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.

  1. My favorite commercial was the one with the puppy and the horse such a sweet commercial!! These muffins are the perfect comfort food to stay warm.

  2. I could totally use one or two of these right now!

  3. 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. 🙂
