Forgive Me Monkey Bread


So Im posting this for my dear friend Brookie because her internet isnt working… I took her camera and did a horrible job at returning it and posting this blog, sorry Brooke! So the story behind the name of this lov-e-ly treat is that when ever my husband eats it he tells me…. “Seriously hun, if you ever make me really really mad, just make this and it will be like nothing even happened!” So as you can see, this is amazing so try it and you are guaranteed to LOVE it.

Monkey Bread

Im guessing this is eye balled because there isnt measurments on the paper she gave me…

-2 Cans Homestyle Pillsbury Rolls ( cut into pieces and also mixed in below mixture)

-Butter (when we did it we put chuncks of it), Brown Sugar & Cinnamon mixture. (and she mixed it all together with her hands)

*Bake at 350 until golden brown (Shouldnt be too gooey because the sauce will make it extra gooey)

P1120736  Homemade YUMMY Icing

-1 Cup Soft Butter, 3-5 Cups Powdered Sugar (depends on the thickness you want) 1Tbsp pure vanilla, 1/2 Cup Whipping Cream, 1/2 tsp cinnamon

*slowly heat and mix with whisk until smooth. Then poor over Monkey Bread and enjoy deliciousness!
