Brownie Pizza (Throwback Thursdays)

Yum

 I'm always trying to get my kids to eat more fruit.  Well, this dessert is a fun way to get them to do so.  I just piled all the fruit on top of a brownie and call it a brownie pizza.  A thin layer of brownie and a pile of fresh fruit with a tangy cream filling is sure to put a smile on your face.

Note:  Throwback Thursday is a new series where I take some of my original posts here on  Curry and Comfort and redo them so I can take better photos.



Ingredients:
1 box of Brownie Mix
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese at room temperature
Fresh fruit of your choice (ie..strawberries, bananas, kiwi etc..)
1/3 cup sugar (or splenda)
1/2 tub of cool whip
Sundae toppings like chocolate syrup, nuts, mini-marshmallows (all optional)



Make brownie mix according to package directions.  It's best if you can bake in a deep dish pizza pan (with an edge).  I actually decided to used two round 8'' cake pans and made two mini brownie pizzas.  If you decide to use the cake pans my baking time was 20-22 at 350 degrees.


Mix the room temperature cream cheese with 1/3 cup sugar or splenda.  I also added half a tub of cool whip because I wanted a lighter filling.


 Cut your desired fresh fruit.  Here is a tip to get uniformed slices on soft fruit... an egg slicer. : )




Once the brownie is baked, cool completely.  Then invert onto a cake plate and top with cream cheese filling.  Then top with any fruit and/or sundae topping.  Slice into pizza slices and serve.  Enjoy.

  10. I wonder if it was my mom's idea to get us to eat more fruit when she made fruit pizza. Although the sugar cookie base was always good, the brownie sounds amazing!
