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
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.
