Chocolate Hazelnut Grilled Pineapple

This is a fresh and unexpected combination of flavors that taste amazing together. Dollops of vanilla mascarpone, chocolate hazelnut spread and caramelized pineapple is an explosion of fresh summer flavor - and the hazelnuts add a perfect bit of crunch throughout.

Ingredients

  • 2 pineapples, (peeled, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices and core removed)
  • Olive oil
  • 2/3 cup mascarpone cheese, (room temperature)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread, (such as Pariani*)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts

Instructions

  1. Prepare the outdoor barbecue to medium-high heat. If you do not have a barbecue, you can use an indoor grill pan set to medium high heat. Lightly oil the grill. Grill the pineapple slices until heated through and beginning to brown, about 3 minutes per side. It's important to leave the pineapples on the grill, untouched so that you can create the grill marks.
  2. While the pineapples are cooking, whisk the mascarpone and vanilla in a small bowl to blend. Set aside.
  3. Transfer the pineapple slices to a large platter. Drizzle the chocolate-hazelnut spread on top.
  4. Dollop the mascarpone mixture atop. Sprinkle with the hazelnuts and serve.
  5. Cook',s Note: If using Pariani, the chocolate hazelnut spread will be a drizzle-able consistency already. If using Nutella or another chocolate hazelnut spread that is thicker in consistency, scoop it into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 15-second intervals until it reaches the right consistency.
