Parmesan Garlic Monkey Muffins

Parmesan Garlic Monkey MuffinsMiss F had playgroup at her favorite friend's house. Her favorite friend's mom always makes the best snacks for playgrou and this week was no exception. It was around breakfast time and she had made quite the spread. Everyone's favorite was the monkey bread muffins, so much so that she had to make a second batch halfway through playgroup. I decided to swap out the cinnamon and sugar for garlic and Parmesan cheese. The result was a decadent garlic bread perfect for pairing with pasta.  I did cheat and tell C it was his favorite garlic salt and not fresh garlic.  He never reads the blog, so it will be our little secret.
Parmesan Garlic Monkey Muffins

¼ cup + 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 large clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon parsley
¼ cup butter, melted
1 can refrigerated biscuits

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease six muffin tins with cooking spray. Stir together ¼ cup of the Parmesan cheese, garlic, parsley and butter. Cut each biscuit with kitchen shears into 6 equal pieces, roll each piece into a ball and drop into the butter mixture. Place 8 biscuit pieces in each muffin cup, pouring remaining butter over top of each muffin. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Parmesan over top of each muffin. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to set up for 5 minutes or so before removing from the muffin pan.
