Frozen Pineapple Chocolate Rings

Yummy yummy yummy – a great way to get one of your 5-a-day whilst having a little treat!

Makes 6 rings (I may have eaten one before I took the photo….)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pineapple
  • 100g chocolate
  • Other toppings – see ideas at the bottom

METHOD:

  1. Cut the pineapple into 6 slices, removing the skin and the middle.
  2. Freeze overnight.
  3. When frozen, melt the chocolate in a bowl above a saucepan of simmering water.
  4. Dip the rings in the chocolate, and cover with any other toppings – this will have to be done quickly if the chocolate is to be used as a ‘sticking agent’ as the frozen pineapple will cause the chocolate to harden quickly.
  5. Eat immediately or stick in the freezer for keeping.
  6. Enjoy!
