Do you grocery shop from a list or do you just wing it;  buying what looks good and then figuring out how to make it a meal once you’re home?

I used to wing it, my husband still does,  but now I am a strict shop from the list kind of girl. That’s the reason I passed up Trader Joe’s chocolate covered sea salt  butterscotch caramels for weeks.  There they were, along with the dark chocolate peanut butter cups,  taunting me at the register. But like I said, I am a girl with a list.

{not to mention a girl with a slightly larger than I’d like waistline}

However, I found these monkey bread muffins from  Bakeaholic Mama and in the post Carrie mentions that her mom used to stuff the monkey bread with Hershey Kisses. I had NEVER heard of that before, but what a terrific idea.

I knew exactly what I was going to stuff in our monkey muffins.

{stuffed} Monkey Bread Muffins


  • 1 or 2 tubes of Pillsbury Biscuits {depending on how many muffins you want - I only used 1}
  • 1 bag of chocolate covered seas salt butterscotch caramels {or a candy equivalent - mine are trader Joe's}
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • combine the cinnamon and sugar {set aside}
  • line a mini muffin pan with liners
  • divide each biscuit in half {one tube makes 18 muffins}
  • place 1 chocolate caramel into each and seal into a ball
  • roll the balls into the cinnamon and sugar
  • place one ball in each mini muffin cup
  • bake @350 for 15 - 18 minutes


Because I only have one mini muffin pan, I used one tube of biscuits and made 18 mini-muffins. But I warn you, they are addicting, and if you’d like to have them for say more than an afternoon, make more!
