  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease or spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan.
  • 2
    Separate 2 cans (7.5 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated buttermilk biscuits into total of 20 biscuits. Split each biscuit in half; press each to even layer. Top 20 of the biscuit halves with 1 milk chocolate candy drop or piece each, and the other 20 with a teaspoon dough from 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ peanut butter cookie dough. Bring sides of biscuits up and over filling, pinching dough at seams to enclose filling.
  • 3
    Melt 1/4 cup butter. Dip balls into melted butter, then roll in 1/2 cup sugar. Place balls, seam side up, in pan.
  • 4
    Bake about 30 minutes or until tops of biscuits are golden brown and dough is cooked through. Immediately turn pan upside down onto serving platter; tap pan to let any pieces fall that might have stuck.
  • 5
    Microwave 5 chocolate candy drops or pieces in small microwavable bowl uncovered on High in 20-second increments until melted and can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over monkey bread; serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • Use semisweet chocolate morsels in place of the chocolate candy drops.
  • Use any leftover peanut butter cookie dough and candies to make traditional Peanut Butter Blossoms! Just roll tablespoonfuls of cookie dough in sugar, and bake 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Immediately press a chocolate candy in center of each, and let cool on rack.
