Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • 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.

  • While the pineapples are cooking, whisk the mascarpone and vanilla in a small bowl to blend. Set aside.

  • Combine the chocolate-hazelnut spread and cream in a small bowl and stir to combine. Place in a microwave on high for about 2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds to blend well. Alternatively, you can combine the chocolate-hazelnut spread and cream in a small saucepan, set over low heat, and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Heat until satiny smooth and easy to pour, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Transfer the pineapple slices to a large platter. Drizzle the warm chocolate-hazelnut sauce over.

  • Dollop the mascarpone mixture atop. Sprinkle with the hazelnuts and serve.
