There's no other way to put this: these are fruit kebabs. I know how this sounds, but that's not how they taste.
These skewer-threaded chunks of pineapple are sprinkled with sugar and blitzed on the barbecue or under the grill till that absurdly yellow, tropical-sunshine flesh is scorched a deep, golden brown. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, there is more. You make a thick, dark coconut-rum-deepened chocolate sauce and dip the pineapple into it as you eat.
To make this less a Barbie-fest, however, you can forget the bamboo skewer element and simply sugar and grill pieces of pineapple and serve them up to be eaten relatively elegantly, with knife and fork, a jugful of hot chocolate sauce on the table alongside.
