You can totally save the extra cookie dough in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 to 10 days so you can continue to enjoy more warm treats all week long, or you can turn the remaining dough into cookies.  Just scoop balls of cookie dough onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes just like the pizookie.  Your kids might even like their own individual warm cookie with ice cream for a special treat as well!

      I try and have a good variety of easy to intermediate recipes on my blog. This one definitely falls under the easy category, which is one of the reasons I like it!

    it’s hard to get good pictures of warm food and ice cream and you did a great job! I don’t love the tasteless-ness of red velvet, but I LOVE how pretty it is!!!

      I had my set up ready and took a few pics to get my settings right before I baked it and added the ice cream. It was a short window, but luckily I got a good shot. And yes, red velvet is kind of bland, but that’s why you add semi-sweet & vanilla chocolate chips. YUM!

    I just tried this. It was definately hard and was so sticky I had to add an extra egg to finish adding the rest of the cake mix. I tried this on valentines day and it was not easy and made a complete mess. Don’t know if I will try it again but if I do I wouldn’t add the flour. It’s cooking so hopefully it tastes better than the process to make it. Would not recommend as easy and do not cook on valentines day unless you try it ahead of time and only have to throw it in the oven!

      Sorry you had a bad experience! Might be an altitude thing, because the extra flour didn’t go over badly where I live. I hope it tasted good at least!
