Slow Cooker Turtle Monkey Bread


EASY EASY EASY!!!! Even in my HUGE and far oversized Crockpot!! It was an EASY recipe to modify…I just doubled the recipe for my 7 qt Crockpot and added 10-15 minutes…worked like a CHARM.
If you have a smaller one than recommended, either increase the time or half the recipe. PLAY, EXPERIMENT! That’s half the fun of “trying” a new recipe!! Stop giving this a poor rating if you haven’t TRIED it…it’s unfair to others who may stray away from this great recipe due to the lower rating!

This was so good my family and freinds asked me to make it again and again. Love how easy it is to make. I was having guest over and put it in the crock pot before their arrival and was ready when it was time for dessert! One guest told me they were going to buy me another crock pot so I could make two next time!


We love this monkey bread! Turned out just like the photo, I was so excited! I set timer for 1 1/2 hours on high, perfectly done. Then layer paper towel under lid for 15 minutes. Next time I’ll try caramel sauce!



2/3 c. brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
16.3 oz. Grands biscuits
3/4 c. pecan halves, divided
2 T. whipping cream
1/3 c. milk chocolate chips



1 Spray a 5 quart slow cooker with non stick cooking spray.
2 Combine brown sugar and butter in a microwavable measuring bowl, microwave uncovered on High for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until brown sugar and butter is smooth.
3 Combine granulated sugar and cinnamon in a resealable plastic bag. Separate dough into 8 biscuits; cut each into fourths. Add a few of the biscuit pieces at a time to bag; shake to coat. Scant 1/4 c. of the pecans in slow cooker; top with half of the biscuit mixture. Pour one-third of the butter mixture over biscuits in cooker. Repeat with 1/4 c. pecans and remaining biscuit mixture. Pour remaining butter mixture over biscuits, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 c. pecans.
4 Place 5-7 paper towels under the lid to collect the condensation.
5 Cover. Cook on High for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until knife inserted in center comes out clean and biscuits are no longer doughy in center. (Optional: For even crocking, halfway through crocking time, twist crock around half way.) Tops of biscuits will be moist. Turn off cooker.
6 Replace with paper towels and lid, letting stand for 10 minutes.
7 While monkey bread is standing for 10 minutes, heat cream just to boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate chips until smooth or heat hot fudge to drizzle over the bread.
8 Run a knife around edge of crock; turn bread upside down onto heatproof serving plate.
9 Drizzle chocolate over monkey bread.
