It's got all the ingredients for a pina colada, including rum, and even has chocolate, whipped cream and a cherry on top!

Give it a try... a little bit of work, but oh so worth it! And don't even go near that bathroom scale!!

Our challenge for this week (ending Oct.1, 2011) was to make a sweet sammie w/8 ingredients or less... this is my creation.

Holy cow, as soon as you take a bite of this delicious dessert you feel like you're on a beach somewhere in the Carribean. The tortilla is crispy and the banana's warm and creamy. I love the added flavor from the rum on the pineapples and coconut. The whipped cream and cherry on top complete the fantastic flavor combination. What a treat!

Tip: If you don't want to use rum, substitute 1/4 tsp of rum extract. The Test Kitchen

banana
1 c
melted milk chocolate chips
1/2 c
chunk pineapple, drained (about 6-8 pieces)
1/4 c

How to Make Pina Colada Roll

Step-by-Step

  • 1The day before: In small bowl, place drained pineapple and coconut; add about 1 tsp. rum (I used Capt. Morgan Spiced Rum). Stir to combine well. Cover and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. The liquid should be mostly absorbed when you're ready to use it.
  • 2Place chocolate in microwave on low heat until it is melted; I had to add a 1/2 tsp. of oil to get it to keep from getting hard before I got it all used up.
  • 3Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave on 40% power for about 30 seconds, until they are warm and pliable.
  • 4Peel and slice banana in half and then slice it lengthwise (4 pcs). Spread 1 Tbsp melted chocolate on center of tortilla, just what the banana pieces will cover; lay banana pieces side by side, cut side up; drizzle just a few drops of chocolate on bananas; top with pineapple/coconut mixture (about 6 pcs. of pineapple fit on top of bananas). Drizzle with a little bit more chocolate!
  • 5Sprinkle some chopped pecans over and then roll up as for a burrito, keeping it as taut as you can and fold in sides. I used toothpicks to keep it closed (see pic).
  • 6Deep fry in oil for about 3-4 minutes, until they are crisp and light brown. Remove with tongs and place on paper towel on a rack. Let cool.
  • 7When cool, drizzle yet a little more chocolate over and then squirt a nice amount of whipped cream in center of top, then put a cherry on that. Sprinkle with a few more pecans.
  • 8This is NOT finger food, you'll have to cut with a sharp knife and eat it with a fork...Enjoy!
