These weird but wonderful little candies have been flying off our shelves recently and have been surging in popularity all over the UK. They’re awesome little things have a sour but slightly sweet flavour to them, and come in great flavours like cherry, cola, grape and root beer.
Hugely popular over in the states, they’re perfect for putting in the treat drawers for a movie night in or just as a treat after a long day.
We’ve got a super sweet and sour recipe for a cookie dough pizza here too.

Cookie dough bottle cap pizza
We’re going to start by taking some inspiration from the BBC Good Food cookie recipe for your ingredients, and then add our own twist with the candies.
- 275g/9¾oz unsalted butter, softened
- 275g/9¾oz soft light brown sugar
- 225g/8oz granulated sugar
- 2 large free-range eggs
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- 475g/1lb 1oz plain flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 300g/10½oz good-quality milk chocolate, chopped roughly into chunks
- Sea salt
- 1 pack of bottle caps
Cool so now we’ve got our ingredients sorted let’s kick things off by putting the butter and the sugar together into a mixing bowl before mixing enthusiastically to form a smooth mixture that should be quite light in colour.
Secondly grab your eggs and then crack them into the mixing bowl that has the sugar and butter already in it, mixing the eggs in after breaking one at a time. This should give you a combined mixture that you can then add your tablespoon of vanilla extract to.
Next use a sieve to sift the flower and the baking powder into the mixture and fold it in, mixing until you’re satisfied it’s completely mixed together and then add your chocolate chips.
Roll your dough mixture into a large ball before wrapping in cling film and cooling in the fridge for 30 minutes. Once that’s done bring the dough out and use a rolling pin to make a large pizza base disc before banging it in the oven on some non-stick baking paper with a pinch of salt sprinkled over the top. You’ll need to bake it at 180c or 350f or Gas 4 for 20 minutes until it takes a golden brown shade.
Once that’s completed take your cookie pizza out of the oven, sprinkle your bottle caps on to it and then allow to cool. You’ll find the mixture of the sweet chocolate cookies and the sour flavours of the candies really compliment each other and are great for kids.
