Tie-Dye Monkey Bread How-To

Hey, dude! You ready to turn your kitchen from blah to hurrah? Cook up a vibe that's more cool than the Jackson 5 with this Tie-Dye Monkey Bread. Here's everything you need to know to make this colorful dessert. 

For starters, you'll need three tubes of Pillsbury® Grands!® Jr biscuits.

Melt some butter and tint the butter with gel food coloring. You'll want bright colors, so don't skimp on that coloring. 

Toss biscuit pieces into the colored butter, then dredge them in a bit of colored sugar for extra measure.

Now you're ready to tie-dye your Monkey Bread! Place several same-colored biscuits in the bottom of a fluted tube pan that's been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Placing the biscuits in small clusters like this allows the bread to bake without messing up the colors. 

Sprinkle the first layer of biscuits with a few mini marshmallows. They'll lend a bit of extra gooey sweetness to the final product. 

Repeat the layers two more times, and then finish it all off with a final bunch of biscuits.

Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown. Allow your bread to sit for about 5 minutes before turning it out onto a plate. If you try to turn it out too early, the pieces of the bread might fall apart. If you wait too long, the bread might get stuck inside the pan. So watch the clock and be sure you flip it before the bread starts to cool.

Looks pretty good, eh? And if you really want to tie-dye this Monkey Bread to the max, add some colored frosting. Righteous!
