Chili's Paradise Pie

Chili’s Paradise Pie

1 1/2 cup butter, melted
3 cups firmly packed brown sugar
6 eggs
3 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup coconut
2 cups milk chocolate chips
caramel sauce
hot fudge sauce
more chopped walnuts (optional, I only had enough to make the pie but more to go on top would have been fabulous)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a jelly roll pan (this is the bakers half sheet size -  it’s like 11 1/2 inch x 16 1/2 x 1 or you could use 2 9×13 inch pans.  The pie may be a little thicker and may take a little longer to cook).
In a large bowl, combine sugar and melted butter; beat with electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla; mix well.
Combine flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add to the sugar mixture; mix well.
Stir in nuts, coconut,  and chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake 40+ minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Serve warm, or reheat individual servings in the microwave (10 seconds for a serving). Top with ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce and hot fudge sauce then sprinkled with chopped walnuts . Or just eat them like a brownie or bar cookie.  They are also excellent that way too.  Makes 24.

Wow, this sounds like a great dessert. The combination of walnuts, coconut and chocolate chips topped with caramel sauce would be absolutely fantastic. And topped with some vanilla ice cream it would be amazing. I’m going to have to make this one for the family.

Try substituting pecans and butter pecan ice cream with this butter pecan sauce -
