Mini Monkey Bread Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This Mini Monkey Bread Recipe is perfect if you just want a dessert for a few people. I love that I can make individual little bread for each person out of refrigerator rolls!

I made these the other day when we were binge-watching our shows. They came out so cute and are the perfect dessert for a spring tea or brunch. This monkey bread recipe is made with canned biscuits, but you can also make it with crescent rolls. This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.

Hello Friends! Have you been acclimating to the time change? It usually takes me about a week to get used to it during the spring. As much as I do not enjoy losing an hour, I absolutely love that the days are longer!


These cute little monkey breads are made in these mini bundt pans. If you don’t have mini bundt pans, you can use these. They are just the cutest things and I love that they make a small amount.  They are a cute sweet addition to meals because they capture the spirit of the spring season!

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

This Mini Monkey Bread Recipe is made with canned refrigerator biscuits so it saves time not having to make the dough. I would not recommend making these ahead of time because they will not taste as fresh.

If you want to prepare part of this ahead of time, I would recommend cutting the biscuits in fifths ahead of time and storing them in the refrigerator until ready to prepare.
