Oh how I love monkey bread and oh how I love breakfast, I could eat it for any meal! So, monkey bread for breakfast equals perfection in my book! I decided to make them into cute little monkey muffins this time, perfect and adorable for individual servings. I first heard of monkey bread from Pillsbury, so I just adapted their recipe to suit my likings!
All you do is take a two cans of pillsbury buttermilk biscuits, cut them into quarters, roll them in melted butter, and then into a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon, and then place into muffin tins, bake, and in no time you have a delicious treat to nibble on! While the muffins are baking all you need to do is whip up a powdered sugar glaze, which makes these soooo yummy!
These little monkey muffins are so fun and so tasty and are meant to be served warm so the biscuit pieces can be easily torn apart and eaten with your fingers! These little babies melt in your mouth and are deliciously sticky and gooey. While they are baking up, the butter and sugar melts together creating a caramelly glaze. They are sweet and cinnamony and the glaze is just a wonderful topping which melts into all the cracks of the muffins. Be sure to give these a try, they are very addicting and so easy to make!
