Coming to this chocolate stuffed strawberry monkey bread,this bread goes for chocolate chips and chopped strawberries, chopped strawberries sprinkled in between the chocolate chips stuffed bread dough pieces makes this bread simple flavourful and the cinnamon sugar along with cooked strawberry chunks gives an incredible aroma to this bread.One of my favourite smells in the world is freshly baked bread, trust me the aroma of this freshly baked strawberry monkey bread was mindblowing,its just out of the world.
