  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup Wilton dark cocoa melts
  • ½ cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 12 maraschino cherries with stems


  • Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple.
  • Slice the pineapple into rings, leaving the skin on.
  • Cut the pineapple rings into wedges and lay them on the cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the dark cocoa melts for 45 seconds. Stir. Continue to microwave in 15-second intervals until completely melted. Stir after each interval.
  • Dip a pineapple wedge into the melted chocolate. Lay on cookie sheet. Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle with coconut and macadamia nuts. Gently press a maraschino cherry into the chocolate.
  • Repeat step 6 until all of the pineapple wedges are decorated. Cover cookie sheet loosely with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes until the chocolate is completely hardened.
  • Serve within 24 hours.
