Sprinkle Monkey Bread Muffins

 Monkey Bread Muffins

So now that the Super Bowl is over, it’s all about Valentine’s Day and looking forward to Spring being right around the corner. (oh, and Mr. Groundhog you could of just stayed in hibernation yesterday because I did not need to know that we still have 6 more weeks left of winter, thanks!) 

After that depressing news that winter will be around for awhile, I thought I would make some delicious sprinkle monkey bread muffins for breakfast.

These Sprinkle Monkey Bread Muffins are super simple, all you need is one can of Pillsbury Homestyle Grands Biscuits, vanilla cake mix, melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon sugar, and SPRINKLES.

For the Muffins:
  • 1 can Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vanilla cake mix (dry)
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
  • Sprinkles
For the Cake Batter Icing:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vanilla cake mix (dry)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Spray 6 regular size muffins tins with cooking spray.

Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 8 pieces. Roll into balls. Place melted butter in small bowl. In another small bowl, mix brown sugar, vanilla cake mix, the cinnamon sugar and sprinkles. Dip each ball of dough into melted butter, then roll in sugar mixture. Place 8 balls in each muffin tin.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until puffed up and browning on edges.

For the icing:

Meanwhile in 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add milk, vanilla cake mix and the granulated sugar. Mix with whisk to form thick glaze. Remove from heat. Cool 5 minutes. Drizzle on each muffin. Top with sprinkles.

    Love how festive these look! And I’m so intrigued by the vanilla cake mix in the icing – I bet it totally nails that cake batter flavor! Yum. 🙂
