Snow Day Tradition: Monkey Bread

Over the past couple of years we have been blessed with a plethora of snow days.  I will never ever outgrow the excitement of a snow day.  And, just like when I was little, I love waking up to a fresh blanket of snow and watching the closings scroll across the bottom of the screen...even if it is almost March.  As a mommy though, it has new meaning--it is a guarantee of a snuggle day trapped inside with my very favorite people!

When I was little, we always made monkey bread on snow days (and often Saturday mornings just because).  Fast forward to when Kellen was in kindergarten, he made a cookbook for me for Mother's Day and one of the recipes inside was for monkey bread.  It was a different recipe than what we used growing up, but just as delicious.  I have continued this joyous tradition with my children, but now we use Kellen's recipe.

I had a nice little helper today, which made it taste just a little sweeter.

Getting our hands dirty!!

 Cinnamon + Sugar = Yummy!

 Making sure they are covered with butter.

The finished masterpiece: DELICIOUS!!

Monkey Bread Recipe (Courtesy of Kellen's kindergarten teacher)

2 cans homestyle refrigerated biscuits
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 stick butter, melted

Combine sugars and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.  Cut each biscuit in half and dip one at a time, into melted margarine.  Roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture to cover entire biscuit.  Pile biscuits into greased bundt pan.  Sprinkle any butter or cinnamon sugar mixture on top.  Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Pull apart and enjoy!!
