Banana Split Brownie Dessert Pizza

I remember going to all the home parties when I was first married.  We used to have Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Longaberger Baskets, Southern Living, etc.  My favorite by far was the Pampered Chef because I not only got to see the newest kitchen gadgets, I always came away with a new yummy recipe.  This is a dessert pizza I remember from years ago but didn't have an exact recipe so this is what I came up with.

Here's what you need:

1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients to make the brownies (I use Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie 9 x 13 Family size)
1 - 8oz. package cream cheese, at room temperature
1 - 8oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 of an 8 oz tub of cool whip
2 bananas, sliced (approx. depending on size of fruit)
1 pint strawberries, sliced (approx. depending on size of fruit)
chocolate syrup, for drizzling on top

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Prepare brownie mix according to the back of the box.
 
Place a piece of parchment on a 15 inch round baking stone and pour the brownie mix directly into the middle of the stone spreading into a 12 inch circle (it will get bigger while it cooks)
 
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
 
When the brownie is done cooking remove from oven and let cool completely.

Drain the pineapple and set aside.  
In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.  Add the Cool Whip and mix until creamy.  Add the pineapple and mix well.
 

 
  Spread mixture evenly over the cooled brownie crust.
 
Slice the strawberries thinly and arrange over the top of the cream cheese mixture.
Slice the bananas and arrange over the strawberries.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup ~ as much as you like
Chill for at least 2 hours before serving, the longer the better.
Mmmmm, this is Amazing!

Serves 12 - 16

Enjoy!

    1. Jocelyn,
      I love pineapple so it was a must. I don't remember if the original dessert had it but it makes it all the more Banana Splity :)
