Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Breakfast Ring

I always try to plan out all of my recipes for Christmas a few weeks in advance.  I like to have a list of the things we're going to make and bake for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  After that, a grocery list is made.  This year, due to traveling I wasn't on top of my lists.  Thankfully, I was able to throw together a menu and list this past Monday thanks to Pinterest.  I went through my Breakfast, Christmas, Appetizer and Drink boards and made my menu.  

I have a handful of tasty recipes to share with you over the next few weeks.  I'm happy to report that all of the recipes I chose for the holiday were a success.  The first one I've decided to share was the Christmas breakfast recipe.  My dad always makes bacon and eggs.  I decided this breakfast ring would be the perfect final touch for the meal.  Who doesn't like something sweet along with their bacon and eggs?!?  

I used a bunt cake pan to make this ring.  I used Pam instead of butter.  I honestly felt the recipe would be just as good with half the butter.  I also didn't use all of the pudding mix.  Those are the only suggested changes I would recommend.  It was easy to make.  My icing was running because I didn't wait long enough for the cake to cool, but it was really good warm.  The entire family gave this recipe two thumbs up.  They even suggested I make it again next year.  This would also be a great recipe for a brunch or coffee date.  Enjoy!
