The holiday season can be stressful with all of the parties, recipes, presents to wrap, and seasonal activities for the kids! Despite that, I love nothing more than entertaining during the holidays. We love hosting get-togethers and holiday parties; spending time with family and friends is a must for everyone in our family.

Crockpot Monkey Bread Cinnamon Rolls Ingredients
There are some recipes that seem like they require a lot of different ingredients. Those recipes exist, there are dishes you can make that look like a lot of work and are a lot of work. But then there are other dishes like this crockpot monkey bread recipe.
It looks more complicated than it is. In fact, all you need to make this recipe is a couple of cans of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls and a can of sweet dark cherries.
Crockpot Monkey Bread Cinnamon Rolls Directions:
Open each can of cinnamon rolls. Reserve the icing. Cut each roll into 4 pieces.
Cover crockpot with parchment paper and spray nonstick cooking spray.
Place the dough pieces on the bottom of the crockpot to create a layer.
Pour the dark sweet cherries into a small bowl and mash gently with a potato masher to create small pieces of cherries.
Layer the remaining dough pieces on top of the first layer and spoon or pour the remaining cherry mixture on the dough.
Cover crockpot and cook on high for about 2 hours. (check it at the hour, then again at one and a half hours, just to be safe.) The edges will start to brown, and the dough will rise when done. Each crockpot will cook at a different rate so keep an eye on it.
Drizzle the icing that came with the rolls over the top of the monkey bread.
I hope you and your guests enjoy this delicious Crockpot monkey bread recipe!
