Box O’ Monkey Brains

1 loafBridgford Frozen Ready-Dough®, thawed or
1 pkgBridgford Frozen White Rolls Dough, thawed or
1 pkgBridgford Parkerhouse Rolls Dough, thawed
¼ cupbutter or margarine
½ cupgranulated sugar
1 tspground cinnamon
red gel icing of choice
For white icing:
2 cupspowdered sugar
2 tbspmilk or water
½ tspvanilla extract

On a lightly floured board, cut thawed loaf into 36 equal pieces. (If using Bridgford Parkerhouse Rolls, cut each roll in half. If using Bridgford White Rolls, cut each roll into 3 pieces.) Using a little flour on fingers, shape each piece of dough into a ball. Set aside. Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Dip dough pieces in melted butter and roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 3 balls into each cavity of a lightly greased muffin pan(s). Let rise until double in size. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and invert pan onto a large baking sheet so that the rolls are bottom-side-up. When cool, frost with white icing and decorate with purchased red gel icing (to look like a brain).


To make larger “monkey brains” use large cupcake pans and place 4-5 pieces of dough into each cavity. Continue with the remaining steps of recipe.

Icing: 2 cups powdered sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons milk or water and ½ tsp vanilla extract.
