Chocolate Cookie Pizza


Still looking for something to spice up a party? Try the Chocolate Cookie Pizza for dessert! This is fun for both kids and adult. Enjoy this cookie pizza topped with chocolate, pecans and candy. But be careful if you are on diet :) I will only eat a small slice then.

Prep Time:15 min
Start to Finish:1 hr
Makes:16 servings

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag (6 oz) semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 tablespoons milk
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup pecan halves
1/2 cup candy-coated chocolate candies
1/4 cup shredded coconut, toasted, if desired
2 oz white chocolate baking bars (from 6-oz package), melted

Directions

Heat oven to 350F. In large bowl, mix 1/2 cup butter, the brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla and egg until well blended. Stir in flour and baking soda (dough will be stiff).

Pat dough in ungreased 12-inch pizza pan or into 12-inch round on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool about 30 minutes.

In 2-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons butter and milk over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until chocolate is melted; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar. Beat with wire whisk until smooth, glossy and spreadable. (If not glossy, stir in a few drops hot water).

Spread chocolate mixture over baked layer. Immediately sprinkle with pecans, candies and coconut; press lightly. Drizzle with melted baking bars. Let stand until set. Remove from pan if desired. Cut into wedges.
