Paradise Bars

November 12, 2010

Before I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, one of my favorite desserts were Paradise Bars from Chili’s!  It is basically a blondie/cookie/coconut bar topped with vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, chocolate fudge, and chopped walnuts. Oh yea…it’s that good!

I knew that Celiac Disease couldn’t hold me back 🙂 I created a gluten free version of Paradise Bars.  This recipe is soooo simple!

Paradise Bars (Gluten Free)

– 1 box of Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cookie Mix

– 1 stick butter, softened

– 1 tsp vanilla extract

– 2 eggs

– 2 tsp coconut extract

– 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Directions: Follow the box! Just add in the extra coconut extract and shreds 🙂 Then grease a 8×8 baking pan and spread the cookie dough in there like you would brownies. Bake for 25 minutes at 350, let cool, and cut into squares. Eat plain or with ice cream and toppings.

These bars are fantastic! Do you have any recipes that you found at restaurants and recreate at home?

    YUM Sounds delicious!!

    There have been many things that I have seen or eaten at restaurants that I would love to re-create. I guess I better get in the kitchen and start practicing 🙂
