Transcript:How to Make Candy Pizza
Ingredients for Candy PizzaTo make candy pizza, you will need:
- 1.75 cups white chocolate chips
- 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 cups crispy rice cereal
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 cup red and green candies
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
Prepare the Candy Pizza IngredientsStart by covering a large baking sheet with foil and set it aside for now.
Set aside 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips in a plastic bag, and combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips with the remaining 1.5 cups of white chocolate chips into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chips together in short bursts until they’re melted, stirring often to keep them from overheating and burning.
Mix Chocolate Chips, Cereal, and MarshmallowsOnce the chips are melted and smooth, add the rice crispy cereal and stir until it starts to get incorporated, then add the miniature marshmallows, stirring until everything is coated with the chocolate and there are no dry spots remaining.
Create the Pizza CrustScrape the candy onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it into a thin circle using a spatula or the back of a spoon. I try to make my pizza as large as possible, while still trying to keep it somewhat round on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle on the M&M "Vegetables"Sprinkle the red and green candies on top of the wet chocolate—these are your vegetables. It’s a good world where M&Ms count as vegetables, right?
Add the Coconut "Cheese"Next sprinkle the shredded coconut all over the top of the pizza. Press down gently on the coconut and candies to get them to stick to the chocolate.
Add White Chocolate Chips and Melted ChocolateTake your 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips in the small plastic bag and microwave it until they are melted, about 30-45 seconds. Squeeze the chocolate in the bag with your hands to get all of the chips melted and smooth. Cut off a small corner of the bag, and drizzle the melted chocolate all over the top of the pizza in random patterns as a finishing touch.
Refrigerate and Serve the Candy PizzaRefrigerate the pizza until the chocolate is completely set, about 45 minutes. To serve, cut or break it into small pieces. Of course it looks cute if you cut it into wedges, but these are kind of monster servings, so you can always cut it into small shards or squares instead.
This is a great candy to serve at the end of a pizza party, and because all the cooking happens in the microwave, it’s a perfect candy to make with kids.
