Mmmmm Chocolate

Peanut Butter Cup Pizza

This isn't at all knitting or yarn related, but I wanted to share a recipe with you that I came up with over the weekend. Its really easy and REALLY good.



Ingredients:
Chocolate Slice and Bake Cookie/Brownie Dough
7oz sweetened condensed milk (half a 14oz can)
1/2 brick of cream cheese
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 container of coolwhip
handful of chocolate chips
4 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

Mash the cookie dough into a pizza-crust shape on your pre-greased baking sheet. Bake according to directions, it will probably take longer because its one huge cookie, not lots of little cookies, so keep an eye on it. Let cool before adding topping.

Microwave cream cheese for about 30seconds to soften. Put in a bowl and beat until fluffy. Add sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter. Mix together. Fold in coolwhip. Spread over cooled cookie. Crumble peanut butter cups on top. Microwave chocolate chips at 30 second intervals until melted and drizzle on top.

Store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Try it with icecream. Yummm.

p.s. I used fat free coolwhip, fat free sweetened condensed milk, reduced fat cream cheese and unhydrogenated peanut butter and you never would have guessed it from the flavor. Using ingredients with higher fat contents will probably make the topping firmer, but isn't necessary, so why add the extra fat and calories?
