“10 Minute Monkey Muffins”

A while ago, I made the most delicious dessert. So delicious that it was gone within 10 minutes. I suppose you could look at the name “10 Minute Monkey Muffins” in two ways. 1, It takes 10 minutes to prep or 2, It will be gone in 10 minutes. Trust me on this one.

This recipe is probably one of the easiest and only requires just a few things!

Golden Layers Butter Tastin’ Biscuits. Before you begin, turn on the oven to 375F. Cut each uncooked biscuit into 3 pieces.

Grab a muffin pan, some butter, sugar & cinnamon. Put 1 tbsp of butter into each cup. Sprinkle in some sugar and cinnamon. (Be generous, it won’t hurt anything!)

Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place 3 in each cup on top of the butter mixture.

Sprinkle more sugar, cinnamon and butter on top before you bake. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Once done, remove from oven and immediately drizzle plenty of sweetened condensed milk over the top of each one. The more, the merrier. Allow rolls to sit for a little while to absorb.

You’re done. The best part is the crispy, crunchy bottom of the muffins. Oh man.

You will need:

  • Leftover Bread Dough (or Refrigerated Biscuit Dough, Cut Into Thirds)
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Sweetened, Condensed Milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Add 1/2 teaspoon butter to muffin tins. Sprinkle in sugar and cinnamon.

Roll dough into walnut sized balls (or cut refrigerated biscuit dough into thirds). Place three into each muffin tin.

Top with 1/2 teaspoon butter. Sprinkle on more sugar and cinnamon.

Allow dough to rise, if applicable, or just go ahead and 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.

I found this recipe online at allrecipes, but after doing a little research, I discovered the original recipe was from the pioneer woman. Of course it is, no wonder it was fabulous!
