    Awesome!

    Acsa Buening from Hartland, WI

    Loved it - had to keep the kids away from it so there would be some left for Daddy! It does take a little while to get it together but definitely worth it!

    Chocolate-Filled Monkey Bread

    Linda Baesler from Palm Bay, FL

    Very easy to make and absolutely delicious! I used milk chocolate chips and caramel bits instead of semi-sweet chips. Use a tube pan instead of a bundt pan--mine overflowed while baking. It was an overwhelming hit at home and at work.

    Different Tastes

    Thomas S. Fitzpatrick from GLENNVILLE, GA

    I made this in secret for my grandaughters, with one change. I added peanut butter morsels in some and butterscotch in others along with the chocolate ones seperately. The only question was why did I only make one. Have fun and spread the joy.

    Mary Baric from TRAFFORD, PA

    I love this recipe, I use the instant butterscotch pudding and shake it dry over the buttered rolls, simply delicious. also can be made the night before, place the rolls in pan alternating the layer of rolls with the butterscotch, I also use the sugar free, cuts the calories a little bit for this yummy recipe.

    Chocolatey Good!

    Wende Barry from East Amherst, NY

    Made this for a brunch meeting today....everyone loved it. Have made monkey bread for years, but this satisfied everyone's chocolate cravings too! It was easy to make and I will certainly make it again. The family was upset because it was gone by the time they got home, so looks like I'm making it for the weekend for them to enjoy. Thanks for a new twist on an old favorite.
