I don’t know what ya’ll do with Halloween candy at your house, if you have any suggestions I’m all ears. I’ve come to the realization that I’ve got ISSUES with “fun sized,” candy treats. Every time I walk by, my hand has already grabbed a piece before my brain even knows what has just happened.
Now, I’m not saying I’m ready to give it up cold turkey. I just need larger portions that scream “I’M AT LEAST 10,000 CALORIES” to help motivate me to say no. I could tear through every one of those little snack sized candy bars in the picture above. By themselves they don’t stand a chance. However, if I add the candy to a Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza, I see it totally different. There’s no way to trick myself into believing that it’s just a little miniature fun size bar anymore.
1. Go through your Halloween candy and unwrap all the candy you want to use to make your cookie pizza. I used Kit Kats, Twix, Milky Way, Three Musketeers, and M & M’s.
2. I used an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix. Follow directions on box, and pour into round pan. (it doesn’t matter what shape you use rectangle is fine too) Don’t fill the pan more than half full or you’ll have cookie everywhere.
3. I used muffin tins for the rest of the batter.
4. Follow directions on package, however add approx. 8 minutes to the cook time. Check to make sure that the oven is preheating.
5. Take the muffin tins and cupcake holders out of the oven and immediately pour chocolate chips out of the bag on top of each. If you don’t have any nut allergies in your family, Add 1 TB of peanut butter to the chocolate chips. Allow to sit on the hot cookie pizza for two or three minutes, then gently spread out the chocolate or chocolate/peanut butter “icing” across the surface. I just used a spoon nothing fancy.
Follow the steps listed above if you are using muffing tins. I just sprinkled a couple of chocolate chips in each tin. Then, if you want to add peanut butter add a tad to each muffin.
