Awesome, Amazing, Easy Dessert

IMAG3229[1]

My “monkeybread” recipe has been a hit at many parties, but now I’ve developed an even more amazing, adult, version…

So easy and delicious!!

* 1 package frozen cinnamon rolls

* 3 apples

* a box of dates

* butter

*  dark chocolate chips

* coffee liqueur

* vanilla flavoring

* Spices: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, dried orange peel

Pre-heat oven to 350, grease a 9×13 nonstick cake pan.

Use a pair of sharp kitchen scissors to cut the cinnamon rolls into 4ths (easier to do while slightly frozen) and put into a large mixing bowl.  Cut apples into 1/2″ cubes, toss in the mixing bowl.  Cut a bunch of dates into 3-4 pieces each (I like lots of dates), and toss them in too.  Toss in about a cup of chocolate chips.  Add a generous sprinkle of cinnamon, a light dash of nutmeg, a generous tablespoon of vanilla, and a quarter cup of coffee liqueur.  Add ginger and orange peel if you want – about half a teaspoon of ginger, and 1-2 tablespoons of dried orange peel.  Toss all of this together, mixing thoroughly.

Pour into the greased pan.  Add a few slivers of butter on top and tucked in all around.  Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown (about 45min – depending on your oven and how frozen the rolls were when you started).

Serve warm.

I don’t top with anything, but feel free to add cream cheese frosting, or coffee icing, or…?

YUM!!!
