Sweet gooey glazed rolls that are dangerous, tempting and lusciously good.

Run into your kitchen and we'll make them together . . . hurry.

 

 

Sweet gooey glazed rolls that are dangerous, tempting and lusciously good.

You will need: At least 12 Dinner rolls - thawed but still cold, melted butter, corn syrup, brown sugar and Cinnamon.

Cut each Dinner roll into 6 equal pieces. Use a pair of kitchen scissors or a pizza wheel.

In a bowl, combine melted butter and corn syrup and stir until well mixed. In another bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Dip 6 roll pieces at a time in the butter mixture.

Roll them around until they are coated from head to toe.

Place 6 pieces in each well - sprayed cup of a 12 cup muffin tin. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let double in size.

Just like this! These are ready for a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

If you like, you can also make Orange or Lemon Sugared Monkey bread. You will need: Melted Butter, Corn syrup, Granulated Sugar and the zest of one orange or a lemon. Mix the melted butter with the corn syrup and stir the lemon or orange zest into the granulated sugar. Stir well.

The process is the same as above. Simply cut your thawed Dinner roll into six pieces. Roll in the butter and corn syrup mixture, then roll each piece around in the lemon or orange sugar. Be generous with the sugar!

Here's a sneak peek into the oven. These are the Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Mini Monkey's. Look how gloriously scrumptious.

Chefs note: Once you remove them from the oven, you will notice that some of that yummy caramel has oozed up and out of the tin. Don't despair! Don't leave it there! Simply take a heat proof spatula, and quickly push all that gooey caramel back over to the beautiful rolls. Your tin should now look similar to this one. While they are still quite warm, take a knife and go around the edges of each well. The rolls won't stick . . . they will easily come right out of their hole.

I like to lay out a piece of parchment paper and place each roll upside down. Most of the gooey caramel is resting on the bottom. Once they cool slightly, and the caramel has set a bit . . . turn them right side up.

Prepare the vanilla glaze and drizzle it over the rolls. I like to drizzle when the rolls are still just a tad warm. The glaze will seep down into the crevices and each little bite will be "sweet!" You can use a spoon, fork or a squeeze bottle.

I dare you to each just one!

Delicious little bites. But wait . . . the Lemon Sugared mini's are almost ready.

They also look lovely in the oven. I put some Coconut flakes on top of the rolls before baking. Oh . . . if only you could smell my kitchen right now.

Follow the same rules as above, and plop them on their tops to cool slightly.

Drizzle with the Vanilla glaze. You could also put a bit of fresh squeezed lemon or orange juice in the glaze as well.

Let cool slightly, then grab one for yourself before they're all gone!

Your neighbors would love you, if you took them a plate of Mini Monkey Rolls. This way, you're not tempted to eat all of them by yourself!

Yummy! I need to make them again.

MELISSA said on Oct 03, 2011
Any clue on how long it takes for the dough to double in size? I'm wondering how early I need to get up to make these for breakfast. I can't do prep the night before, can I?
suzanne Moseley said on Oct 04, 2011
Has any one tried to prepare these the night before but cook them the next morning. please let me know. Thanks
Lou said on Oct 05, 2011
I have the same question! Waited a couple hours and they didn't rise. I wasn't sure and tried to bake a bit after and they def. don't look like the pic. :-( I was impatient
Stacie said on Mar 09, 2012
Doubling in size completely depends on the temp. of your kitchen. Turn your oven on to warm and then turn it off. You can put your covered rolls in there to speed up the rise time. To slow it down (like if you wanted to make them the night before) put them in your fridge. The will rise, but very slowly. Hope that helps!
Amy said on Oct 16, 2011
I didn't see any ratios on this recipe for the butter and corn syrup to dip the bread in. Is it a 1:1 and if so, how much? Also, what exactly is the vanilla glaze recipe?
Jessica said on Feb 01, 2012
I can't wait to try these. But I didn't see any measurements either for the corn syrup, butter, cinnamon or the sugar? Did I miss it?? Thanks!
Tricia said on Dec 22, 2011
I'm looking for the vanilla glaze recipe to. :)

Following my own investigation, thousands of persons in the world get the credit loans goodfinance-blog.com at different creditors. Hence, there is a good chance to receive a consolidation loan in all countries.
Emma said on Jul 10, 2012
Thanks for the idea I love making monkey bread and minnie ones are perfect! But how much corn syrup,granulated sugar,and cinnamon is needed?
Vicky Shapcott said on Sep 08, 2012
I want to make the monkey rolls,I don't see anywhere that it tells how much cinnamon,sugar,butter or syrup, that it takes.
Marcia Merli said on Jul 30, 2012

cindy said on Jul 28, 2012
How much syrup & Butter do you use?
Nancy said on Aug 04, 2012
Yummy! love monkey bread and like the individual sizes. I had plenty butter/corn syrup but would increase the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture to 3/4 cup and 3 tsp. because I ran out.
Melanie said on Aug 29, 2012
I can't wait to try these! Thank you.
Nor said on Apr 27, 2013

ya, i dont see the amounts for any of the ingredients to use. Am I missing them also?
Wendy said on Nov 03, 2013
This sounds amazing! I don't have any corn syrup... would it work to just use the butter? Or is there something I could use instead of the corn syrup?
Thanks for an amazing recipe...
God Bless!
