Everytime I eat one of these frozen pineapple pops I reminisce over a wonderful memory. One summer a number of years ago all of our grandchildren (at that time) were visiting. I had a chocolate fountain and thought I would have the kids dip fruit and pieces of cake into the fountain as their dessert. Their eyes were sooo big looking at that dripping chocolate! They loved it and I discovered a combination I never knew was so good, which is chocolate and pineapple. I decided to make these pops and keep them in the freezer for that sweet and refreshing snack. I have a bag of plain pineapple and a bag of dark chocolate dipped pineapple pops in my freezer. I love choosing either, especially during the hot summer.
These are so easy to make and if you want them dipped in chocolate, the key is to freeze the pineapple pieces with a wooded stick in them. While they are frozen, dip them into the melted chocolate and put them back in the freezer. Done!
I took some pictures of the easiest way I have found to cutting a pineapple into pieces, so I have included those in this post too. I hope you enjoy this frozen delight!
- One pineapple
- Flat wooden sticks
- 4 oz. chocolate, melted
- Cut pineapple into slices (approx ¼ of a ring)
- Slide a wooden stick into middle of the slice
- Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silicone mat
- Place sheet in freezer
- When frozen, melt chocolate either in a microwave or over a double boiler
- Dip frozen pops into melted chocolate and place back on the sheet
- Put back in freezer until chocolate is hard
- Store in the freezer in a zip lock plastic bag
If using an already cored pineapple, cut in half or quarters on end and slice into pieces
