Heaven in a bit

Within an hour of baking this treat it was named ‘TrishBits’. As awkward as that can be when discussing how absolutely delightful this treat is…I’m flattered.

First off I take no credit for the creation of this treat…apparently it’s known as Monkey Bread. Needless to say the name is not at all flattering, so that’ll be the last time it’s so called in this post. Back to credit, I will take all the credit that:

  • You will soon bake and subsequently enjoy this scrumptious treat
  • You will have this recipe handy at all times

Oh and one more thing before we get to the recipe…I’m a lazy baker so I take shortcuts all the time…don’t hate…congratulate. Therefore, if you know how to make bread dough by all means do it in this recipe.

Drum roll please!

You need:

  • 1/2 cup sugar (white)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cans Pillsbury Country biscuits (I think that’s the name)
  • 1 cup Trish coloured brown sugar (i.e. medium coloured brown sugar…take a picture of me to the store and compare against each bag of brown sugar and voila!)
  • 3/4 cup butter melted (you could use margarine but why would you want to do that?)

Eight-ish steps and you’re done:

  1. Mix cinnamon and sugar (white) together in a Ziploc bag.
  2. Tear apart the biscuit dough, roughly roll into balls
  3. Add dough balls to Ziploc bag and toss generously to coat each dough ball
  4. Mix melted butter and Trish coloured brown sugar
  5. Add coated dough balls to baking dish and pour butter and brown sugar mixture over it
  6. Bake at 450 for 30-ish mins
  7. [optional] Put on your oven light and watch intently, opening the oven every now and then (seriously I did this because of my impatience…if you’re up for it…try it)
  8. When each dough ball is cooked through, remove from oven and cool for 10 mins (or less if you can’t wait. But you should know that someone in my home may or may not have had his tongue burnt)
  9. Turn dish over into a larger dish and devour.

Heaven in each bit(e). Enjoy!
