GRANNY'S KITCHEN: Missionary Pizza (Rice Krispy Pizza)

I was wanting to send Nathan a fun box of something, and read about making a pizza out of rice krispy treats and sending in a pizza box.

I dug out Mark's favorite rice krispy treat recipe and put on my pizza board that was lined with parchment paper. I wet my hands with cold water to keep them from burning and sticking as I pressed and shaped the bottom.  The next layer was about a cup of melted chocolate chips. If you use milk chocolate rather than semi sweet, you will need to add a dab of butter or oil to make it smooth enough to spread.

I then melted some mini marshmallows with some butter and spread on top of the chocolate. This was the cheese part of the pizza.  The 'pepperonis' are fruit roll ups that I cut out with a medicine bottle lid.  I wrapped all this up with cellophane wrap (not with the pizza stone! lol, I had nothing but the parchment paper circle under it, but you might put a piece of cardboard under it if you want) and put in the pizza box.  I love how there is NOTHING written on Muccuck's pizza box, but they have ordered printed boxes. :o( Oh well, maybe I'll get another box or two picked up before they get the printed boxes in. :o)

I picked up a new pizza box and put the cookie pizza inside. Tomorrow, I am heading to the dollar store to find a pizza cutter to put in the box with it, then it will be shipped to Nathan at the MTC.

My husbands favorite rice krispy recipe (chocolate scotcheroos)
~Boil together 1 cup sugar and 1 cup corn syrup, then remove from heat.
~add in 1 cup peanut butter and 6 cups rice krispies.

This is all I usually do, and hubby really loves it.  The recipes goes on to have you melt 6-oz chocolate chips and 6-oz butterscotch chips over hot water (I use the microwave, but you have to think the book is copyrighted in the 70s! lol) and spread over the top. Maybe next time I will spread the butterscotch/chocolate chip mixture on the pizza rather than just chocolate.  It is big enough to share.
