Monkey Bread Muffins

Monkey Bread is something I never had until a few years ago. My mom found a recipe and made it for Christmas Day breakfast, and man was it good! I loved Maria's idea to make these into muffins, especially because it allows you to scale down the recipe for just two people. I made these for Bob and I for Easter breakfast. They are so delicious! Unless you're serving a huge crowd who can finish off a big bundt pan of Monkey Bread, these muffins are the way to go!

A little lop-sided but good nonetheless!

Monkey Bread Muffins

Yield: 4 muffins

1 can of refrigerated biscuits (I bought a pack of 4 cans of biscuits, with each can containing 8 very small biscuits - so I used just 1 can, which made 4 Monkey Bread Muffins)
1/4 stick butter
1/4 cup brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a muffin tin with oil or cooking spray.

2. Divide each biscuit in half and roll the dough into little balls. 

3. Combine the cinnamon and sugar to your liking. Roll the dough balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. 

4. Place four balls in each muffin cup.

5. Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small pot on the stove. Stir until melted and bubbly.

6. Pour the sauce over the muffins.

7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

8. Allow muffins to cool in pan for 1 minute. Remove muffins from pan.
