Easter Pizza

Who doesn't love pizza, especially around Easter? This is a fun, kid friendly recipe for candy pizza that my boys and I whipping up this past Monday.
Candy Bars: Butterfinger, Symphony, Skor, Crunch, Cookies and Creme, Kit Kat, Reese's peanut butter cups and plain holidayM&M's.
This is the fun part: In a large bowl put all the candy bars together and let the kids go crazy!! (Except: peanut butter cups - they get too messy and Skor - you have to cut that one up with a knife.) You can also use a food processor and chop the candy into small pieces.
Once the fun is over add your Skor bar, your chopped up peanut butter cups and Easter M&M's. Set aside for the end. This is very tricky because it is hard to keep little hands out. Too tempting!

Now for the cookie batter:

1 1/4 cubes (or 10 Tlbs.) softened butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup nestles mini morsels - semi sweet

Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add salt, baking soda and flour - stir til combined. Add mini morsels.

Place dough in a greased 14" round pizza pan or a 15 1/2" x 10 1/2" x 1" rectangular pan.

Cook for 15 to 17 minutes at 375 degrees.

While the dough is baking in a microwave safe bowl add: 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Heat until melted and smooth, it makes a yummy sauce.

Once the cookie dough is done baking, smooth the sauce all over the top.

Again, let your kids go crazy and decorate the top with all the candy toppings!! Allow cookies to completely cool in pan. Once cooled serve and enjoy.

I hope everyone has a great Easter! We're off to California to spend the holiday with my sister and her family.

I never thought to bake that in a tart pan - genius! This is the best reason to buy colored M&M's!

My kids would go crazy over this. What a great way to use up that Easter candy that's still lurking around.

I think I am going to make one of these!!! Thanks for posting it!

Liz said...

This looks like an even better halloween time treat--good thing to use up all that cand that is inevitably hanging around--and keep me from buying these in bags and then eating the rest at another time!
Any ideas on what to use instead of peanut butter for the "sauce." My son is allergic to peanuts, so PB is out. :(

Stephani said...

That looks wonderful! :) I'm thinking we could use Nutella for the sauce. My husband doesn't like peanut butter... Or maybe hot fudge would work? Hmmm... I'll have to experiment :)
