Peanut Butter Cup Monkey Bread Ingredients

Kendrick made the monkey bread with pre-made biscuit dough and miniature peanut butter cups.

He cut each biscuit in half, flattened the dough and placed a peanut butter cup in the center of each before rolling the dough into a ball. Kendrick placed each dough into a Bundt cake pan when completed.

Next, he poured a butter and brown sugar glaze he prepared into the pan, making sure to coat all the dough. 

The Peanut Butter Cup Monkey Bread was then placed in a wood pellet grill for 50 minutes at 330 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fox News Digital reached out to Kendrick for comment on whether the recipe can be made in ovens and air fryers.

When the monkey bread finished cooking, Kendrick flipped the pastry upside down on a plate and poured a peanut butter glaze, which he made with peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk on an induction cooktop.
