Cini-Mini Monkey Breads


   I honestly don’t know what I could say to convince you to make these, because the pictures should say it all….


  Miniature pull-apart monkey breads, covered in cinnamon sugar and vanilla icing!


Cini-Mini Monkey Breads

12 Rhodes Dinner rolls, thawed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Vanilla Icing:

2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
2-3 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine butter and corn syrup together until well mixed. In a seperate bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.

Cut each thawed roll into 6 equal pieces. Dip each piece of roll into the butter/corn syrup mixture and then into the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place all 6 coated pieces into a well greased cup of a 12-cup muffin tin. Repeat with all remaining rolls.

Bake for 15-18 minutes. Remove rolls from oven and let cool atleast 20 minutes before removing rolls from tin. (If you don’t let them cool slightly they will fall apart!)

While rolls are slightly cooling, make vanilla icing. Stir all of the icing ingredients together in a medium bowl, using more or less milk to reach desired thickness. Spoon over rolls and enjoy! ♥

  1. I saw these this morning and had to make them tonight. My husband and I loved them! We went ahead and ate them warm out of the oven, no icing needed, we couldn’t wait. So good! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Exactly what I was looking for. McDonald’s no longer carries them here and my kids loved them. They will be so excited. Almost as excited as I am maybe!

    1. Michelle, the Rhodes dinner rolls are just frozen bread dough. You could use any bread/roll dough to make these 🙂 I just use Rhodes out of convenience.
