Campfire Chocolate Monkey Bread

For those of you that missed the first post, I have started a summer-long camping series designed to provide you with easy tips, tricks, and recipes for a stress-free camping adventure! Today were are going to be continuing on with some camping recipes and making some ooey-gooey campfire monkey bread…

This tasty treat is easy to prepare and is always lots of fun for the kids to help prepare {of course very close supervision around the fire is required}.  I always stick the dry ingredients in a ziploc prior to heading out camping so prep time is quite minimal.

This chocolate monkey bread can be done right over the campfire and is SO delicious!
Part of the fun with camping, is cooking over the fire and pie irons provide such an endless amount of recipe options.   I must say that this chocolate monkey breads is one of my favorites though.

Campfire Chocolate Monkey Bread
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
This ooey, gooey chocolate monkey bread can be made right over the campfire!
  • 2 packages of Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 package chocolate cook and serve pudding mix {NOT instant pudding}
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • cooking spray
  1. Prior to camping, place the brown sugar, pudding mix, and sugar into a large Ziploc bag.
  2. At the campsite, prepare the campfire and allow to burn for at least 30-60 minutes to create hot coals.
  3. Cut up the biscuits into quarters. Drop into the Ziploc bag and completely cover.
  4. Melt the butter and pour over the biscuits. Seal the bag and shake again. The biscuits should appear very gooey. The pie iron will tend to dry them out so you want them well covered.
  5. Spray both sides of the pie iron well with cooking spray. This recipe will fill 2 double sized pie irons.
  6. Place the biscuits on the pie iron and spoon any remaining mixture over top to coat further {make sure you save some for the second batch!} You can also try adding this half way through cooking if you like it a little more sticky.
  7. Close the pie iron and place in the hot coals for approximately 10-12 minutes turning and rotating frequently. {We found that it worked best if we flipped the pie iron over as well as rotating it around the coals so the front of the pie iron was not always facing the same direction}

    I don’t camp… you happen to have directions to bake this such as size of the pan to use, temperature and length of time for baking. I would LOVE to try this

      I haven’t done it in the oven but I would use an angel food cake pan and just follow the temperature/baking time on the package directions for the dough. Let me know if it works out!
