A Year of Pizza: Nutella & S’more Brownie Pizza

After making several traditional pizzas, I wanted to broaden my Year in Pizza series by tackling dessert. When I found this BHG archives recipe for brownie pizza, the perfect idea came to mind for a deliciously sweet dessert. Why not combine a few of my favorite ingredients and recipes for one spectacular pizza?

With summer campfires on the brain, I decided to give the brownie pizza a seasonal twist inspired by the flavor of s’mores.

Once I had my brownie crust prebaked, I started with a layer of Nutella to act as the sauce for my pizza. For toppings, I used mini-marshmallows and some bear-shaped graham crackers to really bring the s’more flavor alive.

Finally, since every pizza needs at least one extra topping, I sprinkled on some tiny peanut butter cups.

After another few minutes in the oven and a couple minutes under the broiler to toast the marshmallows, my pizza was complete. This is such a fun, quick, and totally delicious dessert. What I really love about this recipe is that, like pizza, you can completely customize the toppings. I just thought this combination would be perfect for summer. Making this pizza is a great way to spend a rainy day when you can’t get the campfire going.

You can find the full recipe for my brownie pizza here.

What do you think of my take on this dessert? What toppings would you try?

Malted Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Let’s do cake this Monday morning and kick start our week with this Malted Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze. I’m all for easy bundt cakes and this one is no exception. This one comes together easily and quickly.

Of course you can skip the sprinkles, but I decided to give the cake a hit of festiveness with some color.  And to make it really pop I switched the chocolate glaze to a white chocolate. Other than that, I stayed to true to the recipe.

White Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake

When it comes to easy, light, and totally delicious summer desserts, strawberry shortcake is a quintessential favorite. So when I saw this recipe for Classic Shortcakes this past week, I knew I had to kick of the summer properly with this sweet treat.

However, to make things a little more interesting I decided to add a little something extra to the classic recipe with some white chocolate chips. When served slightly warm, the little morsels of melted white chocolate add an extra layer of creamy flavor.

I simply followed this recipe and added in about 3/4 cup of chopped white chocolate chips when mixing together the dry ingredients. I also think these would be delicious with milk or dark chocolate chips as well. Any chocolate goes wonderfully with strawberries.

I also like that you can bake a bunch of these up, throw them in the freezer, and have a quick easy dessert any night of the week. There’s no  need to turn the oven on each time you get a craving for something sweet.

Strawberry Shortcake is definitely one of my summer favorites! What yours? Let us know in the comments below.

Happy Baking!
