Brownie Pizza

Boxes of chocolate and chocolate roses are nice, but you might want to think outside the box with a creative “pizza” that features a brownie crust and toppings that include two types of chocolate, coconut and pecans. Oh, how sweet it is!
  • 1 package of your favorite brownie mix
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee crystals or flavored coffee mix (like General Mills International Coffees)
  • 1/4 cup coffee liqueur (optional)
  • 1/3 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (milk chocolate, if you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Depending on how thick you want your "crust", spray nonstick coating on the bottom of a round pie or pizza pan (10-14 inches in diameter). Prepare the brownie mix as indicated on the package. Add coffee crystals and coffee liqueur, if desired, to the mix and blend well. Turn into your prepared pan, spreading the batter until level and to approximately 1/2 inch from the rim. Mix together the coconut, chips, and pecans in a separate bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the brownie mixture. Bake on the center rack of your oven about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool, then cut into "pizza" wedges.
