HALLOWEEN PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE PIZZA

Halloween Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza is topped with marshmallows and Reese’s Pieces and then drizzled with chocolate, caramel and orange icing!

Halloween Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza is a favorite treat around our house, and not just at Halloween, although the colors work perfectly for this holiday in particular. This recipe is super easy to adapt to personal tastes, holidays, etc. so feel free to swap out the Reese’s Pieces for holiday M&Ms or even just plain chocolate chips and of course you could use any color/kind of drizzle you’d like!

I started with a peanut butter cookie crust using my absolutely favorite Peanut Butter Cookie recipe ever.I swapped out the chocolate chips in that recipe for Reese’s pieces because there is no such thing as too much peanut butter and I wanted the festive fall colors! This recipe makes the most perfectly soft cookies and I have made them so many dozens of times but have never tried to make one big huge cookie with this recipe so I was a little nervous it wouldn’t bake quite as well. I couldn’t believe how well the cookie turned out! Even when baked as one big cookie, this recipe still yielded a perfect, soft consistency and baked evenly.

HALLOWEEN PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE PIZZA

  • 1 cup peanut butter*
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-2 cups Reese’s Pieces
  • 1-2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • caramel topping, if desired

CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE

  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp shortening

ORANGE DRIZZLE

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp water or milk
  • 3 drops yellow food coloring
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  1. With a hand mixer, cream together the peanut butter, butter, white sugar and brown sugar until blended.  Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.  Add flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and mix together. Stir in the Reese’s Pieces, saving a few to sprinkle on the top later.
  3. Press the cookie dough into a well-greased 14″ pizza pan until the dough is evenly distributed. At this point, sprinkle the remaining Reese’s Pieces on top. Bake for about 11 minutes at 375 and then remove from oven. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top and return to the oven for about 5-6 minutes or until the marshmallows are very lightly browned. Cool completely before preparing the chocolate and orange drizzle.
  4. To prepare the chocolate drizzle, place the chocolate chips and shortening in a small glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave at 15-second intervals, stirring each time until completely melted and smooth.
  5. To prepare the orange drizzle, stir together the powdered sugar with the water (or milk) in a small bowl until well blended and then add the food coloring, mixing until color is uniform.
  6.  Drizzle the chocolate and orange drizzles on top of the cookie. Drizzle caramel topping if desired. Sometimes I just use a spoon to drizzle, or you can also use place the drizzle mixtures into small sandwich bags, snipping a small corner at the bottom to squeeze the drizzle out of. 

*Every time I have made these cookies I have used a regular creamy peanut butter (like Jif or a store-brand alternative). Several readers have commented that the cookies do not turn out as well when using a natural peanut butter.

  1. Do you think this could be made and mailed in a box (3 day shipping)? Maybe if I don’t use caramel sauce or the orange drizzle? It would be a cute surprise for my son in the military!
