Monkey Bread for Family Home Evening

Have you ever made monkey bread? It's like the easiest thing to make in the world and why we did it for FHE - because of course I like Bugs to help me in the kitchen.

This stuff is definitely not cuisine but served immediately, it's hot, sweet, doughy, carmely, sticky and utterly delicious.

Here's the recipe:

Monkey Bread

3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 can refrigerator biscuits

Mix the butter, water and sugar in a large microwave safe glass bowl and microwave for 2 minutes on high. Remove and place a small glass in upright in the center of the bowl. Put the biscuits all around the glass so it's like a big doughnut. Then microwave it again for 2 minutes on high. Be careful because it's really hot but remove it and invert it onto a dinner or serving plate. Serve hot because as it cools, it becomes firmer and less tasty, not to mention it's cold and just not as yummy. It's easy to tear chunks off because the biscuits separate really easily and then you can dredge them in additional caramel sauce on the plate. Mmmmm!

Anyway, this is a great FHE treat or just one to get the kids in the kitchen learning how to cook. Bugs is pretty finicky even with treats and she loved this.

My mom made that all the time for us growing up! My kids were SO EXCITED to see Natalie at Gymnastics tonight. That is all they have talked about since they got home.
