Who knew, you can take this....
And make it into the most delish dessert ever?  Here's what you need:

1 pineapple
4 tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups spiced rum
1 tbsp honey
1 tub light cool whip
Dark Chocolate (optional)

Take your pineapple and cut the top off.  Use this flat end of the pineapple for stability and cut all the sides off of the pineapple so it looks like this:
Cut the other end off of the pineapple and then cut slices that are about 1/2 inch thick.  Try your best to make them the same thickness.

Whisk you rum and honey together in a bowl.

Place the pineapple slices in a single layer in the bottom of a dish.  I had to do 2 layers of pineapple because they didn't fit in a single layer and it worked out fine.  Sprinkle the top of the pineapple with cinnamon (I sprinkled both layers separately). 

Pour the rum mixture over the pineapple and marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
If you are using a regular grill, grill the pineapple on both sides for about 2-3 minutes until warmed through and slight grill marks are visible.  I used my Griddler since it is chilly outside, so I cooked it on medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side.

I cut up the slices, removing the tough center before serving.  In the past, I have served the slices on a platter for people to eat around the core.  Since I was serving in single portions this time, I cut up the pineapple, topped it with cool whip, and then dark chocolate shavings.
