As part of a fundraiser our store is running to assist a local school with no library to obtain books for the over 200 students, the staff are baking our hearts out. Today is the bake sale, one of two to be held over the next two weeks. I came across Chock Full of Chocolate, a child friendly cookbook, and chose to make the Candy-Covered Pizza as one of my entries for the bake sale.
All the recipes within Chock Full of Chocolate are easy to make and are recommended for children ages 8 and up with the assistance of a responsible adult. This recipe turned out very well however where the recipe stated to work the dough into a circle with your hands, I found mine to be too runny to do so, so I spread it on the pizza pan using a spatula. Other than that, it was an easy to use recipe. Children would love decorating the pizza with a combination of candies of their choice. I used Skittles and Smarties and another President's Choice candy (oblong shapes). If I were to make this again, I definitely would add colour to the icing to make it look more like pizza sauce.
Other recipes include:
triple chocolate cookies
If you're looking for a user friendly cookbook to enjoy with your child/ren, Chock Full of Chocolate is a good place to start.
