Posted in : DESSERT on by : Admin

Sweet skillet caramelized pineapple rings topped with vanilla ice cream, cinnamon caramel sauce, coconut, and macadamia nuts – the perfect tropical treat!


  • 4-6 1-inch thick fresh pineapple rings (see note)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut flakes
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped Diamond of California Macadamia Nuts
  • Instructions

  • Add coconut flakes to a large nonstick skillet and saute over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes until edges begin to brown. Transfer to a bowl or plate and set aside.
  • Add butter to the pan and stir until melted. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and stir until dissolved and mixture is thick and saucy.
  • Place pineapple rings in the skillet in a single layer so they aren’t overlapping. Cook 2-4 minutes on each side until hot throughout and very tender.
  • Remove from heat and top each pineapple ring with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Spoon some of the pan sauce over the ice cream and sprinkle with coconut flakes and chopped macadamia nuts. Serve immediately.
