I LOVE cherries. Fresh. plump and juicy cherries. I actually stocked up and froze a bunch of cherries and have been using them in my breakfast smoothies.
So, I figured I’d stuff them into one of my favorite treats – Monkey Bread!
I actually made this treat twice. I made it once in a full bundt pan but I wasn’t too happy with the result. Since I didn’t want to coat it in a glaze, I wasn’t pleased with the overall color of it for photos. It was still absolutely amazing to eat and everyone enjoyed it immensely! (If you are going to make a full sized bundt pan, use two containers of biscuits and double up everything.)
Then I made it a second time and just my Jumbo Muffin Pan instead. I LOVED the result. These were perfect for portion control (because God knows I need all the help I can get in that department) and they were great to keep over a few days.
It was also a bit of a labor of love. My cherry pitter decided to break on me… it wasn’t pretty, but I managed.
I loved the chocolate chips that I added on top. It wasn’t in the original plan, but man were they a great addition!
Plump cherries stuffed into the bread pieces with warm chocolate chips – I was in heaven! Enjoy!
