Chocolate Apple Pie Monkey Bread – a sweet pull apart bread that tastes like apple pie drizzled with chocolate sauce. It’s ooey gooey good and so simple to make.
My love for monkey bread holds no bounds. I make monkey bread often and you can find a few recipes here for monkey bread, all different, all decadent, all delicious. If you think I’m exaggerating, don’t! It’s gooey pull apart bread loaded with whatever delicacies you can think of. In this case I paired it together with the makings of apple pie, another one of my favorites.
I think you get my point, even if I may tend to exaggerate a bit. Though honestly when you place a monkey bread in my face I could probably polish it off in no time at all, that’s how much I love these sticky gooey breads. And being Friday and all, though it’s still technically Thursday here but I know it’s Friday somewhere in the world, don’t you think you deserve this? Not that it matters what day of the week it is, you deserve this any day of the week because of who you are.
Of course if you want to simplify this recipe even further you could use apple pie filling, but I prefer fresh apples with some brown sugar and cinnamon. Trust me, they’re better. You cook them in a bit of butter for about 5 minutes and they caramelize so nicely, you might want to eat them before you add them to the monkey bread.
But I’m not always a sucker for punishment and I do love to simplify my life so I did use store bought biscuits which I just cut into quarters. I always use store bought biscuits for monkey bread, almost always, especially when I want something sweet and I want it now. You know what I mean? I know you know what I mean. I’m talking cravings here.
All you have to do is toss the apples together with the biscuit pieces and put them in a bundt pan. Bake for 45 minutes and then drizzle this bread generously, and I mean generously with chocolate sauce, again store bought. Oh yes you could use caramel sauce too, but I felt like chocolate today, chocolate and apples? Tried it before? Yum!
