Monkey Bread Bites
adapted from http://www.rhodesbread.com/recipes/view/2097
12 Rhodes Dinner rolls, thawed but still cold
6 T butter, melted
2 T corn syrup
½ c brown sugar
2 t cinnamon
1 c powdered sugar
1 T butter, melted
1-2 T milk
½ t vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Break each dinner roll into 6 pieces. Get two bowls. In the first, add the corn syrup and butter. Stir it up. In the other, combine the cinnamon and sugar. Put a few dough balls into the butter mixture.
Transfer the dough to the cinnamon-sugar bowl. Coat the pieces.
Grease a muffin tin. Put six pieces of dough in each section. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it rise until double in size. For this part, I boil water in a glass container and put it in the microwave with the pan. It seems to rise faster.
Once it's doubled in size, bake it for 15-20 minutes. Cool for a few minutes and remove them to cool.
Combine the glaze ingredients and drizzle over the Monkey Bread Bites.
They were well received among my family members. They are like a little bundle of gooey doughnuts with delicious glaze. I like the sound of that.
