Description: Sweet gooey glazed rolls that are dangerous, tempting and lusciously good.

Directions: Let cool slightly, then grab one for yourself before they’re all gone!

 Today I’m guest blogging at Rhodes Rolls . . . but I’ll give you a sneak peak.

Talk about scrumptious, and so darn easy to make.

Here’s a sneak peek into the oven. These are the Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Mini Monkey’s. Look how gloriously scrumptious.

Delicious little bites. But wait . . . the Lemon Sugared mini’s are almost ready.

They also look lovely in the oven.

Your neighbors would love you, if you took them a plate of Mini Monkey Rolls. This way, you’re not tempted to eat all of them by yourself!

 This is just one of the scrumptious step by step recipes awaiting you, at the official blog of America’s most favorite frozen dough.

but wait . . .

  • Ruth Ann Ryan - 08/18/2011 - 12:16 pm

    Found you through the Rhodes facebook post. WOW! This is a really great idea. Making monkey bread in a bundt pan is OK but after a few chunks are served, face it, it’s a pretty ugly monkey. This way everyone gets a nice tidy serving. Wonderful! This will be my choice from now on.ReplyCancel

  • jenjenk - 09/02/2011 - 8:24 pm

    i wonder if this smaller size would prevent me from going overboard or if I’d just eat the whole pan of bite sized pieces??ReplyCancel

    Hi love love your site i’ve tried so many recipes already and they have all tasted AMAZING!! I live in Manitoba Canada i dont think we have the Rhodes Rolls here i’ve never seen them?? I made these with just a home made cinnamon bun dough recipe but i can’t get mine to stay together when ever i take them out of the tin after letting them cool they always fall apart? anyone else have this problem? maybe its the dough im useing?? but they still taste AMAZING!ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 12/08/2011 - 5:24 pm

      Mine would do the same thing, but as they cooled I kept pushing them back together until they finally stayed put!
