Candy Pizza

submitted by Mandy Cecil (our resident dessert queen!)

1 roll of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, whatever you like)
1 cup chocolate chips
Candy bars, whatever you like (example: 1 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, 1 small bag M&M's, 1 Kit Kat bar, 1 Milky Way... whatever you like, but if you only pick one of 2 of these, you will need about 3 or 4 bars each. You will also need to cut these, well, not the M&M's)

Roll out cookie dough onto round cookie sheet or stone. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. As soon as you take it out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips all over and peanut butter. Spread all over pizza. Cut into (however big you want them) pieces. Sprinkle cut candy bars all over. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

note - Mandy brought this to a party at Mike and Naphtali's house one night and it was a huge hit. Everyone loved this full of Chocolate Pizza!
