This is a recipe that ‘cheats’ but don’t tell anyone….they will never know.
- 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
- 1 tbsp. rum
- 2 tbsp. chocolate sauce
- 1/3 of fresh pineapple, cored and peeled
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- Vanilla, coffee or coconut ice cream
- 1/4 cup sweetened, flaked coconut, toasted
Cut the pineapple in 12 wedges. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the pineapple and brown sugar, stir frequently, cooking only until the pineapple has softened and has turned a deep golden brown (3-5 minutes). Leave in the pan.
Drizzle the chocolate sauce in a zig zag pattern on each plate. Arrange the wedges so they are just slightly stacked. Scoop ice cream and place near the pineapple and sprinkle with the coconut.
This will serve 4 people….you may have to tell them NOT to lick their plates. HA!
