Malibu Soaked Pineapple Dipped In Dark Chocolate

because...why wouldn't you?! 

I have had malibu soaked pineapple quite a few times and always love it. It is refreshing and not too overwhelming. This time I also used pineapple fusion rum{a new bacardi that is coconut and pineapple flavored. yum.} One day I was just sitting around thinking of foods to bring to a party and this idea popped into my mind. I could marry drinks/dessert into one item. Less for me to carry to the party..

and let's not kid ourselves...less expensive than to have to make two separate items. Which I have a problem with. If you invite me to a gathering I can never decide what to bring and I usually come with a plethora. My Friends love it. My wallet...not so much;)

and seriously though...dark chocolate and pineapple. yes, please. right this moment!

This is really so easy! and quick. The one thing I recommend is that you buy somewhat 'good' chocolate. Quality is key in this simple recipe. and obviously if you prefer milk chocolate(why though?!) you could use that. and if you want to make this kid friendly, just abstain from soaking it in the rum:)

ingredients
1 cup pineapple(cut up)
1 cup chocolate
1/2 cup rum

put pineapple in container that has a lid and pour rum over top, put lid back on, (shaking to make sure you have covered as much as possible) leave for at least 4 hours, but overnight is even better. When you are ready, drain the pineapple(and save that juice to make yourself a cocktail!!! hello, people!!! No waste) Melt the chocolate. I did mine in 30 second intervals in the microwave. Pat the pineapple down and dip in chocolate. Place on wire rack to set and then package up to take with you. 

Just be careful if you are driving. This things can be deceiving and are rather potent.,

  1. Oh yes, I need these! I've soaked various fruits in malibu before, it's so good. But never covered them in chocolate! To think how much I've been missing out all this time...

  8. I always have that problem when being invited somewhere too. Haha. I'm with Chelsea? This can be healthy right? I was just having a discussion with my aunt last night that dark chocolate had to be healthier than milk chocolate cause it was less processed in my eyes. SMH, I think we were just using it as an excuse to eat all the dark chocolate in the bowl and not feel guilty.
