Cool & Creative Ways to Use Your Muffin Tins!

Monkey Bread

on April 2, 2012

I’m having a sweet craving this morning but instead of giving in I will just write about it and pass it along to you all! 😉 And trust me this one will be hard to resist! Monkey Bread in a muffin tin! Cute little individual servings of cinnamon & sugar not to mention butter, oh my goodness… soo much sweet gooey goodness packed into each tiny little cup, there should be a law against something so adorable and sweet!! YUM! Ok, now that we’re drooling all over our keyboards… let’s get into it, shall we?  Lol!

This first recipe was sent to me by my friend Jennifer, Thank you my dear! 🙂


Easy Monkey Bread Muffins Recipe by Audrey at Break It, Make It, or Bake It


  • 3 (12 oz) packages of refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)


Heat Oven to 350 degrees. Put foil liners into muffin tin (I figured foil would be better than paper)

Mix sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into thirds, and then cut into smaller pieces. Shake biscuit pieces in plastic bag and add all pieces to 1 muffin cup. Continue until all biscuits are gone or muffin tins are full. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Spoon 1 teaspoon of mixture over each muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 17 minutes.

There are LOTS more great pics at the where Audrey posted her recipe, I just couldn’t post them all here 🙂

Sweet Mini Monkey Rolls


12 Rhodes™ Dinner rolls, thawed but still cold
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons corn syrup
½ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1-2 tablespoons milk
½ teaspoon vanilla

Cut each dinner roll into 6 equal pieces. In a bowl, combine butter and corn syrup and stir until well mixed. In another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Dip 6 roll pieces at a time in the butter mixture and then in the sugar mixture. Place 6 pieces in each well sprayed cup of a 12 cup muffin tin. Repeat with remaining roll pieces. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let double in size. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes. Cool 3-4 minutes before removing from pan. Combine icing ingredients and mix well. Drizzle over monkey breads if desired.



Don’t those look just look scrumptious?!!!!! You REALLY need to go to the Link above to see the rest of the pics there were so many good ones it was hard to choose which ones to post! 🙂

And because I love you guys so much here’s a link to the Rhodes Product Locator, so you can see if they are available in your area 🙂 If they are not I’m sure you can substitute your favorite brand of dinner rolls 😉

So now that we are all craving Monkey Bread… grab your muffin tins and start baking… anyone who lives close enough to deliver I will happily accept donations and try out your recipes! 😉
