Quick Mini Monkey Rolls

  • Total Time: 24 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


If you’ve ever craved monkey bread but didn’t want to make it, these Quick Mini Monkey Rolls are such a great, quick alternative. They are so easy to make!




  • 2 cans (7.5 oz) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. corn syrup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon


  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 23 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Cut each biscuit into fourths. (Tip: a pizza cutter works great!)  Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine melted butter and corn syrup.  Stir until well mixed.
  4. In another bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Dip 6 or 7 biscuit pieces at a time into the melted butter mixture and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture until completely covered.
  6. Place 6 to 7 pieces into each cup of the prepared muffin tin.  Gently press down once you have filled each cup.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. While biscuits are baking make frosting by combining all ingredients and mixing well.  If you want it more like a glaze add less powdered sugar. I like mine to be normal frosting consistency and then frosting the rolls while they are really warm.
  9. Let cool for a few minutes and then take a knife and go around the edge of each muffin cup to loosen the rolls and then carefully lift out with the knife.
  10. Place on cooling rack with a piece of wax paper underneath.
  11. While still warm, frost with a vanilla glaze
