Monkey Buns

This is what the people in my house looked like when the alarm went off this morning . . .

The second day of school isn't quite as exciting as the first one . . . some of the new has worn off. It doesn't take long does it?
It's been documented that our family loves us some Monkey Bread. This summer, Honey created a faster, less labor intensive way to make our beloved breakfast. It's perfect for those rushed school or church mornings when you need something with a little more pep than a boring old bowl of cereal.
We call them Monkey Buns . . .
Start with 2 cans of biscuits.

Break each biscuit into 4 parts and drop in a greased muffin pan. We usually put 2 biscuits (or 8 parts) in each muffin cup.

Melt 1 stick of butter (for best results) or 5 tbsp if you want less goo, and combine with some cinnamon and sugar and around 1 packed tbsp brown sugar. To really sweeten it up, throw in 1/2 tbsp of Karo syrup. If you wanted, you could throw in some chopped pecans, too.

Spoon the mixture evenly into each muffin cup. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with a side of your favorite fruit or yogurt.

By the end of breakfast, everyone was pretty much ready for the second day of school . . . pretty much.

Yum! I like a short cut way to do that! You are such a good mom making breakfast for your kids. I'm so not a morning person. I make sure they eat something, but I'm not necessarily industrious enough to actually make it!
