Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 whole large egg
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped candy
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer combine ¾ cup of the butter, brown sugar and sugar; beat until creamy. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla and egg, and mix until well combined. Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Spray a 12”-14” pizza pan with non-stick spray. Press cookie dough into an even layer over the pizza pan, leave about a ½” border around the edge. Bake for 10-15 minutes until set and just starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven to cool.
  • Meanwhile prepare the frosting by mixing the remaining butter (½ cup), powdered sugar, the remaining vanilla (1 tsp.) and milk together until it gets to a spreadable consistency. Adjust milk and sugar if necessary to make it spreadable.
  • Once the cookie is cool, spread frosting evenly over the top. Top with chopped candy of your choosing.
