Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread with Eggnog Glaze

This easy Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread has the subtle flavor of eggnog for a delicious holiday treat!

I host Christmas dinner at my house every year. The tradition began a few years ago: my mom hosts Thanksgiving, my sister takes Christmas Eve and I take Christmas Day. I make my prime rib and carrot soufflé every year. And now I have a new favorite for Christmas morning, too!

Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread with an Eggnog Glaze

This Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread is gooey and soft and gets devoured within seconds around here. It only takes a few minutes to make so it’s perfect for Christmas morning; you don’t want a recipe that will hold up opening gifts! I’ve given this version a holiday twist by adding a small amount of eggnog to the batter and then to the icing which makes a creamy glaze that’s perfect. The eggnog flavor is subtle so feel free to serve it to non-eggnog lovers, too.

Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread with an Eggnog Glaze

I picked up my Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls at Walmart. It’s so simple to pop in and do some Christmas and grocery shopping at one time. I stocked up on these cinnamon rolls so that I can make this easy Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread all season long! My girls have even taken some to school for a treat. You should see their eyes light up when they smell what’s in the oven! Just wait until I have it ready for them on Christmas morning :)

Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread with Eggnog Glaze

  • 3 packages Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 T eggnog; divided
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Cut cinnamon rolls into four quarters each. Place sugar and cinnamon in a large, resealable plastic bag, shake to mix. Place cinnamon rolls in bag and shake to coat. Place in a greased bundt pan.
  3. Mix together melted butter, brown sugar and 2 T egg nog; pour over cinnamon roll dough pieces in pan. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until nicely browned and cooked through. Immediately flip onto serving plate.
  4. Mix together icing from cinnamon roll package and remaining 2 T eggnog (I sometimes double the eggnog here which makes the glaze much thinner but has a more prominent eggnog flavor). Serve immediately.
