Because you set aside the ‘good stuff’ anyway, this Trick or Treat Dessert Pizza is a perfect way to enjoy your favorite fun size candy bars!
Please tell me I’m not the only one that picks up a bag of Halloween candy, you know, to have on hand just in case. Nor am I the only one that picks out the good stuff from
all one of my kids’ candy stash. I can’t be. The beauty of fun size candy bars is that you can enjoy more than one favorite at a time.
So in celebration of fun size candy bars everywhere, I made a trick or treat dessert pizza. As a way to celebrate the ‘good stuff’, make this to use up the candy that mysteriously jumps into your cart after a quick grocery stop or to use the kid’s Halloween candy in a simple dessert. It’s perfect for your next fall party!
This easy dessert makes great use of your favorite fun size candy bars and is well loved by both kids and adults.
- 1 roll REFRIGERATED COOKIE DOUGH (I used Pillsbury Chocolate Chip - use your favorite)
- 4 oz. CREAM CHEESE
- 1/2 cup MARSHMALLOW CREME
- Assorted FUN SIZE CANDY BARS, chopped
- CARAMEL SAUCE, for drizzling before serving if desired
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Press cookie dough into a 12 inch circle on a pizza pan or parchment lined baking stone. Bake for 15-17 minutes until cookie is slightly golden.
- Let cool completely.
- Beat together cream cheese and marshmallow creme. Spread in a thin layer across cookie (an offset spatula works great for this!). Sprinkle with candy of your choice. Cut into wedges and serve, drizzle with caramel sauce if desired.

What a fun pizza! I have bite sized candy in a bowl year round, so it needs to change with the seasons. 😉 I can make a pizza out of the leftovers from the next season change!!

Yum! Do you think these would work out okay if I used homemade cookie dough? I’m always hesitant to use the store bought kind.

Yes, I think any batch of cookie dough you like – store bought OR homemade – would work perfect here.
