And The Winner Is (well, um, was)...

First off, many thanks to all who offered recipe ideas in the comments and via e-mail (even Dirk who suggested I just go pick something up at the store... believe me Dirk, I thought about it)... I promise that I'm going to try each and every recipe idea that I received from you all. And I will report it in these pages when I do... But I narrowed it down to one choice and the winner was something that I've made before. The last time I made this was about a year and a half ago when I made it for my gal pal's church for their tuesday night ministry. I had forgot about it until a friend of mine sent me a note to remind me that I made it before and it was so easy a ten year old could've made it. (which means I barely qualify).... The history of this tasty treat was that a co-worker made it originally and called it "Candy Shoppe Pizza". However I added more toppings (the candy) and when I presented it at work, because of all the chocolate and candy involved, the girls re-dubbed it "PMS Pizza"... so here's the recipe and directions to make this. It's so easy that even MIK can do it....

PMS Pizza:

a regular size tube of Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough
a half cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
a half cup of peanut butter
6 to 8 candy bars, chopped up

a 12-inch pizza pan

set oven at 350 degrees (farrenheit).
Take cookie dough and spread it entirely onto pizza pan and bake as one big cookie.
When cookie is done baking, take cookie out of the oven and turn oven off. Then pour chocolate chips and peanut butter on middle of cookie and place back into oven so that the chocolate chips and peanut butter can soften. Meanwhile, chop up the candy bars.
Next, spread the chocolate chips and peanut butter mix to coat the cookie. leave about a half inch or an inch edge around the outside of the cookie. Remember, this is supposed to look like a pizza with pizza sauce on it.
Put the "toppings" on the "sauce". As for what candy bars to put on, my general rule of thumb is to use about three different types of candy bars. Allow to cool a couple of hours in the fridge and cut the pizza up to serve as you wish... serves 8-10 people

Different combinations that I use:

Almond Joy, Snickers, Twix

Milky Way, York Peppermint Patties, Zero bars

(my personal favorite) is:

Snickers, Almond Joy, Butterfinger

note: you can add more or less toppings to whatever your taste desires... this one is whatever tastes good to you... again, thanks to all who gave me ideas... I mean it when I say that I'm going to try each of the recipes that you all sent me... I let you know when I do it...
