Caramel Apple Campfire Monkey Bread

Create this fantastic Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Campfire Monkey Bread on your next camping trip.

I am starting out with a great Dutch Oven Monkey Bread recipe that we discovered at a camping rally.

One of the attendees made this delicious dessert which was devoured quickly. It is one of those that sticks in your mind so we made it when we camped this past weekend.

Our friends got this recipe from the Rhodes Bread website.

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread Recipe

Prepare your coals and dutch oven.

We like to use parchment paper liners. You can buy some here or just make your own using this tutorial.

Cut the Rhodes rolls in fourths and put them into the Dutch oven. You can see ours looked very globby. I think they were a little more thawed than the recipe called for but they turned out fine!

Mix the apples (we left our peels on…YUM!), brown sugar, cinnamon, graham crackers, and pecans and pour them on top of the rolls.

Cover with lid and bake at 350°F 25-30 minutes, which is approximately 18 briquets on top and 10 on the bottom.

This may vary depending on the size of your Dutch oven. This is what it looked like when it was done baking!

We just wanted to eat it at this point.

Add the Icing

Mix up the icing, which is 2 icing packets (included with the rolls) and 1/3 cup caramel, and pour it on top of the baked good-ness.

add the caramel topping

At this point, we put the lid back on and let it sit for about 10 mins so that the icing could really soak in.

This is a YUMMY recipe that can also be made at home.

We ended up using 3 icing packets and more than 1/3 of a cup of caramel. It was SUPER rich.

Next time we will decrease that icing amount and increase the apples and the pecans.

This Dutch oven monkey bread recipe makes a big amount so make sure you have a hungry bunch!!
