Ooey. Gooey. Cinnamony. Sugary. DELICIOUS. I can't believe it took me until now to discover how good this stuff is (I had never tried it until a few weeks ago!). Seriously... it is soooo goooooood. Plus, it's fun to eat AND easy to make. So basically, you have no excuse not to try this recipe. Go make some Monkey Bread. Now.
24 ounces refrigerated roll or bread dough
7-1/2 tbsp + 3 tbsp granulated sugar, divided
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon, divided
2 tsp light butter
3 tbsp skim milk
Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a loaf pan or small bunt pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Mix together 3 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut dough in pieces so that you can roll it into 3/4-inch to 1-inch balls. Roll in the cinnamon-sugar, arranging them in the pan as you go. Sprinkle any extra cinnamon-sugar on top.
In a microwavable bowl, combine the 7-1/2 tbsp granulated sugar, brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, butter, and milk; microwave until butter is just melted. Stir it all together, and pour mixture over dough balls.
Bake for 35-40 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, then turn upside down onto a plate.
