Use some of that Halloween candy to make a cookie pizza for the whole family. The base is a delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe that’s frosted and then decorated with candy. You can make it your own by using whatever you have on hand, or just picking up some of your favorites at the store.

Ingredients for the Cookie:
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 whole large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Ingredients for the Frosting:
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped candy
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine butter, brown sugar and sugar; beat until creamy. Add vanilla and egg, and mix until well combined. Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Spray a 12”-14” pizza pan with non-stick spray. Press cookie dough into an even layer over the pizza pan, leave about a ½” border around the edge. Bake for 10-15 minutes until set and just starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven to cool.
  4. Meanwhile prepare the frosting by mixing the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk together until it gets to a spreadable consistency. Adjust milk and sugar if necessary to make it spreadable.
  5. Once the cookie is cool, spread frosting evenly over the top. Top with chopped candy of your choosing, such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Twix Bars and Reese’s Pieces.
