Crock Pot Monkey Bread

This was something I saw on Pinterest. Of course I had to change it up a little bit. Will I ever just leave a recipe alone? Probably not. Start with two tubes of refrigerator biscuits, 1 cube butter melted, and 1 cup brown sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon stirred together.
Snip the biscuits in half. They cook through better and they are a better size for kids to hold on to and eat.
Spray the inside of your crock pot with cooking spray. Dip the biscuits in the butter, roll in the brown sugar mixture and place in the crock pot. Layer evenly. Poor the extra butter over the rolls and then sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over that. Put the lid on.
Cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Test the center for doneness. Turn the monkey bread out on to a platter. The Pinterest recipe had this drizzled with icing but it doesn't need it.

  1. I used to make this all the time when my kids were young...it never occurred to me to either cook it in the crock-pot OR cut the biscuits in half. Brilliant.
