This is one of the desserts I made for Father's Day! I have eaten a pizza made with a brownie "crust" before, but it had fruit toppings instead of candy. It was good, but I wanted a brownie pizza topped with candy, nuts and chocolate...why add fruit to that and make it even slightly healthy...lol. This turned out so yummy, but it is rich so it serves a lot of people. I used candies that are our favorites...Snickers bars and M&M's. Here is what I used to make this pizza, but you can substitute somewhat for things that your families favorites:
1 pkg. brownie mix prepared as directed on the package
1 8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
10 fun size Snickers bars
1 cup mini M&M's ( I used 2 of the tubes the mini M&M's come in)
1 cup chopped nuts ( I used walnuts, but pecans or even chopped peanuts would be great)
1 cup melted chocolate chips
1 Tbs. shortening
caramel ice cream topping
Mix the brownie mix up as directed on the package. Spray a pizza pan or a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the brownie mix on the pan. It will be thin. Bake it in a preheated 350 degree oven for 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely. Mix the softened cream cheese, confectioner's sugar and the vanilla until it is fluffy like a thick cream cheese icing. Spread this on the cooled brownie layer. You can substitute canned cream cheese frosting for this if you want to save some time. Cut up the Snickers bars in pieces and sprinkle over the cream cheese. If you want to use some other candy bar, that works also. I think Reese's cups cut up would be really good also or Milky Way.
Place your chocolate chips in a glass bowl and microwave 1 minute. Add the tablespoon of shortening and stir. Microwave about another minute, stir until smooth and shiny. Make sure the bowl and spoon are clean and completey dry. If you get one drop of water in melted chocolate it will ruin in. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cream cheese and candy bar layer. I just used a spoon to do this one, but you can put it in a squeeze bottle also. Place this in the refrigerator until the chocolate has cooled and hardened back up.
Once the chocolate has hardened and it's chilled, sprinkle on the M&M's and chopped nuts. This could be made for various holidays by using the holiday colored M&M's...black and orange for Halloween, pastels for Easter, green and red for Christmas! I waited until time to serve to drizzle with the caramel ice cream topping. You can drizzle each piece with it or the whole pizza.
I used this topping because it comes in a squeeze bottle and make it easier to drizzle. I heated it about a minute in the microwave first. Just don't put it on really hot or it will melt your M&M's and chocolate drizzle.
