Chocolate Lovers Pizza.
Round 3 of Adventures in Chocolate. Week by week I’m working my way through my work family selecting someone to choose a chocolate recipe for me to make, picture, post, and deliver to them.
Jeff never passes when there are samples of chocolate being shared through the office so I knew I could count on him to select me a tasty recipe. Not only was this Chocolate Lovers Pizza super easy to make but it was fun. I took some liberties with the recipe and replaced maraschino cherries with Reese’s Pieces. At Christmas, perhaps swap those with red and green M&M’s.
At Christmas Thyme I made a similar Chocolate Lovers Pizza for my nephew and topped half with red & green M&M’s and half with chopped mini-Reese’s cups.
Then I went to my local pizzeria and asked if I could buy an empty pizza box. They got a chuckle and gave me one.
