  • 1 tube refrigerated pizza dough
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/4 cup powdered hot chocolate mix


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a muffin tin.
  • Open the pizza dough and cut it into 1-inch sections.*
  • Place the dough pieces into a mixing bowl and pour the melted butter over the top. Gently mix to coat the pieces.
  • Add the hot chocolate mix to the dough and stir well, coating all of the dough pieces.
  • Place a small handful of the dough mixture into the muffin tins and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the pieces have slightly browned on top.
  • Allow to cool and then gently remove from the muffin tins.


This recipe is very forgiving, the goal is just to have small chunks of dough.
