I had been thinking about doing a twist on good ol' gooey and delicious monkey bread. But what could possibly make monkey bread any better than it is? Then it occurred to me. CREAM CHEESE! It makes everything better, right? A few months after I had that thought, I saw in a magazine that someone had my same idea. I figured I had better hurry up and make it myself, so here we go!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine:
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Cut 20 cubes into an 8-ounce block of cream cheese.
Slice 10 discs of dough from each of two 12-ounce tubes of refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits. You will have 20 total dough discs. Set the discs on a flat surface and place one cube of cream cheese into the center of each piece of dough.
Wrap the edges of the dough up and around each cube of cream cheese.
Melt 3/4 cup of butter in a small bowl in the microwave. Set aside.
Place 10 of the dough-wrapped cream cheese cubes, cheese-side-up, into the bottom of the prepared pan.
Top with half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture and half of the melted butter.
Top with the remaining dough-wrapped cream cheese cubes, cheese-side-down, and the remaining sugar mixture and butter.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter and serve warm! Cover and refrigerate leftovers for up to 3 days.
