Chocolate Chip Candy Cookie Pizza’s
It’s all about perspective… Two pounds of candy, bad influence, awesome sugar rush or dental nightmare? Sorry parents.
Cookie Recipe from Annie’s Eats
¾ cup butter melted and cooled
½ cup granulated white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups and 2 tbsp all purpose flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
a couple handfuls of chocolate chips/M&M’s/smarties (It is a candy pizza after all)
Cream butter and sugars with egg, egg yolk and vanilla until combined. Add in dry ingredients and mix well, and stir in your chocolate chips/M&M’s/smarties. Press dough into a prepared pizza pan and bake at 350 degrees until your nose, the best timer in the world, tells you it’s done (approx 15 min). Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. While cooling prepare your favourite icing. We used a butter icing.
Coloured Butter Icing
1 cup icing sugar
¼ cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 tbsp whole milk
Mix first four ingredients well until icing is of a spreadable consistency. Add in a few drops of your favourite food colouring. We chose green and purple, why? Why not. Spread on cooled cookies and decorate with piles and piles of candy! Side note: If you put out all of the candy you buy, it will all end up on the pizzas no matter how high the candy pile gets. Start with putting out half the candy and add more if needed. Trust us, we know from experience.
