Oreo Spider Web Cookie Pizza

I was so excited to see on my doorstep Friday a box and then to open it to find baking goods. I won a giveaway on A Nut in a Nutshell.  The one catch was I needed to make one of the 3 recipes and send a picture that I did it.  So why not post a picture of what I did.  This recipe found on the Kraft website for a Oreo Spider Web Cookie Pizza. I was looking at the Candy Corn Cake but then the kids saw the pizza and they requested it, so on to plan B I went.

This was a super simple recipe to make the ONLY thing that was hard was making the circles for the web requires a steady hand, which I was not having luck with. So my web kind of looks like a drunk or high spider.  BUT hey the kids loved it no matter what and that is what matters most to me.

My Package & Cookie Pizza

I received the coolest package that had everything I needed (even a new apron for me ... AND get this I was actually able NOT only able to tie it but wrap it around and tie in front ... OH yeah baby ... onto the skinny me).  

what you need
 Halloween OREO Cookies, divided
cup  butter or margarine, melted
oz.  BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
pkg.  (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
cup  cold milk
pieces  black string licorice (10 inch), cut into 1-1/4-inch pieces
small  round candies (I used Wilton's Candy Eyes)
Tbsp.  ready-to-spread frosting
Tbsp.  Halloween sprinkles

oven to 350°F.
CRUSH 22 cookies to form fine crumbs; mix with butter. Press onto bottom of 12-inch pizza pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 4 min.; cool. (Alexis Note: I used a spring form pan to keep it all together and easier to travel with)
MEANWHILE, microwave semi-sweet chocolate and 1/2 cup COOL WHIP in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 30 to 40 sec. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 30 sec. Cool slightly.
BEAT pudding mix and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. (Pudding will be thick.) Stir in remaining COOL WHIP; spread onto crust to within 1/2 inch of edge.
SPOON chocolate mixture into resealable plastic bag; snip off small piece from one bottom corner of bag. Use to drizzle chocolate mixture in spiral motion over pizza. Gently drag toothpick through lines to resemble spider's web. Refrigerate 1 hour.
MEANWHILE, decorate remaining cookies with licorice pieces and candies as shown in photo, using frosting to secure pieces to cookies.
PLACE decorated cookies on pizza just before serving. Garnish with sprinkles.

This is a very simple recipe and one the kids loved!
