Monkey Muffins

I think the photos speak for themselves on this recipe. These little babies are so good. How could they not be? They are basically sugar, butter, cinnamon and biscuit dough baked to perfection, covered in sweetened condensed milk. Plus there is no mixing. Just dump everything in a muffin tin and you're good to go. Does it get any better than that? 
Haha, but in all seriousness, you can't go wrong with these! I brought them to a brinner (breakfast for dinner) party once and they were gone in about 5 minutes. They were a hit! And I think Luke asks me to make them at least once every 2 weeks (I don't make them that often, don't worry!). They are much simpler and much less time consuming to make than cinnamon rolls but they taste pretty similar. And we use Pillsbury's "Simply Biscuits" to cut out the trans fat. Enjoy! 

Monkey Muffins

  • 1 can Refrigerated Biscuit Dough, Cut Into Thirds
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Vanilla
  • Sweetened, Condensed Milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Add 1/2 teaspoon butter to muffin tins. Sprinkle in 1 tsp sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
Roll dough into walnut sized balls. Place three into each muffin tin.
Top with 1/2 teaspoon butter. Sprinkle on 1/3 tsp sugar and a dash of cinnamon and vanilla (just a drop or 2).

Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
Remove from oven and immediately drizzle plenty of sweetened condensed milk over the top of each one. Be generous! Allow rolls to sit for a little while to absorb sweet, sticky milk.
