Hello all! Only one and a half more weeks left of grad school and then I will have my Master's!!! Woohoo! In celebration of this event, I have an awesome review of the New York Baking Company's silicone baking cups for you. I had to "break them in" so I decided to relive my middle school home ec days and make Bubble Buns for you all.

First off, you can purchase the silicone cups off Amazon (click here!) for the low price of $8.95. Pretty affordable, right? They are made of a BPA free silicone and are nonstick and dishwasher safe. I love, love, love all the bright and happy colors! I also love how they are reusable. They are truly nonstick... The Bubble Buns recipe is pretty darn sticky (melted marshmallows!) and all of it just peeled right off with barely any pressure. 

I can only think of two small negatives. The first thing is that it comes in a set of 12. If you have recipes that make more than a dozen cupcakes or muffins, you will either need to purchase more than one set OR use paper liners to make up the deficit. The other thing I found out was that they don't wash well in the dishwasher. I ran mine through twice (some of them three times!) and they did not get clean. They tended to fly everywhere and fold up so that the inside did not get washed. It was pretty easy to hand wash them though since they are nonstick. 

Now onto the Bubble Buns! Like I said, the last time I made these was when I was in middle school in home ec class. I rediscovered the recipe in a pile of recipes that I have been accumulating and was excited to try them out again. I remembered them being a favorite! They are very similar to Monkey Bread however they are filled with marshmallow. (Todd likes to call them Monkey Balls because they taste like Monkey Bread, haha.) When the marshmallow melts, it leaves the cupcake/muffin hollow... just like a bubble!

So without further ado...

Ingredients (serves 10)
  • 1 pkg (10) refrigerated canned biscuits/rolls
  • 10 regular marshmallows
  • 1/4 c melted butter
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 3 tbs cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400*.
Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
Separate the dough into 10 pieces.
Flatten each piece of dough into a thin circle.
Dip each marshmallow in butter and place one marshmallow in the center of each circle of dough.
Pull the dough up around the marshmallow, pinching the seam together.
Holding each bun by the seam, dip in butter and coat in cinnamon sugar.
Place seam side down in a greased muffin pan or liners.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Carefully remove from the pan and cool on a cooling rack.
Be very careful as the melted marshmallow is very hot!
