take my word for it wednesday.. easter was wonderful and so were these chocolate chip monkey muffins

this year for easter i focused on bread type desserts.. i made grandmommys zucchini breadlemon monkey bread, cinnamon monkey bread {i made it the same way as the lemon but instead of lemon zest i added cinnamon.. but everything else was the same..i omitted the lemon glaze for the cinnamon loaf..} i made my carrot cake sandwich cookies and over night french toast aka bread pudding.. then i found this recipe rhodes monkey muffins and thought it would work out great with the rest of the desserts.. these muffins were pete's favorite.. they were sticky, chocolaty.. gooey and luscious..

even before they were cooked they looked yummy...

i tossed extra chocolate chips on top..

mine where a little over loaded and oozed all over my muffin tray..

but no matter if they made a mess or not they were soo good..

once you pull them out they are sticky and fall apart.. pete called them monkey nuggets..

chocolate chip monkey muffins

prep time: 20 minutes
cooking time: 15-20 minutes
servings: 12


12 rhodes dinner rolls, thawed but still cold
6 tblsp. butter, melted
2 tblsp. corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup chocolate chip


cut each dinner roll into 6 equal pieces.  in small bowl, combine butter and corn syrup and stir until well mixed.. in another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon and mix well.. dip 6 roll pieces at a time in the butter mixture and then roll in the sugar mixture.. place 6 pieces in each well sprayed muffin cup of a 12 cup muffin tin.. i then added a few chocolate chips while i was layering the pieces.. then repeat with remaining roll pieces.. cover and allow to let double in size.. preheat oven to 350 degrees {f} and bake for 15-20 minutes.. cool 3-4 minutes before removing from pan.. i removed them from pan once they were completely cooled i put in an air tight container until the next day then i got them out and allowed them to get to room temperature, about an hour, before putting on the serving table..

see they kinda fell apart once they got to room temperature but no matter they were yummy..

just to show you proof of the name of the blog.. this is my kaotic mess on saturday afternoon..

i still had so much to do and kept having to send pete to the store i added new things to the menu i wanted to make..
