Tailgate Recipes: Brownie Fruit Pizza

1 package (18.3 oz.) traditional 13 x 9 chewy fudge brownie mix
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1 cup (6 oz.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, divided
2 cups thawed fat-free whipped topping
3 cups fresh fruit and berries of choice (blueberries, sliced grapes, kiwi, pineapple, strawberries)
1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut (optional)

Directions: Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour 15-inch-round pizza pan or 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.
Combine brownie mix, oil, eggs and water in medium bowl until blended. Stir in 3/4 cup morsels. Spread onto prepared pizza pan. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until edges are set. Remove to wire rack and cool for 3 minutes; loosen edge of brownie crust from pan with knife. Cool for 1 hour on wire rack. Spread whipped topping over brownie crust. Top with fruit. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup morsels and coconut. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 1 hour before serving.

* Brownie crust may be made in advance. Allow to cool completely and cover with plastic wrap for up to 1 day. Or you can purchase pre-made brownies from the bakery and assemble the toppings at the tailgate.
