I made up this recipe by using different components of other recipes that I have seen and the end result was the most delish, delicate, divine grilled dessert. The grilled phyllo dough gives this recipe a nice crunchy texture while the warm cinnamon grilled pineapple is so juicy. The coconut caramel sauce is to die for and really takes this dessert to the next level. Top it off with some whipped cream! YUM!

NOTE: you can also substitute the pineapple with grilled bananas!

This was SUCH a good dessert!

I love grilled fruit. And the caramel sauce - delicious. I had never thought of grilling phyllo sheets before ... but that made for a really impressive dessert. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Grilled Pineapple Napoleons with Coconut Caramel Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. FOR CARAMEL SAUCE: Combine the sugar and coconut milk in heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking to dissolve the sugar. Simmer briskly until thick, golden and very flavorful, about 5 minutes or so, whisking often. Remove the pan from the heat and let the sauce cool to room temperature.
  2. FOR THE NAPOLEONS: Place 1 phyllo sheet on a flat work surface. Coat with cooking spray, and sprinkle evenly with 1/2 tsp. sugar. Top with 1 phyllo sheet; coat again with cooking spray, and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. sugar. Cut phyllo stack into thirds lengthwise; cut each in half, creating 6 even rectangular stacks. Repeat procedure with remaining phyllo sheets, cooking spray, and 1 tsp. sugar.
  3. Grill phyllo stacks, without grill lid, over medium-low heat, 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Set aside till ready to assemble.
  4. Next sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on both sides of the pineapple slices. Grill the pineapple on med heat until warmed through and softened. Remove from grill onto a plate and get ready to assemble the napoleons.
  5. Place 1 grilled phyllo stack on each of 6 serving plates; top with pineapple slices. Drizzle caramel sauce evenly on top of pineapple slices. Top each with 1 grilled phyllo stack. Top with fresh whipped cream or ready whip and drizzle with more caramel sauce. Serve immediately while pineapple is still warm.
