I thought this Halloween decorated cookie pizza from Land O’Lakes would be fun Halloween craft and treat for children to help out with. The base is basically just a large chocolate chip cookie which is cooled and then spread with chocolate frosting and decorated with cookies, candy and Oreo “dirt”.
Ghosts in the Graveyard Cookie Pizza
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup uncooked old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup real semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup prepared chocolate frosting
5 chocolate sandwich cookies (1/2 cup), crushed
Sandwich cookies or bars, or chocolate-covered graham cracker cookies, if desired
Decorator gel or vanilla candy coating, melted, if desired
Assorted Halloween candy decorations, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add all remaining cookie ingredients except chocolate chips. Beat until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Spread dough into lightly greased 12-inch pizza pan. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until cookie is golden brown on edges. Cool completely.
Spread cookie with frosting; sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Decorate as desired.
