cup
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 a cup of brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees and spray or butter a bundt cake pan.
  2. Open up the can of biscuits and cut each biscuit into halves.
  3. Lay the biscuit flat on a cutting board and stretch it out with your hands so that it is round and about the size of a wonton wrapper maybe a tad bigger.
  4. Place one cube of cream cheese in the center and a dallop of Nutella, about 1 tsp.
  5. Bring all the 4 corners together and seal so you have a perfect little ball. Continue doing this for the remaining pieces.
  6. Place half a cup of Nutella, 1 stick of butter and half a cup of sugar into the microwave in 30 seconds increments so that it melts evenly. It took me about 60 seconds. This is your glaze.
  7. Add cinnamon and 1 cup of sugar to a ziplock bag.
  8. Place all the balls in the bag about 10 at a time and shake them up, ensuring they are all covered.
  9. Easy, gooey and tender monkey bread made with store bought dough and stuffed with Nutella and cream cheese!
  10. Now start assembling.
  11. Place 1/3 of the glaze onto the bottom of the bundt pan. Add in 1/ 2 of the monkey balls.
  12. Add another 1/3 of the glaze on top and cover with remaining balls. Pour the remaining glaze on top.
  13. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until gloriously brown and bubbly.
  14. Let cool for 10 minutes and then invert onto plate. Serve while still warm.
