This simple eggnog monkey bread recipe is the ultimate holiday dessert! It’s very simple to make, but it has amazing flavor. It’s a great non-pie dessert!

Until about three days ago, I had never tried eggnog before.
I’m pretty sure my mom doesn’t like egg nog, so it wasn’t something we had around our house. During one of the first Christmas’s that Forrest and I were married, he was so shocked that there was no eggnog at our house…so he went out and bought some. I’m pretty sure he was the only person in the house that drank any.
For some reason, it just seemed unappealing. I figured it would taste like raw eggs.
Well, I was wrong. The other day, when I finally tried some (after being married to an eggnog fan for almost five years), I actually liked it.
I like it so much, I decided to make a dessert out of it. And it sure is a good one.
You’ve heard of monkey bread right? It’s a pretty delicious dessert. So, I thought it would be fun to make a more festive version of monkey bread using eggnog. I wasn’t entirely sure how it would turn out…but I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it straight out of the oven. It was good. So good.
It’s such a simple dessert to make – it’s perfect for the busy holiday season. I used some of Pillsbury™Butter Tastin biscuits, because, well…can you really ever have enough butter (okay, don’t answer that.) I felt like it gave the monkey bread an even more moist and yummy flavor.
I just picked them up at my local Safeway store, along with a few other simple ingredients, and in less than an hour, we had a rather tasty dessert. This would be great for a non-pie dessert for Thanksgiving!
