Mmm Mmm Monday~

Here is another tasty easy-peasy recipe. It is a take off of Monkey bread. Well.... I made it into Monkey muffins! I used an apple slicer to cut up the biscuits into little cute bits which I then placed into muffin cups. Here is the recipe:

Monkey Muffins~
4 tubes refrigerated biscuit dough (get the cheapest)
2/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix 2/3 cup white sugar with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in a bowl. Open 1 can of biscuits and using one of those apple cutters that cuts and cores an apple into 8ths... cut each biscuit. I placed two cut up biscuits at a time into the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Once those were tossed and totally covered with the sugar and cinnamon I placed the biscuit bits into one muffin cup. So, two biscuits equal one muffin...(my muffins are biggins!) If your wanting a normal sized muffin, I would suggest only putting about 1 & 1/2 of one biscuit into each muffin cup. One biscuit per muffin cup would work as well... but then you'd just have to eat twice as many now wouldn't you~ Do this for all the remaining biscuits. Once the muffins cups are filled, bring to a boil the butter and the brown sugar and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Spoon the butter/sugar over the biscuit pieces-- it was about 1 tablespoon per muffin cup. I also added walnuts on top of each muffin... might as well right?
Heat up your oven at 350 degrees and bake for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown. Sure the paper sticks to the muffin here and there... but just consider that exercise while your eating it. Good thinking huh~
