Pineapple party time

Ruby Borrowdale said “It’s easy to set a glamour stage for a tropical party. Indoor palms . . . leis . . . flowers for guests’ hair . . . shells doubling for dishes . . .  reed place mats – and party dishes with the true flavour of the tropics – Golden Circle Tropical Pineapple.”

And, to top things off ...

Chocolate-covered Pineapple  
Preparation time: 20 min.
Ingredients: small tin pineapple rings; 175g – 200g plain chocolate; decorations
Drain the pineapple rings thoroughly and cut them into halves or quarters. Break up the chocolate and melt in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Using two forks, carefully dip the pineapple chunks in the chocolate, coating them evenly.
Dry on waxed paper, and before the chocolate sets, decorate with crysrtallised violets, yellow mimosa balls or silver dragees.

“They tasted really sickly sweet, Darani and her friend Bella were here and they couldn't wait to start making them and eating chocolate!” Jane.
And, if that's all not sweet enough try some Pineapple Rock!

Or for a summertime party, these icy pineapple sticks that Jane found in her local supermarket.

  1. I love the look of those little pineapple jubes - I have put them on trifles before - very cute. Pineapple rock is new to me - what a great find.
