Looks-Like-Pizza Brownies

Brownie Base:
1 (1 lb. 5.5 oz.) pkg. fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1 egg

1 cup coconut
2 drops yellow food color
1 can vanilla frosting
2 sheets red fruit leather, cut into 1-inch rounds
1/4 cup chopped black licorice
2 tbsp. chopped pecans
4 green, ring-shaped gummi candies, quartered

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 12-inch pizza pan. In large bowl, combine brownie mix, water, oil, and egg; beat 50 strokes by hand. Spread in greased pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-34 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool completely.

Place 1/2 cup of the coconut and 2 drops of yellow food color in heavy resealable plastic bag. Seal bag; shake until coconut is uniformly colored. Spread frosting over cooled brownie; sprinkle with yellow coconut and remaining 1/2 cup coconut. Arrange fruit leather, licorice, pecans, and gummi candies over coconut. Cut into wedges and serve.

Makes: 16 servings.
