Chicken/Bacon Rolls and Brownies, A Valentine's Surprise

Yesterday was the kids last day at the center for the rest of the month.  The center is having budget issues and has to cut two weeks out because they can't afford it. I wanted to make the kids a nice Valentine's tread so I made them these delicious rolls.
 I made homemade pizza dough but you could easily use store bought.  Just roll the dough out and sprinkle it with diced cooked bacon and chicken.  These could be made with pepperoni or spinach and feta or any combo you like. I also sprinkled grated cheddar cheese over them.

 Roll them and slice them and place them on parchment covered cookie sheets.

 I made 4 trays of these and ended up with 48 rolls.  There are about 20 kids at the center each day so they got to take some home with them.

 I also made 3 recipes of these brownies:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2010/02/julia-chow-and-valentines-presents.html

After they baked, I spread them with raspberry jam and topped them with chocolate ganache icing.  Then I pressed a chocolate heart in the center of each one.  That is a puppy butt in the top left corner.

 A nice valentine's treat.

 I also made a vat of ranch dressing for the rolls to be dipped in.

I am going to miss cooking for them for two weeks.
