Chocolate Dessert Pizza Uses Seasonal M&M’s Candy

This delicious Fall dessert recipe for my Double Chocolate Pizza recipe from my Gulf Coast Favorites cookbook is the best chocolate dessert pizza.  Plus, this easy chocolate kid’s recipe made me the most popular mom throughout all three of my kids’ years in school. I loved creating easy Halloween kids recipes.  However, even though this might be a kid’s dessert, I make it for Thanksgiving every year and the adults are the first to grab a piece.  I use the seasonal Thanksgiving M&M’s for that time of year.  Still requested, these days my daughters make this fun and easy Chocolate Chip Cookie cake themselves for their own kids and friends. The key is finding the seasonal M&M’s for a festive fall dessert!
