Chocolate Pizza

Every Christmas my family makes chocolate pizza. I never loved it as a kid because of the nuts, but now that I’m older I think it’s a fun, yummy little Christmas Treat. And everyone is always going gaga when you say, I brought Rocky Road Chocolate Pizza! This season I’ve been refreshing some old posts and bringing them back up to the front to share them with you all again and this chocolate pizza is one I had to re-share.

You can change things up as you like as we do. For example, we never add the coconut or the maraschino cherries, “’cause they’re gross.” 😉

Or at least that’s what our youngest says. Kids don’t quite have those taste buds developed yet, huh.

Homemade Chocolates

This is such a fantastic way to spend Christmas eve day. Making chocolates with the kiddos. It’s easy and they will love all of the stuff that gets dumped in them. And I know I shouldn’t admit this, but as soon as I dump in the rice krispy cereal with that melted chocolate I cannot help but start snagging little nibbles. It’s just so good!

This particular batch was made by our oldest and her little friend. They thought it was so much fun mixing everything together and felt like such big kids spreading it out. It’s also perfect for any last minute treats to the neighbors. Enjoy my mom’s Rocky Road Chocolate Pizza!

Why Does Chocolate Turn White?

The white discoloration that sometimes forms on old chocolate is known as a fat bloom.

It is caused by liquid fat such as cocoa butter migrating through the chocolate and crystalizing on the candy’s surface.

It is harmless to eat, although the flavor and texture may not be as good.

Are Candy Melts Real Chocolate?

Candy melts are a product that are often recommended for easy candy.

They’re recommended for candy making, but these melts are not chocolate.

They are made from sugar and vegetable oil, and they usually don’t contain cocoa butter.

A variety of flavors are added, such as peppermint or peanut butter.

For chocolate flavor, cocoa powder is added.

What Makes Chocolate Crumble When Melting?

Crumbly chocolate is usually a result of moisture in the chocolate.

If even a tiny amount of moisture is introduced, the liquid and the sugar will form a syrup to which the cocoa particles will cling, thereby creating grainy clumps.
