We love a fun breakfast and this Lavender Monkey Bread is so tasty and fun! I love my mini bundt pan from Pampered Chef, but you can totally use a regular size bundt pan or even muffin pans!
Lavender Monkey Bread
Buttermilk Biscuits- 1 container ( I used Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup Lavender Simple Syrup
1/4 cup Lavender Sugar or just sugar works too...
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
3 Tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 350 ℉ and spray your bundt cake.
Open your biscuit container and cut them in 1/4's.
Pour 1/4 cup of Lavender Simple Syrup on the bottom of your pan and top with your pecan pieces.
Melt you butter and dip each of your biscuits into the butter and then roll into your sugar layer them into your baking dish. Once you have layered all the biscuits into baking pan, drizzle with remaining Lavender Simple Syrup and any remaining butter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes for smaller baking dishes and 25-30 for larger baking pans or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before turning over you baking dish onto your serving platter. Serve while warm.

Here are some fun and creative environmentally friendly way to wrap your gifts this holiday season!
We found some very cute holiday kitchen hand towels from home goods. They are wonderful way to wrap a gift and even add that gift inside of a gift idea. They usually come in a set of two so you can even wrap multiple gifts with coordinating fabrics. So fun that you can unwrap a gift and use your wrapping paper! Of course if you have some extra fabric lying around you can use the same basic ideas using this method.
Here is how I did it in the video below.
Here is a second method of wrapping without having to use tape! I love how the fabrics go together and adding a element like a spoon allows you the extra element a bow would to enhance a gift, but again adding the useable function. We wrapped up in these two videos a Lavender White Cake Mix and a Lavender White Frosting.
We found this adorable apron and filled the pockets with our lavender mixes and used the apron strings to tie the bow! See how we did it! We stuffed the apron pockets with Lavender Chocolate Cake Mix and a Lavender Chocolate Frosting. This idea would be adorable in a mixing bowl as well!
Our last video show how you can use a oven mitt to give a gift inside of a gift! They often come in a set of two...so bonus, you can give to two people! We referred to our Lavender Hot Chocolate and our Lavender Scone Mix that make a great holiday breakfast!
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
Holidays are about here! This chocolate candy recipe is great any time of year, but especially fun to give for gifts at Christmas. I always love how chocolate pairs with lavender and am always creating new ways to add the two together. You can be creative with your candy as well, sub a different style of nut, chips and even use holiday sprinkles.
You can get fun Christmas candy boxes online here. Add ribbon and a bow and you've got yourself a great gift!
Note-I keep my chocolate in the double boiler while spooning out the chocolate so the chocolate doesn't cool down as fast. This will give you a few more minutes before the chocolate begins to harden.
Chocolate Lavender Candy
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup pecans
2 Tbsp Culinary Lavender
Bring a double boiler to boiling then turn heat to medium low. Add to your hot double boiler 2 cups chocolate chips, and coconut oil. Stir your chocolate until melted then add and stir in your vanilla. Chocolate chips can be temperamental so once it is melted, quickly make a tray of round disks and sprinkle on your nuts and lavender. I like to gently press my nuts into the chocolate so they don't fall off later. Be careful your chocolate will be hot.
Once your chocolate candy has cured you can put it in a cute gift box to give to friends! Let us know what you think of it!
