  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a Bundt pan or 12-cup fluted tube with butter or cooking spray. In a large gallon-size food storage bag or large bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  • 2
    Separate dough biscuits into 16 biscuits (8 biscuits per can); cut each biscuit into quarters, making 32 pieces.
  • 3
    Add dough pieces a few at a time to bag (or bowl) of cinnamon sugar. Shake in bag to coat the dough. Arrange coated dough pieces in prepared Bundt pan.
  • 4
    In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and melted butter; pour mixture over biscuit pieces.
  • 5
    Place the Bundt pan on a baking sheet. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in the center.
  • 6
    Meanwhile, add strawberries and butter to a saucepan and set on medium heat. Cook, stirring often until strawberries are soft. Add strawberries, strawberry jam and white chocolate chips (the heat from the strawberries will melt the white chocolate) to a blender and blend until completely smooth. Next, add 2 cups powdered sugar and blend again until smooth. If needed, add remaining 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to thicken the glaze.
  • 7
    Remove the Bundt pan from oven. Allow bread to cool inverted in the pan for 10 minutes. Carefully invert pan onto a serving plate.
  • 8
    Drizzle strawberry glaze over monkey bread. You may not need to use all of the glaze. Sprinkle with Valentine's Day sprinkles and serve warm.

Expert Tips

For a chocolate version, try stuffing Nutella™ into the dough balls.

More About This Recipe
I don't think there could be anything sweeter for Valentine's Day breakfast than this strawberry glazed monkey bread. It's the ultimate way to let someone know how special they are!

This year Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday, which obviously means you need a super sweet and festive breakfast to celebrate and start the day off right!

Therefore, today I’m going to show you this Valentine Monkey Bread. It's perfectly sweet and so fun! The glaze is made of strawberries, butter, white chocolate and powdered sugar... and the strawberries make for the most lusciously pink glaze. For the monkey bread itself, I used my base recipe of Pillsbury® Biscuits, cinnamon sugar and just a little butter.

Sounds totally delicious, right?! It is! And here’s how you make it:

Grab your biscuits, then cut each biscuit into quarters. You will need two cans of Grands!® Flaky Layers Original Biscuits.

Add the biscuits to a bag of cinnamon sugar (1/2 cup granulated sugar, mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon) and toss to coat completely.

Arrange the pieces in a greased Bundt pan and then pour over the butter. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden on the top and no longer doughy.

Meanwhile gather up your ingredients for the glaze. Add the strawberries and butter to a sauce pan and simmer until the strawberries are soft. Add the hot strawberries, strawberry jam/jelly and white chocolate to a blender and blend until smooth. The heat from the strawberries will melt the white chocolate. Add the powdered sugar and blend again.

When the monkey bread is done, invert it onto your serving plate and let it sit in the pan inverted for 10 minutes.

Now remove the pan and drizzle on the strawberry glaze.

Add some Valentine's Day sprinkles.

EAT! Happy Valentine's Day breakfast!
