Monkey Muffins

Note: I have been making bread with my bread machine. Today as I was making some bread dough I ran across this recipe at Pioneer Woman's blog. Come to Mama! My boys were just drooling as I was rolling the dough into little balls of potential monkey muffin deliciousness. Thank you, Pioneer Woman.

Monkey Muffins

bread dough
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. Place three into each muffin tin.

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

If needed, allow dough to rise. Otherwise just go ahead and bake until golden and bubbly.

While the muffins were baking, I opened my sweetened condensed milk and poured into a microwave safe bowl and added one tsp. vanilla. Warm slightly in the microwave.

When muffins are done, remove from oven and immediately drizzle plenty of sweetened condensed milk over the top of each one. Allow rolls to sit for a little while to absorb sweet, sticky milk.

Ohhhh Deanna...this recipe brought back some wonderful memories..thank you. My Great Grandmother use to make monkey muffins. I had totally forgotten about them. I think when Chaz (my 7 yr old) and I are in the kitchen cooking tomorrow we might just have to whip up a batch or two. Thank you!!! Have a very Merry Christmas and the best New Year!!
