Chocolate Chip Paradise Skillet Cookie Recipe – I just love baking these skillet cookies. They are easy to prepare and DELICIOUS! This time I used chocolate chips, pecans, and coconut.

Have you ever had the Chocolate Chip Paradise Cookie from Chili’s restaurant?  It is basically a moist cookie bar loaded with chocolate chips, walnuts, and coconut.  It is topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel.   It is warm, chocolatey, gooey, and has a little reminder of paradise with the coconut.  I recently made a Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie which turned out wonderful.  See recipe with this link.   I decided to try the Paradise cookie ingredients in a skillet cookie.  I love the combination of the chocolate chips, nuts, and coconut in this dessert.  It turned out YUMMY!

    Beautiful recipe, what size is your skillet? I believe is too small, but my Mother may have hers and frankly, I feel that iron skillets are like jewelry to me, pass them down and they’re seasoned perfectly!! thanks

      Karen, I used a 8 inch skillet for this time BUT I recently made a Butterscotch Cookie Skillet in my 10 inch using the same recipe. I just had to cook the skillet cookie in the 8 inch skillet about 8 to 10 minutes longer. I love my cast iron skillets too. My husband grandmother knew how much I loved to cook and left them to me. I was so thankful! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am happy when someone takes the time to not only stop by but to leave me a comment too. Blessings Always, Diane Roark

    I think this is the best cookie recipe I have ever seen. Maybe because it’s in a skillet!!! I love how you added cocoanut in it too. Thanks for sharing this. It will be a blessing to my family.

    Thanks and God Bless,
    Beatricce

      Beatrice, Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment on my skillet cookie. My husband’s grandmother left me her cast iron skillets because she knew how much I love to cook. I have truly enjoyed using them. These skillet cookies are one of my favorite things to cook in the cast iron skillet. They are so easy and delicious. I posted a Butterscotch skillet on my blog also.
      Thank you for stopping by!

      Blessngs Always, Diane Roark
