Hump Day Snack: Mardi Gras Monkey Bread Muffins

Let's face it: We're a long way from the good intentions of New Year's resolutions. In fact, we’re now less than a week away from celebrating Mardi Gras with beads, booze, beignets and the grand traditions of Bourbon Street. The locals often celebrate with a classic cinnamon-laced king cake topped with sugary glaze and purple, green and gold sprinkles (and hiding a tiny plastic baby baked inside for good luck). But if you prefer more bite-size pastries, this recipe for Mardi Gras Monkey Bread Muffins combines whole-wheat flour and a buttery cinnamon and sugar mixture to make individual adaptations, all drizzled with swirls of the festive traditional icing. No plastic baby required!
