This recipe has evolved from traditional monkey bread made with biscuits to being made with crescent rolls, plus chocolate chips.

This evolution is thanks to my boys. They kept talking over breakfast and changing the traditional monkey bread recipe. I’m actually just fine with that. They have given me a lot of great ideas to share on Call Me PMc.

Chocolate Chip Crescent Roll Monkey Bread

I make this pull apart recipe in individual portions in ramekins because my boys said, “This feels gourmet when you make it in these cups.”

Hey, they eat better when food is in individual portions so I’m all for it!

If you google “monkey bread”, you’ll see a lot of different ways to make it. My version has chocolate chips and starts with premade crescent roll dough. As well, I like to bake this pull-apart bread in ramekins. This cuts down on the cooking time which is great for weekday breakfasts.

Another version of monkey bread uses biscuits and a loaf pan.

Chocolate Chip Crescent Roll Monkey Bread is buttery, chocolatey and full of cinnamon. Sticky pull-apart bread is the best! Furthermore, the top gets crispy while the inside stays soft and there is always extra butter, chocolate, and cinnamon at the very bottom. That’s the equivalent to frosting on a cake! So good!
