Before I bake something, I usually ask myself four questions:
- How delicious?
- How hard?
- How much time?
- How easy to clean up?
The answers I hope for are: heavenly, simple, quick, and a snap.
And guess what? I have found it—the perfect dessert recipe... Chocolate Caramel Peanut Monkey Bread!
Who doesn't love Snickers -- the combo of chocolate, peanuts, and caramel?
Plus, this recipe is simple to make, ooey-gooey delicious, and, because I used PAM Cooking Spray, a breeze to clean up!
Chocolate Caramel Peanut Monkey Bread
- Servings: 12
- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- Cooking Time: 35 minutes
- 2 containers of biscuit dough
- 3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup crushed peanuts
- PAM Cooking Spray
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Cut each piece of biscuit dough into quarters. Toss the pieces in granulated sugar to coat, and stir in half the chocolate chips.
Put the butter in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat on high for about 30 seconds. Stir in the brown sugar and microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat one more time and you should have a nice basic caramel sauce.
Here comes the most important step. Spray PAM Cooking Spray liberally inside a 12-cup fluted or Bundt cake pan. Coat every inch. The sugar will want to stick to your pan, but if you really cover it, it will help keep the monkey bread from sticking.
Add the biscuit pieces to the pan, and pour the caramel sauce over the top. Bake for 25 minutes. While the pan is still hot, carefully turn the pan over onto your serving plate.
On top, I sprinkled the crushed peanuts and remaining chocolate chips! And it turned out so sweet, chewy, sticky, crunchy, chocolaty, salty, and delicious!
Nothing depresses me more than spending lots of time in the kitchen cleaning up. As a mom, I guess it comes with the territory, but because I used PAM in this recipe, nothing stuck, and I was able to clean everything up super quick.
Delicious dessert + easy clean up = happy Mommy!
With all the planning that goes into putting together the perfect dish, using PAM Cooking Spray is a sensible way to save time in the kitchen. When you use PAM, you spend less time cleaning up in the kitchen, allowing for more time to be spent with the ones you love. Bonus? PAM Cooking Spray leaves 99% less residue than leading brands of margarine or bargain-brand sprays, so your dishes will turn out great and you’ll spend less time cleaning up.
*vs. leading cooking sprays (except olive oil), after spraying on glass bakeware, baking at 400°F for 30 minutes, cooling, and then washing in a standard home dishwasher with detergent and repeating four times.
