Trick-or-Treat Pizza

Hey, everyone!  If you have a bunch of leftover chocolate from Halloween, here's something you can do with it!  You can really use any kind of candy you want, but I decided that I only wanted to use chocolate for mine :)  Here's the recipe from Taste of Home magazine:

Ingredients: 1 tube (16 1/2 oz.) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
Assorted candies, unwrapped
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter  

1. Let dough stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften.   Press onto an ungreased 14-in. pizza pan.  Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes until golden brown.  Cool on pan on a wire rack.
2. Coarsely chop large candies; set aside.  In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter; stir until smooth.  Spread chocolate mixture over crust; top with candies.  Refrigerate, covered, until chocolate is set.  Cut into wedges.

Don't be scared to put lots of the chocolate sauce on the pizza - I didn't do it enough last night, and it wasn't as good.  You might want to take it out of the fridge a couple minutes before you're going to eat it, or else it can be hard to cut.

Another alternative is making smaller pizzas (individual sized) - just do the cookie dough like you're making cookies, and spread the sauce and candies the same way.  The great thing about this recipe is that you have tons of flexibility, and there's really no way you can mess up too bad! I didn't put nearly as much candy as they did in the picture - it's already super rich :)

Here are some pics of when I made them :

  1. It was quite yummy, but VERY rich. Have a glass of milk ready.


  2. I would totally use dark chocolate for the pizza sauce and then put Reeses PB cups on top. YUM! Would be a fun idea for kids to create personal sizes to their liking at a birthday party or something!

  3. Oh man...that looks quite scrumptious! May have to try that with my Home Group! Love, Aunt Julie
