Chocolate Covered Pineapple with Coconut Flakes

Chocolate Covered Pineapple with Coconut Flakes

Growing up I was without a doubt a chocoholic.  That’s not to say I’m not anymore, but I do feel like my sweet tooth has waned.

My family use to travel to Florida every winter break.  My parents along with my two sisters.  A favorite to indulge in was the Pina Colada – virgin of course, since we were young. 

It almost became a thing for the three girls to conjure up whatever we could think of, that remotely tasted like a Pina Colada. Then one day we decided to create a chocolate covered pineapple, after getting a chocolate covered banana from Miss Hullings down the street.  We felt like we hit the jackpot with this invention.

Umpteen years later here I am sitting in the heat with a fresh pineapple on my kitchen counter, and it hit me! I came in from the heat and made our old Chocolate Covered Pineapple on a stick drizzled with coconut.

Not much goes into making this luscious treat other than heating up the chocolate so it melts. I just zapped it a couple of times in the microwave to melt the dark chocolate and poured it into a deep sundae dish.  It was perfect for dipping the pineapple in.

If you don’t feel like one long piece of a chocolate dipped pineapple, then by all means cut it up into bite size cubes. Then dip the cubes, and drizzle with coconut, nuts, or sprinkles.

Once you’ve allowed time for your dipped pineapple to freeze, go ahead and indulge!

This is a great treat for everyone.  The best part – even the kids can dip these and come up with their own toppings!

A fun treat and healthy alternative to some otherwise not so healthy snacks out there.
