Ok, so these are not at all diet friendly or have any nutritional value. In fact, I kinda felt like I was channeling Paula Dean through this recipe, given the large amounts of butter, sugar, and processed foods. With that being said, they are addictive and oh so yummy! So next time you want to treat yourself to something decadent and easy to make, try this recipe out for size. Enjoy!!!
Mini Monkey Bread "Cupcakes"
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 pkg pillsbury grand buttermilk biscuits
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a muffin tin (either with cooking spray or more butter - hey, why not?).
Combine melted butter and brown sugar and spoon 1 tablespoon into the bottom of each muffin cup.
In a large ziplock bag, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon. Then cut each biscuit into 6 pieces, (there are 8 biscuits in a package, so it yields 48 pieces). Toss the biscuit pieces in the cinnamon sugar mixture until well coated. Place 4 pieces into each muffin cup and press down. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow them to sit in the pan for 1 minute, then invert them onto a large dish (the caramel created from the butter and brown sugar will ooze over the top of each "cupcake"). Serve warm and enjoy!
