Guest post- Monkey Bread

Today we are excited to have Kristin from Kadbury is...Thinking Out Loud guest post for us!  Kristin is a mom of three- her very own BLT! Her blog is filled with her experiences with crafting, cooking, and decorating (as well as some humor, because we all know with kids there is always humor!)  Be sure to follow along with her on Facebook and Twitter. She'll have you giggling at least once a day.

Lately, my kids have been asking to help out in the kitchen. And when it’s not totally going to stress me out, I let them. Yes, it’s true. Occasionally my kids stress me out.

Where are your shoes?!? The bus is almost here! Please quit trying to put that plastic bug in your sister’s ear – It’s not funny!  If somebody touches somebody else in the next five minutes, I’m pulling this car over! We are making these cookies to give to someone else, you cannot keep licking your fingers in between frosting them…

But Monkey Bread is so much fun to make with them. And it’s my kids’ all-time favorite breakfast because it’s sweet, gooey, and fun. What’s not to love?

Here’s what you’ll need:
4 rolls of refrigerated biscuits
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
*1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
*1/3 teaspoon ground cloves
2/3 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350


First, mix the sugar and spices into a Ziploc bag or large bowl. Open a roll of biscuits, and using *clean* scissors (or a knife, but I have the kids use scissors), cut each biscuit into four pieces.
{I use Pillsbury’s value pack or whatever I find on sale}

Then coat each biscuit piece in the spice/sugar mixture and place into a greased Bundt pan. I use a gallon Ziploc bag for the spice mixture and let the kids go crazy shaking it. Repeat this process with the remaining three rolls of biscuits.

After all the biscuit pieces are coated and in the Bundt pan, take a microwavable container and put the butter and leftover spice/sugar mixture in it. Microwave it until the butter is completely melted (about 15-20 seconds). Pour this over the biscuits and bake for 45 minutes.

When it’s finished, just flip it over onto a plate, but be careful – the gooey goodness is VERY hot right out of the oven. It always smells so good that I try to eat it right away and burn my mouth. Yep, not my smartest move ever.
{Please note that the bottom of the monkey bread in this picture is not even. That is because I ate the whole bottom part. It was good.}

*The picture above shows a half-batch using only two rolls of biscuits. A whole batch will feed my family of five, but if I’m only making it for the kids, I make a half batch.

I hope your family will love it as much as mine – and don’t blame me if you burn your mouth; you were warned ;)
