Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza

Treats for the neighbors!  It’s a Pillsbury recipe, can’t tell you how it tasted as it went straight to the neighbor’s house, smelled good though.

cookie crust:

1 (16.5 oz) roll refrigerated sugar cookies

1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled

(I used 1 {17.5 oz} bag Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix plus ingredients to make cookies in place of the above.)

toppings:

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

3 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 cup hot fudge topping (I used Hershey’s syrup instead)

1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

12 (I used about 17) mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups, unwrapped

3/4 teaspoon sea salt, if desired

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour 12″ pizza pan.  (I used my Pampered Chef pizza stone and lined it with parchment paper.)  In large bowl, break up cookie dough.  Stir or knead in cocoa and melted chocolate until well blended.  With floured fingers, press dough evenly in bottom of pan to form crust.  (I mixed up the cookie dough according to the package directions and then pressed it into a circle in the middle of my stone, leaving plenty of room for the cookie to expand while it baked which it did.)

2  Bake 14 – 16 minutes until set but not firm.  Cool on cooling rack 20 minutes.  Beat cream cheese and sugar on medium until fluffy.  Spread over cooled crust.

3  Beat peanut butter, milk and sugar with whisk until smooth.  Drizzle over filling from outside edge of filling to center of crust, using small spoon.  (I put it into a ziploc sandwich bag and snipped a corner off to drizzle it on.)  Microwave fudge topping uncovered on high about 20 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle.  Drizzle over peanut butter.  (If using the Hershey’s syrup, you don’t need to heat it up just drizzle it on.)

4  Spoon 12 dollops of whipped topping around edge of crust.  (I used my Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator to make little dollops around the edge and I made more so that there would be more candy on the pizza.  I did 16 around the edge and then 1 in the middle.)  Place candies in dollops.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Store covered in fridge.
