Monkey Bread Bites

Monkey Bread and Monkey Bread Bites- 
the kissing cousins in delicious breakfast treats!

 Read over this expert advice before beginning with my rigged version of a family favorite:

  • You will need: 
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 8-count cans cinnamon rolls
  • 1 8-count can of biscuits
  • 1/2 cup butter- stick form works best
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • Cooking spray or butter
  • Mixing bowl/ Gallon size storage bag
  • Muffin pan (Monkey Bread Bites) or Bundt cake pan (Monkey Bread)

Preheat your oven to 325. 

To make the bites first you need to grease your muffin pan (or Bundt cake pan if you are doing Monkey Bread)... LOTS of butter!

Next mix your sugar and cinnamon. This can be done in a bowl or a Gallon size storage bag.

Now for the kicker- I use a combo of cinnamon rolls and biscuits! Cut each cinnamon roll/biscuits into 4 parts, roll around in the cinnamon/sugar mixture 
then plop into your muffin pan (or Bundt cake pan).

Once you have half of your cinnamon rolls cut up you need to combine the brown sugar and butter on the stove top. Let this come to a low boil while you finish up your "chopping".

Take whatever you have left of the cinnamon/sugar mixture and add it to the brown sugar/butter mixture on the stove. 

This is now a super yummy glaze for your Monkey Bread Bites. 
Drizzle this over your "muffins" before placing in the oven to bake. 


Allow your Monkey Bread Bites to bake for about 12-15 minutes. 
If you are doing Monkey Bread allow to bake for 35-40 minutes.
Once it starts to brown on top keep a close eye so your drizzle doesn't burn. 

The best part about using cinnamon rolls is the icing! 
Use this on top of your slightly cooled, finished product. 

Now sit back and enjoy the "fruits" of your labor!
