PB & J Monkey Bread

Clearly summer has hit in full force! My husband is working 10-14 hour days which leave me running endlessly after my two little ones. Which I love doing but none the less is tiring. So when it came time for me to bring something to contribute to bible study breakfast I knew it needed to be something that I had on hand and something that was super easy! 

I found this recipe and thought it could be a real winner! It was a unique approach to pb & j and came together in a breeze. It transports you right back to when you were a child and pb & j's was pretty much all you would eat. It would be great for an after school snack or a quick breakfast treat. 





PB & J Monkey Bread
10 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold

2 tablespoons sugar

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup jelly(I used homemade strawberry rhubarb)

Cut each roll into fourths and roll into sugar. Place dough pieces into a greased 10 inch pie plate. Heat the peanut butter for 20 seconds and drizzle over top of dough pieces. Next microwave jam for 30 seconds and drizzle over dough as well. Cover dough with sprayed plastic wrap and let rolls double in size. (I made mine the night before and just stuck it into the over the next morning) Place on a baking sheet just in case anything drips over and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Enjoy with a nice cup of cold milk if you really want to be transported back to your childhood :)
