Grilled Pineapple with Nutella & Macadamia Nuts

Happy Friday ya’ll! Today is not just any friday, it is the last friday of the month. Which means we are headed into March! Craziness!!

Today is also Mystery Dish Day!! Hip Hip Hurray!

This month for Mystery Dish, the host was Christine over at I Dig Pinterest. If you haven’t checked her out yet, you need to head over there now! {well, check out the recipe first then head over there. :)} The ingredients she challenged us with were:

  • Fresh Mushrooms
  • Pork
  • Spinach
  • Cream Cheese
  • Pineapple
  • Butterscotch Chips
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • Ritz Crackers
  • Tortillas

My first initial thought when I got these ingredients was to go with my very favorite omelet, a Spinach Mushroom Omelet with Cream Cheese and Tomatoes. While it is seriously amazing, I had made it before so thats no fun and definitely not challenging.

Mystery Dish is all about a challenge! So I decided to stick with the dessert recipes theme I had from last month {Strawberry Orange Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips} and make another healthy dessert!

One word.. Nutella.

Done. Go make it! Now!

No really, Nutella melting over grilledsweet fresh pineapple and topped with toasted macadamia nuts. Absolutely amazing and  count em’ 3 ingredients!

Yup, your welcome!

This dessert comes together in less than 15 minutes and is to die for. My husband is already requesting a repeat order of this and I am more than happy to oblige because it was that good. You really don’t even feel bad eating it either because its fruit for dessert. 🙂 Win!!!
