Favorite Dessert Pizza

I love this crust for just about any dessert pizza.  I made the fruit version tonight.  For a candy bar or chocolate...use the chocolate frosting, and for the fruit...use the cream cheese frosting.



Cookie Crust

1 ½ sticks softened butter
¾ cups white sugar
¾ cups brown sugar
Cream together until fluffy

Add
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
Mix together until color lightens

Add
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 ¼ cups flour
½ cup mini chocolate chips
Stir until flour is incorporated

Spread into a greased jelly roll pan, or lipped pizza pan
Bake at F350°, 10-12 minutes until edges just begin to brown
Remove from oven, let rest 5 minutes
Prepare sauce

Candy bar pizza:

Frosting/Sauce:
2 cups, or ½ bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
1 cup peanut butter
Melt, and stir until smooth
Spread evenly over cookie crust
Top with candy bars
Let cool
Topping Ideas:
1 pound bag of M&M's, holiday colors are always appropriate
4-8 of your favorite candy bars
(Twix, Payday, Reeses, Snickers, Rolo's, Baby Ruth, Butterfinger, Kit Kat, Nestle Crunch)
Crush, cut and mash into tiny pieces
Mix together in a bowl, set aside

Fruit Pizza:

Cream Cheese Frosting/Sauce:

Beat 8 oz. cold cream cheese (not rock solid, but it means you can use it straight out of the refrigerator) with 5 Tbsp. softened butter and 2 tsp. vanilla until combined. Gradually add 2 c. powdered sugar that has been sifted after measuring. Continue to add more sifted powdered sugar until you reach a consistency and sweetness that fits your taste.

Topping Ideas:
Fresh blueberries, banana slices, mandarin orange sections, seedless grapes, strawberry halves, kiwifruit (or any other fruits)!
