Banana Split Brownie Pizza

by Divine Domesticity on May 17th, 2008

As to be expected, this was easy and delicious! I opted to use cool whip instead of cream cheese and sugar, because my husband hates cream cheese. (Sacrilege!) I would recommend trying out light cool whip to cut a few calories.

I messed this one up. I thought I had a round pizza pan to bake the brownies on, but turns out I didn't. I tried using a large baking sheet but that in turn made the brownies too thin and they burned. Doh!

I've also added in my directions to foil the pan. That is optional, but I always do that with brownies so they don't stick.

Banana Split Brownie Pizza

6-8 servings

1 (20-ounce) box fudge brownie mix (recommended: Duncan Hines)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
2 tablespoons sugar
2 banana, sliced
1 cup fresh strawberries sliced
Maraschino cherries
1 cup chopped nuts
Chocolate syrup, for drizzling
Whipped cream
Mint, for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Foil line and Grease a 15-inch pizza pan.

2. Prepare brownie mix according to directions on box. Pour onto prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and cool.

3. Beat cream cheese while adding pineapple and sugar together in a bowl. Spread mixture over brownie crust. Arrange banana, strawberry slices, marshmallows, and cherries over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with nuts and coconut. Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Add whipped cream on top and mint for garnish. To serve, slice as you would a pizza and enjoy!
