To make Cream Cheese Monkey Bread, start with one of our monkey bread mixes or your favorite recipe. (You can use your favorite bread recipe to make monkey bread.) Here’s how:
- Start with an eight ounce package of cream cheese. Let it sit on the counter for about an hour to take the chill off.
- Mix the dough and make the balls in accordance with the recipe or mix directions. Count the number of balls or chunks of dough that you have. If you have 40 chunks, divide your cream cheese into 40 blocks.
- Wrap the dough around each block of cream cheese completely encasing the cheese.
- Continue making the monkey bread according to directions.
