Mini Monkey Bread
monkey bread ingredients:
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 can (7.5 oz each) refrigerated biscuits
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray 12 regular muffin cups. Mix 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar; spoon 1 tablespoon into each muffin cup. Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon in quart bag. I found mixing half at a time was best. Separate dough into 20 biscuits; cut each in 6 pieces. Add pieces to the bag and shake to coat (I actually did a handful of biscuit pieces at a time so the biscuits wouldn’t stick together in the bag before I had time to shake them around. If you run out of sugar/cinnamon mix just make another batch). Place 8-10 pieces in each muffin cup. Mix 1/2 a cup of melted butter with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and spoon over the top of biscuits. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minutes and spoon out. Serve warm.
I got the recipe from this website and modified it a bit.
