For the Bread:

  • 3 cans cinnamon roll dough regular size cans
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon gingerbread spice
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup [Gingerbread Syrup]
  • Gingerbread cookie crumbles optional

For the Glaze:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover bundt pan with a layer of non-stick spray and set aside.
  • Open and separate cinnamon buns. Cut each bun into quarters. Sed aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine white sugar, brown sugar, and gingerbread spice. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese frosting and gingerbread syrup. Blend until combined. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir well to combine melted butter and gingerbread syrup.
  • Dip each piece of cinnamon roll dough into the melted butter and syrup mixture. Then, roll the dough through the sugar mixture until well coated and place it into the bundt pan.
  • When the bundt pan is half full, drizzle with half of the glaze.
  • After filling bundt pan, bake for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown and no longer doughy.
  • Remove pan from oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. Then, put a serving platter or large plate on top of the bundt pan and turn the monkey bread over onto the platter. Give the top of the pan a few hard taps to help release the sticky monkey bread.
  • Drizzle the remaining glaze over the top of the monkey bread. If desired, sprinkle crumbled gingerbread cookies on top. Enjoy!
