Our monkey bread recipe is easier.....cover the bottom of a pan with brown sugar....little bit of white sugar mixture....put pats of butter on top(I like lots) of that mix

Open tube of biscuits....squish into mix....not too hard or they won't pull apart....bake for the amount of time biscuits say...and viola instant monkey bread.

I have done other ones that you let sit over night but who wants to wait that long for monkey bread?

I made an easy icing for sugar cookies last year that worked well. I can't recall the exact amounts, but I just mixed powdered sugar, butter, and a tiny amount of water. Be certain to mix butter and sugar first. I just made a small amount, so I was surprised to see how far it went. I think I only used about 1/2 cup of sugar, maybe a tablespoon of butter, added about 1/4 tsp. water and then a few drops at a time until the consistancy was good. Then I divided the icing (keep the stuff you aren't using under plastic, or it will harden) - and added food coloring to each section. I started with white, then yellow, (yellow and blue make green), so leftover yellow became green. I think I only wanted blue, red, and brown after that.

I made these last night. DH was my taster and he loved them. Yea, now I know what to give my neighbors. I can't believe how easy they are to make. Also made the peanut butter fudge with peanut butter and white icing so easy and delish!!
Thanks everybody for the recipes.

I just made a version of this today, but my recipe is as follows:

3 bags white choc. chips
3 TBSP oil
5 cups Cheerios
5 cups Corn Chex
2 cups cocktail peanuts
1 bag M & Ms
1/2 bag mini pretzels
Melt the white choc. chips & oil together (I ususally do this in the microwave). Mix the other ingredients together, then mix the melted choc. in. Once all the ingredients are well coated with white chocolate, spoon the mixture onto waxed paper (on a cookie sheet or lg. baking dish). Refrigerate til it hardens.
This makes a huge amount, and I usually buy some of the pretty Christmas treat bags or the containers to divide it up. I also store this in the 'fridge.

Enjoy!!

We make sort of the same recipe, but we buy the Ritz bits with the peanut butter already in them. Dip in white chocolate or almond bark and put sprinkles on top.

Ok, dumb question here. LOL! Many of you have mentioned the Ritz crackers thing dipped in chocolate. But how in the world do you dip it? Are you only dipped half of it? Are you holding it with your fingers and just plunge the whole thing in, but wouldn't there be bare spots where your fingers were? Or are you using a fork or toothpick stuck in it somehow?

LOL! Sorry, but I just can't envision dipping an entire cracker sandwich in chocolate without making a huge mess of myself!

We use the small Ritz Bits and I just melt the almond bark in a large bowl and dump in a bunch of the crackers, gently stir them in, then use a spoon to put them on wax paper to dry.
