Camping Tip, Tricks and Recipes – 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 making some ooey-gooey campfire monkey bread…

  • 2 packages of Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 package chocolate cook and serve pudding mix {NOT instant pudding}
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • cooking spray


  • Prior to camping, place the brown sugar, pudding mix, and sugar into a large Ziploc bag.   
  • At the campsite, prepare the campfire and allow to burn for at least 30-60 minutes to create hot coals.
  • Cut up the biscuits into quarters.  Drop into the Ziploc bag and completely cover.
  • 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.  
  • Spray both sides of the pie iron well with cooking spray.  This recipe will fill 2 double sized pie irons.
  • 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.  
  • 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}  
    Then just serve and enjoy!

    This post is part of my summer long Camping 101 Series.
