We’ve got a yummy dessert idea, courtesy of Plush Puffs Gourmet Marshmallows, that could be a fun alternative to a traditional birthday cake…your kids can even have fun helping to make it! It’s called a Brownie S’mores Dessert Pizza (can you really go wrong with a name like this?? I don’t think so!).

Here’s the recipe which serves 8…

Ingredients:

One box brownie mix
1/2 cup marzipan
1/2 cup cream cheese

1 cup Vanilla Bean Plush Puffs (cut into 1/4″ pieces)
1 cup Caramel Swirl Plush Puffs (cut into 1/4″ pieces)
1 cup Chocolate Chipetta Plush Puffs (cut into 1/4″ pieces)

1/2 caramel sauce
1/2 chocolate sauce

Directions:

Generously grease a 12″ springform round pan.  Prepare the brownie using the directions for the cake like brownies.  Pour brownie batter into the greased pan.  Combine the cream and marzipan cheeses – using table spoon, drop dollops of cheese mixture randomly on top of brownie batter – using a knife swirl cheese dollops in a paisly like shape.  Bake brownies according to box instructions.

Cool brownie round and release from the spring form pan.  Mix the Plush Puff pieces and spread equally over the brownie round.  Using a kitchen torch – toast the mallows until golden brown and gooey – drizzle caramel and chocolate sauce over the marshmallows -and sprinkle with toasted pecan pieces if desired. Cut into pizza slices and serve!

Give it a try for your next birthday party! Could be a fun activity for a girls party!
