Sweet Biscuit Dough Snacks

Monkey Bread Muffins

A big pan of pull-apart monkey bread is great for a crowd, but these single-serving muffins are the way to go if you only want to make a small batch. Top tips: Bake them in heavy-duty paper or foil liners to keep the sticky caramel sauce from leaking through. And if you have an apple slicer, put it to work cutting up up the biscuits.
